Real Madrid continues its momentum with a dominant victory against Valencia. Two goals from Karim Benzema and one since the return of Marco Asensio helped Los Blancos keep their Liga title of hope alive. The first half was a bit of a struggle for Zinedine Zidane men. While they were playing well to keep possession, the Merengues found it hard to break the Valencia defense.
However, Zidane’s half-time talk team works like a charm as Los Blancos step up a gear, in the second half. They were playing with high intensity and dismantled Valencia from the back line several times, ultimately, scoring three goals. Here’s a look at how the players performed.
Thibaut Courtois’ No. 1 Real Madrid had an excellent game. While he didn’t have much to do in the second half, he made two brilliant saves in the first. One of them was a finger recording in one on one against Rodrigo Moreno. The second was a dip for the cameras to keep Geoffrey Kondogbia’s love at first sight out.
He ordered his region with confidence and often went out to claim or punch the air bullets. He claimed his 13th clean sheet of the season. The Belgian international is leading the Zamora trophy, and if he continues to perform at this level, he deserves it.
