Real Madrid beat Italian club Juventus 2-0 at the Rose Bowl in a friendly match held in California, USA.
Real Madrid scored two goals: Karim Benzema in the first half from a penalty kick, and Marco Asensio in the second half after entering directly.
Real Madrid concluded its preparatory tour in the United States of America, which witnessed 3 matches.
Real Madrid lost their first friendly match against Barcelona with a goal without a response, and drew in the second against Mexican Club America with two goals for each party, so that their victory over Juventus is the first in the preparation period.
On the other hand, Juventus defeated Mexico’s Guadalajara with two goals without a response, and drew with Barcelona with two goals for each party, and therefore its loss against Real Madrid is its first in the preparation period.
Real Madrid will play the European Super Cup against Eintracht Frankfurt on August 10, and then open the Spanish League against Almeria on August 14.
Juventus will play a friendly against Atletico Madrid on August 7, and then open the Italian league against Sassuolo on August 15.
With the same 11 players who faced Liverpool in the Champions League final about two months ago, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti entered the Juventus match.
The Italian coach has pushed a formation that will likely be repeated when he meets Frankfurt in the first title fight of the new season.
On the other hand, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri pushed Mattia Perin in the goalkeeper, and the young Nicolo Faioli in the midfield, and Argentine Angel Di Maria participated in front of his former team.
White target after 8 seconds
Real Madrid got straight to the point and managed to beat Juventus after only 8 seconds, but the goal was canceled due to offside.
The goal was scored by an agreed-upon game that Real Madrid repeated in almost all of its matches last season, and is based on sending a longitudinal ball to one of the wings immediately after the start of play, and in this case the ball reached Fede Valverde – who was offside – and he passed it to Benzema, who scored without celebration.
Juventus, for its part, responded strongly by its captain, Leonardo Bonucci, who executed a wonderful free kick in the 13th minute that rebounded from the Thibaut Courtois bar.
The equalizer did not last long, especially when Danilo, the Juventus player – and the former Real Madrid player – missed a ball, to be missed by his compatriot Vinicius Junior and launched like a missile towards the penalty area, and here Danilo appeared again to commit a penalty kick this time in the 17th minute.
Captain Benzema hit and scored successfully, opening the scoring in the match, raising his score to two goals in the preparation period.
In the second half, Real Madrid continued their attacks, and Dani Carvajal, who participated for the first time in the preparation period after missing the first two matches due to injury, almost scored without Perin’s brilliance in the 59th minute.
Real Madrid’s fierce attacks continued in the 62nd minute, and Benzema hit a powerful left-footed ball from outside the penalty area, which was miraculously saved by Perin.
Immediately after that, Ancelotti made several changes, and only Courtois was among those who started the match.
The changes brought immediate results. The first substitute, Eden Hazard, set off a distinguished individual action, and passed to the second substitute, Jesus Vallejo – who participated in the left-back position – who sent a cross in turn to the third alternative, Marco Asensio, and the latter easily netted it in the 68th minute.
