Ancelotti’s team overwhelms the Moldovans with goals from Alaba, Kroos and Benzema, winning the second round with one round to spare. The Nerazzurri also qualified, who on 7 December in Madrid will compete for the first place in the group against the Blancos
Minimum effort and maximum yield for Ancelotti’s Blancos, who conquer the Tiraspol Arena with three goals in ease and a performance in savings. The people of Madrid just need a few gusts and two billiards hits that the Moldovans already sentenced in the first 45 ‘. The rest is done by the usual Benzema, who places the icing on the cake for the 3-0 final with which Real Madrid breaks the pass for the round of 16 arm in arm with Inter (now unattainable by the Moldovans who are four points behind). Next 7 December in Madrid the match against the Nerazzurri that holds the primacy of group D.
Walk in ease
In addition to the qualification to be put in the safe, Ancelotti’s troops also had the moral duty to avenge the sensational home knockout of the first leg. That’s why Ancelotti chose the best possible line-up for the occasion. Beyond an aggressive start with the usual Bruno Souza, Cristiano and Addo, also in evidence tonight, the Madrid team had a rather easy life managing to keep the pace low and making the most of the opportunities created. After a first threat from Rodrygo and a goal disallowed in Benzema for a slight offside, Alaba’s perfect left-footed left paved the way for the Blancos at exactly half an hour. Then, just a moment before going to rest, a surgical blow from distance from Kroos bounced over the line after hitting under the crossbar. Game substantially archived.
With the result achieved, the Blancos have entered the automatic pilot continuing to pack occasions. Taking advantage of the second after returning to the field, at 56 ‘, could only be Benzema, evidently eager to put his signature: quick control in the central area and precise conclusion to the right of Athanasiadis for Etoile, who thus reached altitude five goals in as many Champions League matches (to which must be added the 10 scored in 12 appearances in La Liga). Despite the news of the conviction in the first instance for “the Valbuena affair”, which arrived just in the day, the Frenchman became the protagonist of another performance to be framed, topped off by at least four other opportunities created for himself and his teammates. For the Moldovans, on the other hand, not even the satisfaction of the flag goal, denied in the 68th minute by a double intervention by Courtois and a post from Thill’s shot. The evening went so smoothly for the Blancos that Ancelotti was able to allow himself the luxury of saving the last half hour to three quarters of the starting defense by replacing Mendy, Alaba (out due to a suspected injury) and Carvajal. Because in the next ten days, before playing for the first place in Group D with Inter, Madrid have two crucial challenges at the top of the La Liga against Sevilla and Real Sociedad.
