Celta suffered an overwhelming defeat at Santiago Bernabéu. Celta played a good match -despite the final score- and had several scoring chances in the first stretch of the match.
Real Madrid got ahead at the 13 minute mark with a great goal by Bale. A few minutes later, a controversial play occurred in Real Madrid’s area with a more than probable penalty on academy player Brais Méndez. The match went on and before halftime Real scored its 3rd and 4th goal, by Bale again and Isco.
And they did. After halftime Celta tried to resist but Real Madrid kept pushing, seeking to score more goals, and they did. Achraf, Sergi Gómez in his own goal and Kroos completed Real’s thrashing.
