Real Madrid won 2-0 against Celta Vigo thanks to the connection between Lucas Vázquez and Marco Asensio. In the second, it was the Galician who played it to Asensio to solve a quick counterattack and get their second goal of the season.
Marco Asensio has finally scored his first goal for Real Madrid this season. He had to wait until 2021, but his first goal came against Celta Vigo after connecting with Lucas Vázquez.
The partnership between the two cemented the advantage of Zinedine Zidane’s team at the Alfredo di Stéfano. The first came from an Asensio cross for Lucas Vázquez, and this time it was the Galician that assisted.
In the 53rd minute of the match, Celta made a mistake in the clearance of the ball. Luka Modric robbed them in the centre-circle and started the lightning attack to get Madrid’s second goal.
The Croat controlled, gave it to Lucas Vázquez and he held on until the arrival of Asensio, who scored with his left against Rubén Blanco and gave Real Madrid some peace of mind.
