Los Merengues swarmed Juventus và applied pressure from the opening minute, và they did not relent even after the entire squad was rotated in the second half. It"s a testament lớn the depth and culture of a Real Madrid squad that expects nothing less than khổng lồ win every competition they"re part of this season beginning with the Aug. 10 UEFA Super Cup.

In front of a sellout crowd of more than 93,000 at the Rose Bowl, Real Madrid showed off a fluid, flowing attack with Karim Benzema & Vinicius Jr setting the tone with their interchanging và rapid-fire combinations. Vinicius earned a penalty on one of those lightning quick verticalattacks, and Benzema converted the spot kick. Another spectacular, clinicalpassing sequence led khổng lồ the second goal by Marco Asensio in the second half.

It was a difficult night for Juventus, who looked disjointed và lacking ideas compared lớn Real Madrid. Juve star forward Dusan Vlahovic got his first minutes of the preseason, but he was isolated & didn"t impact the match. Summer signing Angel Di Maria had his quietest preseason match with the summer load looking lượt thích it had caught up to him, & starters Paul Pogba, Wojciech Szczesny, and Weston McKennie were absent due to lớn different injuries.

Real Madrid"s next match comes on Aug. 10 in Helsinki when they face Eintracht Frankfurt for the UEFA Super Cup. Juventus will play another friendly against Atletico Madrid (Aug. 7) before opening its Serie A season against Sassuolo on Aug. 15.

Watch the highlights below:

Real Madrid are Karim Benzema dependent

When Real Madrid supporters see a performance like the one the team put forth against Juventus, they probably can"t help but get nervous thinking about life without Karim Benzema. He"s not only a goal scorer, he"s a catalyst for the attack. He comes back into midfield & sparks the attack with his passing combinations, dribbling moves và a vision that few talk about. He sets the tone, và Vinicius Jr is another player with Benzema on the field.

When he wasn"t on the field against Barcelona in the first preseason match, the difference on the field was clear. Và when he made his first appearance against Club America, the lift it gave the team was evident. But Benzema turns 35 in December and Father Time is undefeated. It"s not clear what Carlo Ancelotti will vì chưng without the best player in the world when injury or age begin to lớn weigh on him. Expect the Italian monster to manage his minutes carefully in 2022/23.

Juventus need help

While Paul Pogba, Weston McKennie, & Federico Chiesa would likely change the complexion of the Old Lady, you can"t help but come away from this match feeling lượt thích Juventus are still 3-4 players away from competing with the best clubs in Europe.

Their Brazilian full-backs are not the game-changers they once were, & they need a vibrant và healthy Juan Cuadrado & Angel Di Maria — at the same time — lớn have effective wing play. As it stands, they were a disjointed group against Real Madrid without any real coherent plan that was evident on the field. Instead, they reacted khổng lồ moments and that"s not always going khổng lồ work, especially without difference-makers lượt thích Pogba & Chiesa.

The Bianconeri may have spent big money to acquire Dusan Vlahovic last January, but he can"t help the club if he"s not provided service, & that much came through at the Rose Bowl, where he was out on an island. And when he did receive the ball, he had lớn go it alone against Real Madrid"s defense absent any real chemistry or combination play with fellow forwards Moise Kean và Di Maria.

Juventus need health & time.
