The second half would be a shock for both teams who, despite the dynamism of the match, could not change the score. But the goal scorer Karim Benzema would appear, who with a masterful pass from Rodrygo would end up putting an unstoppable ball close to the goal.
In the 90′ + 2′ minute, Madrid rushed towards Espanyol’s goal, when it was Ceballos’ goal kick, he was fouled by the goalkeeper, the action was finished by Rodrygo, putting the ball but offside.
