Just before halftime, Vinicius Jr. tied the score at 1-1 with a beautiful Karim Benzema cutback in between. After the interval, Karim Benzema ignited Madrid by sweeping the ball into the far corner following a dart and pass from Luka Modric. After Franck Kessie tripped Vinicius in the area, he was merciless, scoring from the penalty spot for Madrid’s third goal and adding the fourth with a lovely dink after a sharp Vinicius run.
