Benzema & Vinicius Jr, stars as Madrid thrash Valencia.
Real Madrid extended their lead at the top of La Liga to eight points as they eased to a 4-1 home win over Valencia with Karim Benzema & Vinicius Jr taking the spotlights.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team gradually gained control of the game and seized the lead through a Karim Benzema penalty, awarded after Casemiro was fouled just before half-time.
Valencia were enraged at the decision and collapsed in the second half, allowing Vinicius Junior to score two straightforward second-half goals.
Following a penalty kick save, Valencia’s Goncalo Guedes headed home the rebound, before Benzema struck again with his trademark class.
The French striker has now scored 301 goals for Real Madrid, placing him fourth on the club’s all-time goalscoring list, behind Cristiano Ronaldo, Raul, and Alfredo Di Stéfano.
