REAL MADRID WIN 1 - 2 LEICESTER IN FRIENDLY GAME

REAL MADRID notched up its fith straight pre-season friendly victory 1 - 2 against English 2 º Division Club LEICESTER. Don´t know if it was just me but it seemed an odd game without the fluid movements & intensity of previous encounters. Perhaps it was the fact the Real Madrid Coach Mourinho "experimented" more in this match & that did not allow the side to fully blend together. Whatever, the victory was good & important as Real Madrid fly straight onward to China for their Asian commitments

Karim Benzema scores for Real Madrid 2011

The player that will grab the headlines will be French forward KARIM BENZEMA who personally set up CALLEJON for his & Real Madrid´s first goal in the 43rd min, & then he himself scored the teams second in the 62nd min. Not so great performance as his last match for Benzema but scoring is his natural instinct & thus should be pleased. Argentine Gonzalo Higuain got a run in the latter part of the game & had some chances, but was out of tune & will need some more work. 


The English team was rewarded with a hard earned consolation goal at the end when DYER scored in the 89th min giving the local fans something to cheer after a great afternoon of entertaining Football.
