The encounter commenced with Thibaut Courtois being put to the test within the initial 90 seconds, thwarting Samu Omorodion’s near-post attempts with agile saves. Madrid gradually asserted dominance, breaking the deadlock after ten minutes through Bellingham, whose fortuitous volleyed cross found the net past Jesus Owono. Despite initial hiccups, Vinicius remained a constant threat down the left flank, eventually finding the mark with a close-range finish from Eduardo Camavinga’s delivery.

Courtois maintained vigilance, denying Ianis Hagi’s long-range effort, while Madrid’s attacking prowess shone through with Valverde’s exquisite strike before halftime, extending their lead. The Belgian shot-stopper’s intervention thwarted Hagi once more, preserving Madrid’s clean sheet as the game progressed.
