It was an easy game for Real Madrid as soon as Gareth Bale scored the opening goal in the first minute of action. The Welshman proved that he is ready to lead Real this season and even got time to score another goal late in the game.
Asensio wrote his name in the score sheet as well. His golazo shows that he is not only a great prospect but also a player who can make a big impact this season.
Zidane kept both James and Isco on the bench, even though Modric wasn't available. This means that those two players will have to work very hard if they want to feature regularly throughout the year.
Casemiro's physical presence in the midfield and Mateo Kovacic's solid game allowed Real Madrid to keep a clean sheet with starting goalkeeper Keylor Navas out recovering from a heel injury. It will be important for Real Madrid to keep this momentum going when Celta Vigo visit the Santiago Bernabéu next weekend.
