Real Madrid beat 5-3 Stade Reims in Santiago Bernabéu Trophy in the last friendly game of Los Blancos before starting La Liga the next Sunday against Real Sociedad. The supporters enjoyed a big party in the first game in their stadium in two months.
The party started with the captains Marcelo and Sergio Ramos offering the Champions League title and the European Supercup trophy with all the players in the pitch, including Cristiano Ronaldo or Pepe, who are still injured.
The trophy wanted to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first European Cup won against Stade Reims in 1956. Now, the French team is in second division and they were an easy rival for Los Blancos, who made a lot of tests before the start of the season.
James Rodríguez or Marco Asensio were in the starting eleven along with Álvaro Morata, all three protagonists in the last days for being linked to another team -the Colombian- or for their unveiling in the stadium.
The game was a party for the supporters in the Bernabéu stadium. Stade Reims scored first but Nacho and Sergio Ramos, both with a header, changed the result. Morata also scored his first goal at Bernabéu before the half time. In the second time, James Rodríguez and Mariano also joined the party, whereas the French team arrived very often in front of Casilla and score two other goals to finish the 5-3 score.
The next game for Real Madrid will be on Sunday against Real Sociedad in the start of La Liga. It will be a tougher match for Los Blancos, who cannot count with Cristiano Ronaldo or Benzema, both still injured. Zidane had good news in the trophy because Toni Kroos and Gareth Bale played finally their first minutes in the pre-season. Both should be ready for the weekend in a promising start of the season.
