Real recover from the effects of El Clasico


Real Madrid won a difficult victory over Celta Vigo with two goals to one in the match after El Clasico

that was held at Balaidos Stadium in the 30th round of the Spanish League.

During the match, Real Madrid was technically led by David Ancelotti

the son and assistant coach of the team, Carlo Ancelotti, who was absent due to his infection with the Corona virus.

Real Madrid’s two goals in the match were scored by Karim Benzema, while Nolito scored Celta Vigo’s only goal.

With this victory, Real Madrid’s balance rose to the 69th point at the top of the table,

12 points ahead of second-placed Seville, while Celta Vigo’s balance stopped at the 36th point in 11th place.

The Real Madrid squad witnessed the return of Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy,

who missed the previous match against Barcelona due to injury.

Benzema threatened Celta Vigo’s goal in the ninth minute with a header after a cross from Lucas Vazquez, but the ball went wide.

Denis Suarez responded to the danger on Real Madrid’s goal with a powerful shot

that Courtois took for a corner kick in the 13th minute.

Only four minutes later, Real Madrid got a penalty kick after Eder Militao was kicked and Benzema hit the goal with success, scoring the first goal.

Iago Aspas almost equalized for Celta Vigo with a wonderful free kick, but Courtois shined and took the ball out in a wonderful way.

In the 39th minute, Celta Vigo equalized with a header from Gallardo,

but the referee canceled the goal after returning to the video technique to interfere with Aspas who was in an offside position.

In the second half, Celta Vigo equalized again,

but this time without canceling the goal after an organized attack that ended with Nolito’s feet in the net.

The referee awarded a second penalty kick to Real Madrid in the 62nd minute

after Rodrygo was kicked, but this time Benzema failed to score after Celta Vigo goalkeeper Dutero shone.

In the 67th minute, Mendy was kicked inside the penalty area,

so the referee awarded a third penalty kick to Real Madrid,

and Benzema returned to pay, but he excelled this time and scored the second goal for Real Madrid.
