The Rodrygo-Vinicius duo paid off this Wednesday in the Champions League

Real Madrid beat Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 on Wednesday, taking a big step towards the knockout stages of the Champions League by establishing themselves as líder standout from group F.

The merengue team was the dominator of the match against Shakhtar, who only scared in the last minutes of the first half when the locals seemed to relax.

"Worthy paper"

“In some phases of the game we have been better, we were able to get into the game. We have played a decent role playing against the best in the world”, Shakhtar coach Igor Jovicevic said.

Real Madrid gave early warning with a shot from the outside by Fede Valverde that was saved by goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin (10).

Rodrygo opened the scoring by taking advantage of a bounced ball in the area to shoot close to the post (13).

Benzema was able to put the second in a half-turn shot that Trubin cleared (25), but the goal came in a new combination play between Rodrygo, Benzema and Valverde, which Vinicius culminated with a one-on-one shot with Trubin (28) .

Benzema had another great chance with a shot practically over the goal line, but was met by Trubin (35), who supported his team and prevented a bigger win.
