Both Los Blancos goals in that game were inseparable from the role of Kroos who sent an assist for Karim Benzema’s opening goal and put his own name on the board.

Real Madrid’s opening goal, created in the 12th minute, was actually Benzema’s individual creation that poked in front of the box past Thierry Correia’s cross before unleashing a flat shot that goalkeeper Jaume Domenech could not reach.

However, as the goal came from Kroos’ pass, the 31-year-old German midfielder recorded one assist.

Kroos scored in the 42nd minute to double Real Madrid’s lead when he completed Lucas Vazquez’s pass with a measured shot from the edge of the box to head home Valencia’s goal.

In the 61st minute, Ferland Mendy had actually made it 2-0, but his goal was cancelled out by var who claimed the French defender was in an offside position when Vinicius Junior sent a pass.

Real Madrid, who continued to dominate the game, had another chance in the 75th minute, but this time Benzema’s shot was blocked by Domenech who reacted meticulously.

It was a winning streak for Real Madrid in the last three games, which secured them second place in the standings with a collection of 49 points after being overtaken by Barcelona (46) the day before.

Valencia (24), who have suffered their second defeat in the last four games, slumped to 13th, the Spanish League’s official website notes.

Both teams will feature for next Saturday’s game when Real Madrid travel to Valladolid’s headquarters and Valencia host Celta Vigo at the Mestalla. (sak/ant)
