On Tuesday night at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium without Casimiro, Real won the La Liga match 3-1. After they went ahead with a Tony Cross target, Ander Kapa equalized. The last two goals were scored by Karim Benzema for the hosts.


True, who stumbled one by one on the wall, is having a very nice time now. In all the tournaments, in the last 10 days, they have achieved 100 percent success in four matches. They have scored six goals and digested one at this point.


It was a promising start for Bilbao against Real, who had been assured of two great victories in the face of severe criticism. They lost in the 14th minute to Raul Garcia, however.


Twice within the first four minutes, Bilbao breached the opponent's strong defense and spread terror. In the thirteenth minute, the team could have gone ahead, but after entering the D-box, Inaki Williams was frustrated with the missed shot.


In the 14th minute, Garcia saw a second yellow card for fouling Tony Cruz from behind outside the D-box of his opponent. The Spanish midfielder's first midfield yellow card five minutes ago was stupid as well.


Vinicius Jr. should have had an 18th minute diving card. In the byline, the Bilbao midfielder stepped up to block him; but did not strike, Brazilian fell forward still.


Six minutes later, a ball in the D-box blocked Benzema's shot, cutting one off and missing another one. With that ball, he took a missed shot and came back after recovering from the injury.


Real kept the pressure on the ball most of the time, but could not create any chances. He took eight shots in the first 40 minutes but none of them were on target.


But then the team got two great chances in the space of two minutes. Goalkeeper Unai Simon stands as a wall in front of Vinicius's cross on Luka Madrich's cross from the left. Valverde missed the second chance with a missed shot.


Shortly before the break, Cruz, who has played well in the last few matches, scored a goal. The German midfielder scored his first goal of the match in the first minute of added time with a powerful shot from 22 yards out after receiving a cutback from Vinicius from the D-box.


The visitors equalized with a counter attack in the seventh minute of the second half. Thibaut Courtois had blocked Ander Coppa's first attempt, but Spanish defender Capa scored the goal with a cold head on the return ball. Before his second shot, Varane and Ramos had time to clear the ball; nobody could though.


Shortly after the counter-attack, Vinicius sent the ball into the net; the linesman, however, raised the offside flag. In the 64th minute, they did not have to turn away.


Benzema took the lead again after a short corner with a wide cross from Dani Carvajal's six-yard box on the right.


Bilbao, which kept Real at home in a goalless draw last December, at times expected a counter-attack at the end. They almost stopped the opponent in the added time, but the powerful shot of Mikel Vesgar was blocked with great speed and Cortoia ensured the team's victory.


From there, with the ball extended by Madrich in the counter-attack, Benzema made the scoreline 3-1. This is the French forward's sixth tournament goal, 9 in all competitions in the last 9 matches.


With six wins and two draws, Sociedad and Atletico Madrid have 26 points from 13 matches. However, Atletico have played less than two matches.


With 16 points in 11 matches, Barcelona is number eight. Bilbao is 13th with 14 points in 13 games.
