La Liga victory over Rayo Vallecano sealed by Karim Benzema — Real Madrid

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale.

Real Madrid were dominant from the off and looked risky going forward and their superiority reaped its rewards with just 13 minutes on the clock. "I don't know what the reason for that was".

"We are still alive in all the competitions we are playing in". We should have had a bigger lead at the break.

Santiago Solari may have wondered how his side were only one goal up at the interval, and another clear chance went begging six minutes into the second half when Dimitrievski thwarted Asensio's powerful half-volley from point-blank range with a fearless stop.

- Karim Benzema has scored six goals in 16 La Liga matches this season, one more than he had last term (five goals in 32 appearances). Today with our good play we kept the ball and made lots of chances. "We don't like this result, we wanted to finish with a victory".

Isco raised his arms and shouted when a miss in the surprise 3-0 Champions League loss to CSKA drew jeers from supporters.

Indeed, it appears that InSight landed inside an impact crater that later filled with sand, NASA officials said. The $850 million InSight mission launched in May, along with two fly-along cubesats named MarCO-A and MarCO-B.

"I was delighted with the support of the fans through the whole game", Solari replied.

According to a UK Sun report, the encounter saw the Los Blancos suffer the worst defeat in the Champions League before home fans, but have already sealed a spot in the knockout rounds going into the game.

Real will now turn their attentions to Saturday's league match at home against Rayo Vallecano.

Casemiro, Nacho Fernandez and Sergio Reguilon are all close to a return to first team action following injuries, with Madrid flying out Sunday to Abu Dhabi ahead of next Wednesday's Club World Cup semifinal against Mexican club Chivas or Japan's Kashima Antlers.

"I think [Karim] just got a bang, and Marco too", Solari said.

"On the field, I have done everything to win, the numbers don't lie but don't think that I'm less happy if I don't win. We will see tomorrow, although the plane is tomorrow, so we don't have much time".
