CSKA players did not give up and ran to win back the advantage that the opponent had acquired.

Georgy Shchennikov had the best moment in the “army team” in the first half, the hosts’ defender was the first on the ball after the rebound and hit his head on the empty goal frame, only the CSKA player let down the accuracy and the ball went higher. Completely different hosts started the second half of the match, Arnor Sigurdsson took the ball in the penalty area and shot from a penalty spot into the corner of the gate of the guests – 1:1 in the 50th minute. The Icelander, at that time, was a hero, his compatriot Hordur Magnusson received a completely different title six minutes later, the defender clearly did not keep up with the opponent’s player and earned a second yellow card for a foul near his own penalty area. The guests almost instantly realized their numerical advantage and took the lead in the 59th minute, the defenders missed Lorenzo Pellegrini, who handled the ball and shot Igor Akinfeev. Further events on the field were in favor of the Italian team, but there was no particular activity on the part of the hosts – 1:2.

The Red-Blues did not sit on the defensive and almost opened the scoring in the ninth minute, Patrik Groshovsky shot into the goalkeeper’s area, and one of the Real Madrid players sent the ball into the crossbar. The answer from the guests was more convincing, Karim Benzema skillfully figured out the defenders and shot past the goalkeeper, the Frenchman opened the scoring in the 21st minute. It took only two minutes for the Spanish team to double their advantage, Casemiro successfully played with his head and closed the feed from the corner – 0:2. Victoria’s players were barely noticeable on the football field, Real controlled the situation and in the 37th minute Benzema scored another goal, the striker scored with a header from a few meters from the goal line. Madrid’s fourth ball came three minutes after the previous one, this time Benzema acted as an assistant, the striker threw the ball under the blow of Gareth Bale, and the Welshman increased his team’s lead with a one-toucher. The second half turned out to be less interesting in terms of goals scored. Victoria failed to change the situation on the field and conceded the fifth ball in the 67th minute, Tony Kross threw the goalkeeper over and set the final score – 0:5 in favor of Real Madrid.
