ruling triumph in their last preseason coordinate with a thorough 2-0 triumph over Italian monsters Juventus, who were outflanked for huge stretches by the European bosses.

Los Merengues amassed Juventus and applied tension from the initial moment and they didn’t yield even after the whole crew was pivoted in the last part. It’s a demonstration of the profundity and culture of a crew that really wants to win each rivalry they’re important for starting with the Aug. 10 UEFA Super Cup.

Before a sellout swarm of more than 93,000, Real Madrid displayed a fluid, streaming attack with Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr laying out the energy with their exchanging and quick fire mixes. Vinicius secured a discipline on one of those lightning quick vertical attacks, and Benzene changed over the spot kick. Another clinical passing gathering provoked the second unbiased goal by Marco Ascension in the last part.

It was a difficult night for Juventus, which looked disjointed and lacking ideas compared to Real Madrid. Star forward Dusan Vlahovic got his first minutes of the preseason, but he was isolated and didn’t impact the match. Star signing Angel Di Maria had his quietest preseason match, and starters Paul Pogba, Wojciech Szczesny, and Weston McKennie were absent due to injury.

Real Madrid’s next match comes on Aug. 10 in Helsinki when they face Eintracht Frankfurt for the UEFA Super Cup. Juventus will play another friendly against Atletico Madrid (Aug. 7) before opening its Serie A season against Sassuolo on Aug. 15.

Highligted few headings,

86th min.: Best Juventus chance of the second half. Cross from the right which crosses the face of the goal and goes out for a corner.

83rd min.: Marco Asensio gets a yellow for a wild over-the-ball tackle on Juan Cuadrado. Totally unnecessary.

81st min.: The crowd is shouting “ole” with every Real Madrid pass. This is humiliating for Juventus.

72nd min.: Over the course of the last 10 minutes Juventus have trickled in subs, including one for a sub who was immediately injured. Here’s the updated Juve squad:

Juventus lineup (4-3-3, right to left): 23-Carlo Pinsoglio (GK) — 42-Tommaso Barbieri, 15-Federico Gatti, 24-Daniele Rugani, 17-Luca Pellegrini — 28-Denis Zakaria, 13-Nicolo Ravella, 34-Nicolo Cudrig,— 33-Marley Ake (30-Matias Soule), 40-Marco Da Graca, 11-Juan Cuadrado

69th min.: Goal Real! Bunch of new players for Real Madrid? Same Real Madrid. Incredible passing combination at the top of the box and Jesus Vallejo crosses the ball from the left to the top of the six-yard box, where Marco Asensio punches home. Beautiful in its simplicity.

64th min.: Nine players come on for Real Madrid. Here’s the new lineup:

Real Madrid lineup (4-3-3, right to left): 1-Thibaut Courtois (GK) — 17-Lucas Vazquez, 22-Antonio Rudiger, 6-Nacho, 5-Jesus Vallejo — 19-Dani Ceballos, 18-Aurelien Tchouameni, 25-Eduardo Camavinga — 11-Marco Asensio, 7-Eden Hazard, 21-Rodrygo

62nd min.: It’s a clinic from Real Madrid. Karim Benzema curls the ball that was destined for the low left corner, but Juve ‘keeper Perin saves it. The Real Madrid players don’t want to come off the field. They quickly took the corner kick so that the subs couldn’t make it in.

54th min.: It’s been all Real Madrid to start the second half and they’re playing with the same verve and inspired teamwork.

Juve’s Manuel Locatelli had to make an incredible acrobatic leap to stop a clear chance, Bonucci had a miscommunication with his ‘keeper, and Real Madrid’s David Alaba pushed all the way up from centre back to fire on goal. It’s not been pretty for the Italian side.

46th min.: Second half is underway. Antonio Rudiger is in for Eder Militao. Juan Cuadrado comes in for Angel Di Maria.

Real Madrid 1, Juventus 0

Half-time: Real Madrid with the deserved lead in this one. From the opening whistle the European champions showed their intent. They’re direct and vertical, and they attack in numbers with players interchanging positions and combining well. When Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr. are on the ball things are happening.

