Karim Benzema scores again as Los Blancos dominate at Rose Bowl

Real Madrid registered a dominating victory in their final preseason match with a comprehensive 2-0 victory over Italian giants Juventus

who were outplayed for large stretches by the European champions.

Los Merengues swarmed Juventus from the opening minute and did not relent on the pressure even after the entire squad was rotated in the second half.

It's a testament to the depth and culture of a squad that expects nothing less than winning every competition they're part of beginning with the Aug. 10 UEFA Super Cup.

In front of a sellout crowd of more than 93,000 Real Madrid showed off a fluid, flowing attack with Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr setting the tone with their interchanging and quick combinations

Vinicius earned a penalty on one of those lightning quick vertical attacks, and Benzema converted. Another clinical passing sequence led to the second goal by Marco Asensio in the second half.

It was a difficult night for Juventus, which looked disjointed and lacking ideas compared to Real Madrid.

Star forward Dusan Vlahovic got his first minutes of the preseason, but he was isolated and didn't impact the match.

Star signing Angel Di Maria was invisible, and starters Paul Pogba, Scsczny and Weston McKennie were absent due to injury.

Real Madrid's next match comes on Aug. 10 in Helsinki when they face Eintracht Frankfurt for the UEFA Super Cup

Juventus will play another friendly against Atletico Madrid before opening its Serie A season against Sassuolo on Aug. 15.
