Benzema On The Double

Karim Benzema struck a second-half brace to help Real Madrid defeat Los Angeles Galaxy 3-1 in the inaugural Guinness International Champions Cup on Thursday.

Benzema joined Angel Di Maria on the scoresheet, while Jose Villarreal netted for the outclassed Major League Soccer hosts.

In other action, Chelsea beat Inter Milan 2-0, with Oscar and Eden Hazard doing the damage for the Blues in Indianapolis.

Real dominated their contest from the outset, with Cristiano Ronaldo threatening on numerous occasions in the opening stanza.

The former World Player of the Year contributed to the opening goal of the game, as he beat three defenders before teeing up Di Maria, who made no mistake.

Ronaldo exited the match at half-time, with Benzema taking the superstar's place.

The Frenchman made an immediate impact, as he fired past Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Rowe six minutes after his introduction after being put into space by Isco.

Villarreal pulled one back for the home side in the 63rd minute, as he took two touches before shooting past Real keeper Diego Lopez.

Benzema, however, had the last say when he converted Di Maria's cross in the 74th minute, with Galaxy unable to find a way back.
