Benzema And Vini Junior Rescue Real Madrid Through Last Minute Goals From A Frustrating Valencia

Real Madrid emerged the winner in one of the biggest and hardest games in Spanish La Liga. After too much frustration from Che team during first half and most of the second half, Los Blancos somehow managed to score two last minute goals from two heroes and the result was an epic comeback. Despite the fact that Madrid had many chances during the first half, Valencia were the first to score during the 66th minute through a superb strike from Hugo Duro. Madrid coach reacted by making a few substitutions. He rested Casemiro, Eden Hazard and Lucas Modric and brought in Rodrigo, Eduardo Camavinga and Isco who fired up the game.

Minutes after the changes, Valencia players lost focus and gave the whites a chance to shoot on target. Vinicious Junior utilized this chance well and shot towards the goalkeeper. A deflection made it harder for the goalkeeper Mamardashvili, who dived in the wrong direction, to save Valencia. Two minutes later, Vinicious Junior’s cross went past Valencia’s defender to Benzema’s head and off his head into the net. The two goals sealed three points for Los Blancos. Vini was given the king of the match award.
