Real Madrid - Champions League - 7 November 2018

Dani Carvajal Julen Lopetegui Real Madrid 2018-19

Real Madrid's Keylor Navas during a training session ahead of the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League Group Stage match against CSKA Moscow.

Let the hype train roll on for Santiago Solari, who has righted the ship for Real Madird and continued his flying start as interim manager for Los Blancos with a 5-0 Champions League victory over Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday.

"The players deserve this and focus now switches to the next match".

Los Blancos narrowly escaped with a 2-1 victory against Plzen a few weeks ago on matchday 3 of the Champions League and will be looking to find a way to increase their goal scoring production and return to the form that has seen them win the last three editions of the Champions League.

Some of the old Real swagger was evident again, albeit against opponents who allowed the defending champions far too much space in the box and were horribly exposed from set-pieces. I'm very proud of my goals, it's a big tally and that gives me the confidence to go on and score more.

He got all the first-team reps and (was) really focused and was really in on it, and he played the game exactly like he practiced. But so far this season, when Seattle's ground game grinds to a halt, Wilson stops being as decisive and starts taking more sacks.

After accepting the Real Madrid vacancy in the summer, Lopetegui was famously relieved of his managerial duties as Spain coach just three days before their opening World Cup group match.

Benzema opened the scoring in the 20th minute when he beat two defenders before slipping a shot through the legs of Plzen goalkeeper Ales Hruska to claim his 200th goal for Real.

The Frenchman has not always been appreciated by Real's fans, and he said: "I play football to make history".

"Only he really knows his reasons for leaving and he decided it, but I'm happy for him and he deserves all the good things that happen to him".
