Real Madrid consolidated its position at the top of the Spanish Football League by defeating its guest Valencia 4-1 on Saturday in the 20th stage of the competition.
And at the Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid regained its balance after losing the last round at Getafe with a 1-0 goal.
Real Madrid owes this victory to its two French stars, Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior, who scored the four goals with two goals each.
The first half ended with Real progressing with a goal scored by Benzema in the 43rd minute from a penalty kick that the team got as a result of a foul by Omar Alderetti against Casemiro.
Just 7 minutes after the start of the second half, Vinicius added the second goal for Real, after a break of individual skills, which ended with a powerful shot with his right foot into the net.
Vinicius returned and scored the third goal for the royal club and the second for him in the 61st minute with a header, after a cross from Marco Asensio that Valencia goalkeeper Jasper Cillesin failed to address.
