UNITED STATES: Real Madrid defeated Juventus by a score of 2-0 in their final preseason game, registering a commanding victory at the Rose Bowl Stadium, California.
Los Merengues surrounded Juventus from the first minute, and the team continued to feel the strain even when the team was switched in the second half.
Starting with the UEFA Super Cup on August 10, Real Madrid is eyeing nothing less than victory in every match.
Real Madrid cruises to victory
Real Madrid displayed a fluid, flowing attack in front of a sellout crowd of more than 93,000, with Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr. setting the tone with their rapid combinations and interchanging play.
On one of those incredibly swift vertical attacks, Vinicius was penalised, and Benzema successfully converted the penalty. In the second half, Marco Asensio scored again thanks to some more precise passing.
Juventus had a difficult night because, in comparison to its opponent, they seemed disjointed and lacked creativity. Star forward Dusan Vlahovic played his first preseason minutes, but he was alone and had no effect on the game.
With starters Paul Pogba, Sczczny, and Weston McKennie being out due to injury, star acquisition Angel Di Maria was nonexistent.
The official account of Real Madrid C.F. tweeted, “Superb team performance! #RMInTheUSA”
The UEFA Super Cup encounter between Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt will take place on Tuesday, August 10, in Helsinki. Before beginning its Serie A campaign against Sassuolo on August 15, Juventus will play another friendly match against Atletico Madrid.
