Spanish La Liga: Kroos scores late to give Los Blancos narrow win


08-28-2016 15:48 BJT

Over to Spain where Champions League winners Real Madrid were at home for the first time where they welcomed Celta Vigo to the Santiago Bernabeu. The hosts who were still without Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and Isco, would struggle to create quality chances and the close match would come down to a late blast from Toni Kroos allowing pundits around the world to use the all-too obvious term, Kroos missile.

This is the second game of Real's domestic campaign and Alvaro Morata scores his first goal since returning from Juventus to break the deadlock on the hour.

In the 67th minute, Celta would level following a crisp move between Daniel Wass and Fabian Orellana, with the latter sending a high shot beyond Casilla.

Kroos then finishes off substitute James Rodriguez's cut-back with a low drive from the edge of the area in the 81st minute, giving Real six points from their two league games this season.
