Real Madrid 2-1 AS Roma: The result of the match was put beyond all doubt after just a quarter of an hour as Gareth Bale’s clever finish past Olsen doubled the advantage given to Real by Asensio after just two minutes. From there, Real Madrid played to their European Cup-winning standard, dominating the flow of play and efficiently and effectively avoiding Roma’s press. Their use of occasional long-balls to bypass the midfield created variation and irregularity which Roma could not defend.
This is one of the final matches of the series of friendlies and it will feature two squads that split their first two matches of the event.
Real Madrid lost to Manchester United 2-1 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami in its first match of the ICC, and then picked up a 3-1 victory over Juventus at FedExField.
Roma also opened the ICC with a lost as it saw Tottenham run away with a 4-1 win in San Diego, but the Italian squad responded with a 4-2 victory over Barcelona at AT&T Stadium.
Next up for Real Madrid is a European Super Cup Derby against Atletico Madrid next Wednesday in Tallinn. Roma will next be in action on the 19th of August, as they start their Serie A campaign away against Torino.
