Real Madrid came back to haunt their old boss Jose Mourinho as they beat Chelsea 3-1 to claim the International Champions Cup at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami on Wednesday.
Marcelo put the Spaniards ahead but Ramires equalised moments later. Cristiano Ronaldo would then thump a free-kick past the goalkeeper before killing off the game after the break.
Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has taken over at the Santiago Bernabeu and handed Mourinho his first preseason defeat since the Portuguese moved back to London.
Madrid started the game brightly and saw Karim Benzema test Petr Cech in the third minute. It wouldn’t take too long for them to make the breakthrough though as Marcelo stormed in to slot a low finish in the 14th minute.
Against the run of play, the Blues would level matters as Ramires burst through the Madrid defence and lobbed a neat finish over Iker Casillas.
Los Blancos remained in control though and just past the half-hour mark Ronaldo smashed in a trademark free-kick to restore their advantage.
Chelsea came into the game with Frank Lampard working Iker Casillas with a fierce 20-yard drive before the Madrid stopper had to react quickly to prevent Romelu Lukaku from getting the rebound.
Eden Hazard then went close just after the break with a shot that drew a superb save from Casillas but Ronaldo would soon extend Madrid's advantage.
With 56 minutes gone, a defensive lapse allowed the Portugal international to power in a a header from an Isco cross.
The goal allowed Madrid to calm things down and they saw out the remainder of the game without too much trouble. In fact, they could have piled more misery on the Blues if Angel Di Maria had been more accurate while Alvaro Morata saw his late goal ruled out.
