Real Madrid Too Much For Galaxy In Guinness International Champions Cup

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Karim Benzema scored a pair of second-half goals to lead Spanish soccer power Real Madrid to a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer on Thursday night.

The match was the first for both teams in the inaugural Guinness International Champions Cup tournament, which features six other teams from Europe.

Midfielder Angel DiMaria took a pass from former FIFA World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo, who’d gotten past three defenders, and scored the game’s first goal. Di Maria later added an assist.

Real Madrid was too talented for the Galaxy, as Ronaldo had multiple chances to score early in the match. A cross from DiMaria found Ronaldo in the sixth minute, and his shot hit the top of the goal and caromed away.
