oh Real Madrid success Juventus 2-0 in a friendly match at Rose Bowl Stadium, USA. Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio scored Benzema’s second-half penalty kick goals.
It was Real Madrid’s first win on American soil in their pre-season tour. Juventus are coming off a draw with Barcelona and will play their last friendly against Atletico Madrid before the kick-off of the season. Real will be officially engaged in the middle of the European Super Cup against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Real Madrid started the game very briskly with possession in the attacking half, while the Juventus merengue marked the departure of the ball and came to face the danger in the Spanish team’s individual mistakes. Italy had the best chance to score in the 11th minute of the first half when a beautiful free kick by defender Bonucci hit the crossbar of goalkeeper Courtois.
However, the decisive error of the first half was Juve’s. Danilo defeated Vinicius Jr. With the goal, Real Madrid ramped up the pressure upfield and dominated the first 45 minutes at the Rose Bowl.
The momentum of the game remained practically the same after the break. While the Spanish were attacking the ball, the Italians were on the defensive. Carvajal had the best chance in the 14th minute when he finished off a lovely pass from Vinny Junior. And Perrin saw a great defense in action.
Closed the scoreboard
The Juve goalkeeper returned to work minutes later. In the 17th minute, Perrin flew over for a corner to save Benzema’s superb shot. Coach Carlo Ancelotti made several changes, however, as Real Madrid continued to attack. Asensio extended the scoring in the 24th minute after receiving Vallejo’s low pass without the goalkeeper. A second Madrid goal sealed the victory in the Rose Bowl.
