We could say the season just started for Real Madrid with their 5-0 thrashing of Real betis. Madrid fans will be well pleased after last weeks poor performance from the galaticos.
Bale opened the scoring with an unmarked header two minutes into the match, and James doubled the advantage on a free kick from a tight angle shortly before half-time. Benzeama made it 3, James made it 4 again and Bale completed his brace in the 89th min to give Real a convincing win.
If this strike force continues with CR7 not even yet on the scoring sheet, we might as well be looking at a stronger Real under Rafael Benitez this season. In other reports, Barcelona managed another scrappy 1-0 win with Vermelean getting the only goal of their match.
