Madrid – Real Madrid won the third match in the new season of the Spanish football league. Karim Benzema secured a 3:1 victory at Espanyol with two late goals. Robert Lewandowski also scored twice, who also managed to do it in the last round, and leads the scorers’ table. Thanks to him, Barcelona clearly beat Valladolid 4:0.

Real led from the 12th minute when Vinícius Júnior scored, but Josela equalized just before the end of the first half. After the break, Benzem’s goal was initially disallowed for offside, but in the 88th minute, the best footballer in Europe for the past season could already rejoice. After Rodryg’s cross, he sent the ball into the net from close range.

In a long setup, the home goalkeeper Lecomte received a red card for a foul on Ceballos, and the defender Cabrera had to go between the posts. In the tenth added minute, Benzema was given the opportunity to play a free kick and did not give the Español captain a chance in the goal. Next to Real, only Betis Sevilla is 100%.

Barcelona have beaten Valladolid in all six of their last head-to-head matches and the team from Catalonia extended that streak. Lewandowski played a big part in this, as he acrobatically finished off Raphinha’s cross in the 24th minute. The second goal was added before the end of the half by Pedri after a pass from Dembélé.

The French striker added another assist in the 65th minute when he found Lewandowski with a through pass who surprisingly finished with his backheel and the ball ended up in the goal thanks to the run of visiting defender Fernández. The Polish striker could have completed a hat-trick at the very end, but his shot was deflected by Matip onto the crossbar, from which the ball bounced straight to Sergi Roberto, who set the final score of the match.
