Benzema taking charge of Solari’s revamped Real Madrid

Benzema taking charge of Solari’s revamped Real Madrid

The three points keep Madrid sixth in the La Liga table, but they are now just four points behind leaders Barcelona, who were shocked 4-3 by Real Betis at the Camp Nou earlier on Sunday.

Dani Ceballos then added a fourth goal for Madrid from long range before Brais Mendez scored Celta's second.

With experience and attractive goals, Karim Benzema has been leading the way for Real Madrid as it continues to impress under coach Santiago Solari.

Real Madrid registered Santiago Solari as its coach on Monday because Spanish league regulations prohibit a club from having an interim coach for more than two weeks.

The blasts occurred near the Sahafi hotel and Criminal Investigation Division police headquarters. Guards at Hotel Sahafi and CID officers opened fire after the blasts, police added.


Solari, who spent five years playing for Real, was promoted from his role in charge of Castilla, the clubs B team, after Lopetegui had overseen a miserable run that included just one victory in seven games.

Solari appears to have earned himself the right to take charge of the team for the remainder of the season, at which point Madrid will nearly certainly dive back into the managerial market in search of a new long-term boss. Three matches, three wins, eleven goals scored and none conceded.

"The important thing is to do everything for the good of the team and Real Madrid. I can only see as far as the next link in the chain", Solari said after Wednesday's 5-0 win at Viktoria Plzen.

According to Jugones presenter Josep Pedrerol, the club have complete in the man who been the team's interim coach for the past two weeks and are set to confirm that he will continue in the post until the end of the season - and the next.

There is some good news for Madrid fans, however, as forward Mariano Diaz is expected to return after the break in domestic fixtures as the Blancos look to continue their resurgence following the sacking of Julen Lopetegui.

"Gareth made a massive effort, his ankle was very swollen", Solari said.

"What I can say is that we are very happy (with Solari)", said Emilio Butragueno, Madrid's director of institutional relations.

Butragueno told Movistar+: "There is no doubt that he came at a very particular moment and has been able to achieve very good results". "Celta played very aggressively, on the edge of the rules".
