Football Real Madrid blows past the low point Elche

(Reuters) – Federico Valverde, Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio gave Real Madrid a comfortable 3-0 win at bottom side Elche in LaLiga on Wednesday and the league leaders also had three goals disallowed by VAR for offside in the build-up.

Real Madrid top the table on 28 points, six ahead of second-placed Barcelona, ​​who have a game in hand and host Villarreal on Thursday.

In-form Valverde gave Real the lead in the 11th minute with a brilliant technical shot from the edge of the box.

The champions dominated the game throughout, creating multiple chances alongside the three tries ruled out, one by David Alaba and two by Benzema.

Benzema extended Real’s lead in the 75th minute after a clean interaction with Rodrygo, who assisted the Ballon D’Or winner with a skillful back-heel pass.

Substitute Asensio added the third goal with a minute remaining, firing in from close range following a Rodrygo cross.
