We all know Chinese fans are very loyal to Real Madrid and to prove that, more than 50.000 people showed up to watch Guangzhou Evergrande playing against the Merengues. José Mourinho was aware of the importance of this game in terms of marketing, so he presented a very strong line-up, with Cristiano Ronaldo decided to put on a good show. Just 6 minutes after the game started, the first goal appeared by Khedira and it was his first strike since he signed for Real Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo and his team mates had a great performance and goals happened naturally. Around the 30th minute, Ozil scored the 2nd goal after a good combination with Sami Khedira. Benzema also scored in the first half, around the 38th minute, making it 0-3 before the halftime. The second half started and only 3 minutes after, Benzema once again, put the ball on the back of the net. However, the biggest moment of the game happened around the 54th minute, when Cristiano Ronaldo got assisted by Callejón and scored a tremendous goal with a backheel touch. A couple minutes later, José Mourinho decided to rotate almost the entire team and the game lost a bit of rhythm. Jese and Di Maria still had time to make a goal each, as well as Yang from Guangzhou Evergrande, who managed to put the final score to 1-7.
