Watch: Real Madrid vs Valladolid Highlights (6-0) | Karim Benzema Best Moment and Hat-Trick on 9jalatest.ng
Real Madrid defeated Pacheta’s helpless Real Valladolid team 6-0 at a sun-drenched Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, extending their unbeaten LaLiga home record to 17 games.
Given the size of Barcelona’s lead at the top of LaLiga going into this match, some may have understood Real’s sluggish start on a pleasant afternoon in Madrid, particularly with a Champions League quarterfinal match against Chelsea rapidly approaching. Nevertheless, Roque Mesa’s shot for Valladolid hit the crossbar after just 10 minutes, nearly giving the defending European champions a rude awakening. However, Carlo Ancelotti’s team responded brilliantly and took the lead on minute 23 when Rodrygo’s calm finish from inside the box culminated a clinical counterattack started by Marco Asensio.
After scoring, the Whites’ previous complacency turned into pure rage, and Karim Benzema assumed the position of Pucela’s chief punisher by scoring a quickfire hat-trick in the first half. The Frenchman started the scoring for the day with a guided header and added two more goals, the best of which was his third from a distance of 20 yards. Benzema appeared to be behind Rodrygo’s pass into the penalty area, but he expertly twisted to shoot an almost unbelievable overhead kick past Sergio Asenjo.
