Real Madrid 2-0 Hercules

Real Madrid gained 3 points in the table today in their 2-nil win over Hercules. Benzema netted twice in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo. Nice. Since CR won’t be in the Champions League match against Olympique Lyon this week, it’s good to see Benzema getting plenty of goals and Real Madrid is doing fine without him. Things are looking hopeful for that match.
