Real Madrid players stumbled in the 18th round of the Spanish La Liga, drawing 0-0 at home with Cadiz.
The Cadiz players arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium with only one goal – to keep their net intact. They had 18 percent of possession of the ball and did not send a single shot into Real’s goal, and yet they succeeded in their intention thanks to Jeremias Ledesma.
The 28-year-old Argentine goalkeeper defended brilliantly and is most deserving of the guests reaching the eighth draw of the season. Ledesma defended a total of nine shots from home players, especially in the 56th minute when he stopped Eden Hazard’s shot with his head, and in the 81st minute when he prevented Karim Benzema from scoring the 14th goal of the season.
Despite winning a point, Cadiz remained on the penultimate place in the table, while Real remained the leader of the Spanish championship.
Real Madrid defeated Inter 2-0 in the last round of the Champions League’s Group D.
The Kings welcomed Inter at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium and recorded their fifth triumph from six games this season in the Champions League with a 2-0 result. The first goal of the match was scored in the 17th minute. Rodrygo found Toni Kroos on the right side, who shot with his left foot from 20 meters and scored for 1-0.
Inter were unsuccessful in attacking and trying to equalize, but when Nicolo Barella naively received a red card for hitting Eder Militao in the 64th minute, it was clear that the points would remain in Madrid. The final 2-0 was set by Marco Asensio in the 79th minute of the match when he shot from the edge of the penalty area and hit the inner side of the post for an eurogoal.
In the second match of this group, the last-placed Shakhtar and Sheriff drew 1-1.
Real Madrid footballers recorded a routine victory away to Real Sociedad with the result being 2-0 in the 16th round of La Liga.
Real had the opportunity to continue a great series in Spain, but the match did not take place in a great atmosphere for Madrid because Karim Benzema was injured in the early stages of the match and had to leave the field. In the first half, Los Blancos had several opportunities to take the lead, but Sociedad also threatened. There were no goals until the break.
Real Madrid opened the second part of the game brilliantly. Luka Jovic assisted Vinicius Junior who scored for the leadership of the Royal Club. Only ten minutes later, Jovic joined the scorers. The member of the Serbian national team scored after a corner and thus confirmed the victory of his team.
Thanks to amazing defensive work by Militao and great efficiency in the offense from Luka Jovic and Vinicius, the result remained 0-2. Real Madrid has eight points more than second-placed Sevilla and is quite confident on top of the La Liga table.
Real Madrid defeated Athletic Bilbao in the 9th round of the Spanish La Liga with the result 1-0, thus cementing themselves at first place on the table with seven points ahead of their city rival Atletico Madrid.
Real came to victory thanks to the incredible Karim Benzema, who scored for 1-0 in the 40th minute, which was his 12th goal this season. In addition, it is worth mentioning that he recorded seven assists and is currently the best player in the Spanish La Liga without a rival. The team from Bilbao could have scored a goal and secure one point, but Sancet in the 76th minute and Vesga in the 85th minute were not accurate.
After this game, Los Blancos remains at the top of the table with 36 points, seven more than Atletico Madrid, which have one game less. In the next match, the Royal Club will play against Real Sociedad, which is third on the table with 29 points, and this will certainly be a real test for Carlo Ancelotti’s team for this part of the season.
Real Madrid defeated Sevilla in the 15th round of the Spanish La Liga with the result 2-1.
In an exciting match at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, the guests took the lead in the 12th minute. Marcos Acuna took the corner, and Rafa Mir snuck the ball past Thibaut Courtois with his head from 12 meters for the lead of Sevilla. It took Real 20 minutes to equalize, and they came to it thanks to a big mistake by goalkeeper Yassine Bounou. Eder Militao shot from around 30 meters, the Seville goalkeeper reacted badly, as ball went “through his hands” and hit the post. Karim Benzema ran onto the blocked ball and scored for 1-1.
In the continuation of the match, Real Madrid dominated, as great opportunities were missed by Marco Asensio in the 46th and Vinicius Junior in the 70th minute. But, the young Brazillian superstar redeemed himself for a miss in the 87th minute with an absolute stunner. Militao found Vinicius with a long ball on the left side, when Vini outscored two players and went on to score an euro goal outside the penalty area.
At the end of the match, Sevilla could have reached an equalizer after a corner, but Thomas Delaney’s shot was miraculously saved by Thibaut Courtois.
