Zinedine Zidane’s side took the lead in the Spanish league after Matchday 5, thanks to their success Sunday afternoon at Levante (0-2), thanks to goals from Vinicius and Benzema.
The defending champion is doing pretty well. After five La Liga matches, the Zinedine Zidane training is undefeated and has a record of three wins and a draw (1), conceded away on the second day of the championship (on the lawn of Real Sociedad – 0-0). The last success dates back to this Sunday at the end of the afternoon on the Levante field (0-2), 18e of the ranking before receiving the Spanish mastodon.
Vinicius Junior opened the scoring quarter-hour after a corner kick (0-1, 16e), imitated at the very end of the game by Karim Benzema while Levante had been dangerous on at least three occasions (61e, 77e, 79e). The French striker scored in added time (90e + 5), served by Rodrygo, after winning his duel against the goalkeeper.
The Madrilenians record a third consecutive success at the start of the season and before the international break. Real now have 10 points, one better than their provisional runners-up, Betis Sevilla.