For however liquid as Real Madrid seem to be, Juventus are slow, disconnected and without thoughts in the assault. Anything they do in the last third regularly relies upon Angel Di Maria’s imagination, which has been little today — it is by all accounts a low energy outing for him up until this point — or they rely upon Dusan Vlahovic to make something for himself. Yet, Vlahovic has been disconnected and imperceptible. Furthermore, there is no science with Moise Kean. It’s the main game that Vlahovic and Di Maria are playing together, however Juve mentor Massimiliano Allegri has a ton of work to do.

44th min.: Dusan Vlahovic has been anonymous, but he gets a ball in the box only for Eder Militao to recover acrobatically and clear the ball for a corner. Nothing comes of it.

38th min.: Not much happening in the game, but what’s clear is that Real Madrid are very dangerous when they’re running at the Juventus back line. Juventus doesn’t have as easy a time creating dangerous attacking moves. Things don’t flow as well as they do for Real.

27th min.: Juventus have a case for a penalty! But the referee does not call it and there is no VAR. Ferland Mendy inexplicably passes the ball back into his own box and Angel Di Maria beats Eder Militao to the ball. It looked like a penalty. But it remains 1-0.

17th min.: Penalty for Real Madrid! After a bad Dusan Vlahovic giveaway, Vinicius Jr takes the ball into the box and Danilo brings him down from behind. Clear penalty.

13th min.: Juve captain Leonardo Bonucci hits the top left corner of the goal on a set piece. Wow, how this game has changed. Moments later Dusan Vlahovic and Denis Zakaria get in each other’s way in the Real Madrid box. Juventus are back in this game.

11th min.: First serious attack from Juventus and it comes because left back Alex Sandro pushes all the way up to the end line. But the Juventus forwards can’t finish off the play.

5th min.: Manuel Locatelli with a bad, bad tackle on Fede Valverde. No card shown, and Real Madrid execute a training ground play.

The Spanish champions are off to an electric start. It’s another poor start to a match for Juventus (the same thing happened against Barcelona, with their giveaways only compounding the problems and the pressure).

1st min.: The match kicks off. Juventus are in their black-and-white stripes, while Real Madrid are in their lilac kits. After 10 seconds Real Madrid scored through Karim Benzema, but three players were offside.

10 mins from kickoff: Mr. Juventus himself is out in California rooting for the team he once repped in a big way.

Real Madrid vs. Juventus lineups

Dani Carvajal recovers from an ankle injury and starts at right back against Juventus, but Lucas Vazquez is likely to replace him at halftime given it’s Carvajal’s first outing of the preseason. In the only other lineup question, Federico Valverde beats out Marco Asensio and Rodrygo for the right wing position.

Real Madrid starting lineup (4-3-3, right to left): 1-Thibaut Courtois (GK) — 2-Dani Carvajal, 3-Eder Militao, 4-David Alaba, 23-Ferland Mendy — 10-Luka Modric, 14-Casemiro, 8-Toni Kroos — 15-Federico Valverde, 9-Karim Benzema, 20-Vinicius Jr.

Real Madrid subs (18): 13-Andriy Lunin (GK), 26-Luis Lopez (GK), 30-Lucas Canizares (GK), 27-Vinicius Tobias, 17-Lucas Vazquez, 22-Antonio Rudiger, 6-Nacho, 5-Jesus Vallejo, 16-Alvaro Odriozola, 25-Eduardo Camavinga, 18-Aurelien Tchouameni, 19-Dani Ceballos, 11-Marco Asensio, 24-Mariano Diaz, 21-Rodrygo, 7-Eden Hazard, 29-Juanmi Latasa, 12-Borja Mayoral

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri previously confirmed that both Dusan Vlahovic and Weston McKennie would be making their preseason debuts against Real Madrid, but McKennie is nowhere to be found in the squad with early reports claiming a shoulder injury. Dusan Vlahovic makes his first start alongside Angel Di Maria and Moise Kean.

Backup Juventus ‘keeper Mattia Perin replaces regular Wojciech Szczesny, who has an adductor issue, while full-back/winger Juan Cuadrado starts on the bench.
