Real Madrid continued its impressive pre-seaon with its six victories out of six preseason games as they thrashed Chinese side Guangzhou 7-1.
Just six minutes after the kick-off, Sami Khedira sent the stadium wild when he opened the scoring as he headed home a fantastic cross from Karim Benzema. It was his first goal in a Real Madrid shirt.
In the 30th minute Ozil made it 2-0 when he scored a brilliant goal following a smart pass from Khedira. By the 38th minute, it was already 0-3 thanks to a powerful shot from Karim Benzema who has been unstoppable in the preseason so far. Cristiano was so close to scoring the Whites’ fourth goal but he was denied by the crossbar.
During half-time, Mourinho made his first substitution as he sent Alvaro Arbeloa on for Sergio Ramos. And it took Benzema only three minutes after the start of the second half to score his second and the team’s fortuh goal of the night.
Ronaldo made it five when he scored from an amazing back-heel.
After Ronaldo’s goal, Mourinho made eight substitutions: Kaka, Coentrao, Higuain, Nacho, Albiol, Varane, Adan & Di Maria all came on for Callejon, Khedira, Ronaldo, Ozil, Marcelo, Benzema, Alonso and Casillas.
With 30 minutes remaining before the final whistle, the locals were looking to score a goal of honor but they failed to capitalize on their chances. After Ronaldo left the pitch, Kaka became the fans’ favorite and they chanted his name in the stands.
Due to the many changes in both teams, the intensity of the match decreased, but Real Madrid kept ball possession and were looking to score more goals. Mourinho decided to send in Castilla player Jese who only needed 20 seconds to get on the score-sheet thanks to an exceptional individual effort by Di Maria. Another brilliant goal, 0-6.
Di Maria was a constant danger for the locals and managed to score his first goal with Real Madrid this season in the 83rd minute. And just 3 minutes before the final whistle, Guangzhou were finally able to score against the whites to make it 1-7 and get their fans excited.
