Viktoria Plzen vs. Real Madrid - Football Match Report

Real Madrid interim coach Santi Solari said his players deserved all the praise after Wednesday's 5-0 Champions League Group A win at Viktoria Plzen, with several on the squad saying Solari should be have the job until at least the end of the season.

Victory for the holders was new manager Santiago Solari's third consecutive win since taking charge, after Julen Lopetegui was sacked last month. "We have seen lovely goals and I enjoyed them". "Football is about the present and it's the next game that matters", he said, with a trip to Celta Vigo on Sunday next up for Real.

"I only think about the next game".

Benzema struck first on 21 minutes, weaving his way through the Plzen defence and beating goalkeeper Ales Hruska with a low shot.

An unmarked Benzema notched his second goal in the 37th minute with a redirected header assisted by Gareth Bale to give Real a 3-0 lead and Benzema returned the favour minutes later when he flicked on a cross for Bale to sweep home a volley.

"He is a great coach, we now have more confidence and we are going to compete".

Kemp accused Democrats on Sunday of trying to hack voter registration systems, without offering any supporting evidence. Many Georgia voters from both parties on Tuesday said racial politics was not a deciding factor in this election.

Solari handed Javi Sanchez and Vinicius Junior Champions League debuts in place of Ramos and Benzema and the Brazilian marked the occasion by setting up Kroos for a fine goal.

Plzen are now unable to finish in the top two spots, leaving just CSKA Moscow - five points worse off - in pursuit of Madrid and Roma with two games to go.

Real Madrid signed Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea in the summer after the Belgium worldwide had a sensational World Cup in Russian Federation with his national team.

Bale headed wide from close range and then saw his long-range shot kept out by Hruska while the Plzen defence cleared the ball away from Benzema hungry for a rebound.

Lucas Vazquez was denied by a contentious offside decision and Bale rattled the upright in stoppage time as Madrid cantered to three important points. "The man who asks that doesn't know Madrid, no?"

In their next Champions League game, Real face Roma in Rome on Nov 27.
