Madrid Players Celebrate With The Fans

Real Madrid finished off the preseason with a stupendous triumph over AC Milan in their last game, before contending in the UEFA Super Cup in the upcoming week.

The Santiago BernabĂ©u Trophy or most commonly known by it’s Spanish name, Trofeo Santiago BernabĂ©u. Real Madrid organises this friendly tournament each year in the memory of the club’s long time president Santiago BernabĂ©u.

Real Madrid have won this trophy the most number of times, with a total of 28 titles to their name.

Match Recap:

  • Energizing from the very start, the fans adored the match, as it was an exceptionally engaging game, played at a quick pace and the goals were not hard to come by.
  • After a Marcelo cross at the 2nd minute, Bale associated with Carvajal so the full-back, with space, put a solid cross onto the head of Benzema who scored a goal with his first risky shot.
  • Be that as it may, the Italians did not appear to be intimidated as two minutes later, Higuain, rifled a shot past Real Madrid’s goal keeper, Keylor Navas to make it 1-1.

  • The initial vigour picked up from the start of this match, continued as Asensio and Bale kept breaking AC Milan’s defence but were constantly being stopped by AC Milan’s defenders.
  • And it was only a matter of time, as Real Madrid’s consistent attacks, earned them a reward before the first half, as Bale struck a goal to put Madrid in the lead.

  • In the 2nd half, Real Madrid became more dominant as they controlled the midfield, and ball possession in an attempt to create a scoring chance.
  • On the other hand, the Italians were searching for a draw, however, Madrid’s goal keeper, Keylor Navas was constantly blocking off their attempts.
  • Now, in the 2nd halve’s injury time Borja Mayoral struck the 3rd and last goal of the match, as Real Madrid won yet another title of the Santiago BernabĂ©u Trophy.

Overall, Julen Lopetegui’s new side played well before the fans and were deservedly granted with their 28th win of the Santiago BernabĂ©u Trophy.
