Llorente made the first for Real Madrid when the game was just beginning, but the right club said "no". After a while El Shahat had a very clear answer when the clock struck 12 minutes: he escaped from the entire defense with the included goalkeeper but when he finished he appeared Sergio Ramos to save on the line.
However, a minute later, Modric opened the scoring with a goal from the area's crescent. E Vázquez made the second at 17, but the ball went very close to the right side of the Eisa goal.
Bale also had his chance at 20, with a left kick that Eisa covered well.
