Real Madrid’s resounding victory at Rabat’s Prince Moulay Abdellah stadium was their second of the season, following their European Super Cup triumph in August.
Real Madrid won the Club World Cup for a record fifth time on Saturday in Morocco, defeating Al Hilal 5-3. Vinicius Junior and Fede Valverde each scored twice, and Karim Benzema also scored on his comeback from injury in Real Madrid’s stunning victory over their Saudi Arabian opponents. Carlo Ancelotti’s team, which won the Champions League last season, had far too much attacking talent for their opponents to handle.
After winning the European Super Cup in August, Madrid’s emphatic victory at Rabat’s Prince Moulay Abdellah stadium secured their second piece of silverware of the season.
It also provided welcome respite from their La Liga campaign, in which they are currently eight points behind rivals Barcelona, who also defeated them in the Spanish Super Cup final in January.
Madrid also won three Intercontinental Cups (a match between European and South American champions that merged with the Club World Cup in 2005).
