The Whites achieved a goal-fest against Millonarios with a hat-trick from Kaká, braces from Callejón and Morata and a goal from Benzema
Before there were even five minutes on the clock along came the third warning, this time even closer to going in. A cross shot from Higuaín got past Delgado but hit the crossbar. Morata and Callejón also joined in, enjoying attempts at goal. The former's interception of Torres in the 7th was worthy of more but his shot was met by Franco, and the latter's one-on-one after an excellent pass from Özil went to Delgado's gloves in the 12th. Such was the lead up to the match's opening goal. Higuaín overcame the player marking him with a step-over in the left wing, he entered the area, observed Kaká's arrival and sent him a left-footed pass so that the Brazilian could put their first goal on the scoreboard in the 14th.
One of this sport's maxims was fulfilled. Once the first goal was netted they just kept coming... four more before half-time. Callejón scored the second, making the most of an excellent assist from Higuaín in the 23rd. The Argentinian, who was captain, had set up the first two goals of the match. A marvellous play two minutes later was worthy of a better finish. The author of the second goal, Özil, Higuaín and Kaká all had a hand and Callejón shot from a volley. The visiting keeper's save was in keeping with the spectacular combination.
He wasn't able to repeat the performance with the other three goals that arrived before the end of the first half. Morata scored the third and fourth in the 32nd and 36th. For his first goal he kept a cool head, enduring the player marking him and defeating Delgado. He finished the brace with a shot across goal after a stepover from Kaká and the subsequent assist from the player chosen as Man of the Match. It was the Brazilian himself who scored the fifth in the 38th, cleverly using his back to get in before Lewis Ochoa, who tried to clear the ball from the goal line. The total came to five goals in a first half to remember.
The masterclass continued in the second half
Benzema, Modric, Fabinho and Carvalho substituted Morata, Nacho, Varane and Higuaín at half-time and the local team's fluidity of play didn't change a bit. The Whites continued to enjoy opportunities at goal and their dominance led to the sixth goal of the match, the third in Kaká's personal tally. Coentrão was knocked over by Delgado in the area and the Brazilian was responsible for taking the penalty shot in the 60th.
Eight minutes later Callejón scored his second, the seventh of the match. After a through ball from Benzema up the right wing and a cross from the French player to just outside the area, Álex cleverly saw the Real Madrid ‘21’ arrive and surprised the visitors' defence letting the ball continue past him. The academy player finished off the play, shooting into the net. It wasn't the last goal of the night. That was scored by Benzema with a shot across goal in the 79th to conclude the goal-fest and the best possible tribute to Alfredo Di Stéfano.
