GOOOAAALLL!!! REAL MADRID 1-0 MALAGA – KARIM BENZEMA OPENS THE SCORING – Real Madrid work the ball down the left-hand touchline before eventually crossing the ball into the box.

The ball landed straight into the path of Karim Benzema, however, who simply had to put the ball into the empty net.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) had a good opportunity when he latched on to a cross from the wing, but his header from the six-yard box wasn’t accurate enough and the ball glanced away off the bar!
An unlucky rebound falls to Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) and he scores with a bullet header.
Marcelo finds Ronaldo at the back post and the Portuguese contorts his neck to plant a header onto the crossbar, it falls into the path of Benzema who has the simplest of finishes to double his tally for the season. Perfect start for the champions of Spain.
