Real Madrid won the visit of Celta de Vigo (4-1), in the second round of the Spanish championship. Gonçalo Paciência was a key player in the Galician team.
The first half was interesting, as Benzema (14 minutes) scored the first goal from a penalty kick, as Iago Aspas (23) re-established equality for the hosts on the same coin. But Modric turned the game upside down with a real goal.
In the 41st minute, the Croatian midfielder put the ball out of Marchesene’s reach and brought back an advantage that Merengues would never give up. Vinicius Junior (56 minutes) extended the score with a Modric pass, and Valverde scored the fourth white goal to close the score.
