Carlo Ancelotti´s men faced UD Almeria at the Power Horse Stadium. Madrid debuted in the championship with the intention of continuing their winning streak once they won the European Super Cup against Eintracht Frankfurt. The Italian decided to completely change the face of the team by leaving some of the names that lifted the tittle last Wednesday on the bench. For his part, Rubi had to take out an eleven of circumstances when the inscriptions of some signings did not arrive for the first day of the league, although he was able to count on his two starts Ramazani and Umar Sadiq.
Rubi´s team surprised as soon as the match started with a pass filtered from above by Eguaras in a making mistake by Rüdiger that Ramazani took advantage of with his speed and crossed an unstoppable shot towards Thibaut Courtois goal, thus putting the local team ahead. This is was the first goal in the top category in the last seven seasons.
The reaction of Ancelotti´s team was to attack more down Vini´s flank. And just in two minutes multiple chances arrived, firstly, from Fede Valverde who went high, and then a shot from Karim Benzema who was also went over the crossbar after a run by the Brazilian down the flank. One of the clearest was the French striker himself after a good cross from Toni Kroos, but his header went straight into the hands of the local goalkeeper.
The team from Indal was being subjected to the onslaught of the people from Madrid, and once they got ahead on the scoreboard, the idea was really clear, hold on the result and look for a counterattack,which meant that Real Madrid was continuously in a harassment and demolition towards the goal defended by Fernando.
Almeria also had them in the boots of Umar Sadiq, who tried from outside the area without success, but the match was completely dominated by Real Madrid with the ball. Although as counterproductive as it may seen, it was Rubi´s team that felt more comfortable on the field defending.
On the second half of the game would arrive both goals of the current champion of Europe and Spanish league. Karim would assist Lucas Vazquez to score his first goal of the season. Then, in the last terms of the game, Alaba would score an amazing fault goal. The defender was MVP of the match and he seemed really solid on defense.
