If Karim Benzema had displayed some moods against a Vinicius, a partner considered too personal, he will probably have been less bitter to evolve alongside Eden Hazard. Four days having snatched an unexpected draw (2-2) on the lawn of Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Champions League, Real Madrid won Saturday at home against promoted Huesca (4-1, 8th day of La Liga).
For his first start of the season in all competitions – on the left wing of the 4-3-3 set up by Zinédine Zidane – Hazard delivered a convincing performance, although the Madrid machine took a good thirty minutes to get started. The goal of the Belgian winger is magnificent, pierced in the axis to unleash an unstoppable mine from 25 meters (1-0, 40 ‘).
Benzema scored an equally nice goal with his chest-recovery control sequence (2-0, 45th), before going there with his double header (4-0, 90th + 1), his second and third goals from the season in the Championship. The two friends have combined a lot, their connection even allowing the French to offer the third goal to Federico Valverde (3-0, 54th).
After their great victory against FC Barcelona (1-3) in the Clasico, the Madrilenians seem to have finally started their season, and temporarily recover the lead of the Championship (16 points, two more than Real Sociedad which plays Sunday). A good omen before receiving Inter Milan in C1 on Tuesday, then to continue with three trips taken (Valencia, Villarreal, then Inter Milan again).
