Real Madrid entertained Real Valladolid at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to secure a win in front of their home fans. Los Blancos made a good start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 22nd minute when Rodrygo found the back of the net. Karim Benzema went on to score a quick-fire hattrick in the first half as the Madrid giants went into the half-time break 4-0 up on the scoreline.
