Real Madrid continue to enjoy winning ways in their domestic season as they await the start of the Champions League campaign that will see them face a showdown with Juventus.
They have now been victorious in all three of their games in La Liga so far, and today’s win against Athletic Bilbao was the most convincing yet.
Los Blancos ran out 3-1 winners at the Bernabeu against Fernando Llorente’s former club, with new acquisition Isco again proving himself as one of the biggest talents in world football after netting the first and last of his team’s goals.
The scorer of the second goal, meanwhile, was a player whose ability has been firmly beyond doubt for many years now: Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Basque side did get one back late on through Ibai Gomez, but it was a comfortable win in the end for the home team.
The fortunes of another of the Bianconeri’s Group B rivals in the Champions League, Galatasaray, did not manage to reach the heights of Real Madrid this weekend: Fatih Terim’s men were held to a goalless draw by Eskisehirspor on Friday evening.
FC Copenhagen on the other hand have enjoyed a very positive Sunday, turning around what had previously been an underachieving campaign so far with a resounding 4-1 win away at Viborg thanks to goals from Claudemir, Olof Mellberg (a Bianconeri player between 2008 and 2009), Marvin Pourie and Fanendo Adi.
