Real Madrid beat Almeria on the road in the matchday 2 of the Spanish La Liga of the 2023/24 season. The match ended with a score of 1:3.
The hosts of the field unexpectedly took the lead in the third minute of the meeting - Sergio Arribas scored.
However, then the "creamy" managed to turn the tide of the game. In the 19th minute, the score was equalized by Real Madrid's summer newcomer Jude Bellingham.
Before the break, the Blancos could have put Toni Kroos ahead, but his goal was cancelled out due to a rule breach.
In the second half, Bellingham scored a double by scoring in the 60th minute from an assist from Kroos.
And in the 73rd minute, Jude added an assist to two goals. This time, the hosts' goal net was struck by Vinicius Júnior.
Ukrainian goalkeeper of "Real" Andriy Lunin came out in the starting line-up and played the full match.
Earlier, the main goalkeeper of the "cream" Thibaut Courtois was seriously injured and out for a long time. However, Lunin's permanent starting spot is by no means guaranteed, as the Royal Club have signed Chelsea star keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
For Real Madrid, this victory was the second in a row at the start of the new season of the Primera División. In the first round, Madrid with Lunin in the line-up confidently defeated Athletic Bilbao (0:2).
Carlo Ancelotti's team currently leads the La Liga standings with 6 points. "Almeria" occupies the last line with zero in the column of scoring points.
In the next round of the Spanish championship, the Creamers will play against Celta on August 25 away, and Almeria will face Cádiz a day later.
