La Liga round-up: Carlos Solar scores a hat-trick to give Real Madrid a 4-1 win over Valencia | Football news

Published on

Valencia forward Carlos Solar scored from the penalty spot after beating La Liga champions Real Madrid 4-1 in a thrilling match on Sunday.

Kareem Benzema put Madrid ahead with a powerful strike from outside the box, with Valencia equalizing, the first of Solar’s three penalties after an extraordinary event.

When he saw Solar on his spot kick saved by Thibaut Courtois, he hit the post on the rebound, and teammate Younus Moosa put the loose ball into the net, after a VAR review showed that the goal had been deflected into the area.

Ordered to take again, Solar made no mistake on the second attempt.

Valencia took the lead halfway through a goal by Rafael Varane, who unknowingly sent the ball over the head and over the line, just minutes after another VAR review.

At the start of the second period, Valencia teenager Lee Kang-in hit a third but Courtois returned his shot to the post.

Earlier, Real Sociedad beat unrecognized Granada 2-0 to advance to the top of La Liga.

Officials rejected visitors’ attempts to postpone the game due to corona virus cases, which forced them to make nine changes from last week’s 1-1 draw with Levante, starting with five players aged 20 and under.

Sociedad took the lead through left-back Nacho Montreal in the first half, but Michael O’Reilly doubled their lead with a penalty five minutes later.

In the second half, Granada’s 18 – year – old keeper Angel Jimenez was saved by Brazilian forward Willian Jose. Sociedad finished the game with 10 men. Defender Robin Le Normand was shown a red card in the 86th minute.

Although Granada won a penalty in extra time, Alex Remi denied a superb save to Darwin Machis and Basquiat celebrated their fifth consecutive La Liga victory.
