Highlight: Girona 1 – 4 Real Madrid (La Liga Goals & Highlights) Download Mp4
Girona opened the scoring in the first half but conceded two penalties as Real Madrid eased to a 4-1 win in LaLiga on Sunday.
Real Madrid benefited from two penalties as they came from behind to beat Girona 4-1 on Sunday, while Gareth Bale maintained his hot goalscoring form.
Madrid suffered their first away defeat of the 2017-18 season at Montilivi and it looked set to be another uncomfortable outing when Borja Garcia gave the home side the lead after 16 minutes.
But Madrid turned the scoreline on its head with the help of careless tackles from Marc Muniesa and Pere Pons, allowing Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema to convert a spot-kick apiece either side of the break.
Bale added a third in the 59th minute, with Benzema making absolutely sure of the win with a goal that puts Madrid above rivals Barcelona after two matches of the LaLiga campaign.
It was Madrid who made the early running, with Benzema finding the net after eight minutes only to be denied by the offside flag.
Isco could not sort his feet out in time to apply the finish to a squared Marco Asensio pass and Girona punished the visitors for their profligacy with the opening goal.
Anthony Lozano’s shot was blocked in the box, but the ball fell kindly for Garcia, who kept his cool to turn onto his right foot and fire high into Keylor Navas’ net.
But the home side threw away their advantage six minutes from the break, Muniesa bringing down Asensio – who was running away from goal – inside the penalty area.
