  • Dani Carvajal Julen Lopetegui Real Madrid 2018-19

Since the departure of Lopetegui, Real have somewhat steadied the ship with the installation of former player and Castilla coach Santiago Solari, who has so far overseen victories against UD Melilla in the Copa del Rey and Valladolid over the weekend.

Champions League - Follow the Football match between Viktoria Plzen and Real Madrid live with Eurosport.

"We came into the game fully focused and it showed", Solari said.

Los Blancos narrowly escaped with a 2-1 victory against Plzen a few weeks ago on matchday 3 of the Champions League and will be looking to find a way to increase their goal scoring production and return to the form that has seen them win the last three editions of the Champions League.

Plzen are now unable to finish in the top two spots, leaving just CSKA Moscow - five points worse off - in pursuit of Madrid and Roma with two games to go.

Karim Benzema has scored his 200th goal for Real Madrid.

Madrid were dominate throughout and Toni Kroos added an impressive fifth after the interval when he chipped goalkeeper from inside the area.

"It was an important night for us", Casemiro said.

"On other days we created chances like tonight but didn't take them".

'Solari was also a Real Madrid player and he knows a lot about the game.

What made the opening goal for Benzema in the 20th-minute special was not only the individual effort from the Frenchman to sneak his way past two Plzen defenders, but that it was his 200th goal with Los Blancos since joining way back in 2009. The Czech team tied CSKA Moscow on September 19, but then suffered a blowout loss to Roma on October 2, falling 5-0, before defeat at the Bernabeu.
