Dani Carvajal backs sacked Julen Lopetegui as best coach he's ever had

Real Madrid signed Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea in the summer after the Belgium global had a sensational World Cup in Russian Federation with his national team.

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

Benzema headed a second from close range before Gareth Bale rounded off the half with a left-footed strike. "Sometimes, (Petr) Cech played in the league and me in Europe".

Santiago Solari has won both of his games as Real Madrid manager since taking over from Julen Lopetegui. Bale getting a first goal in eight games added to a sense that things are now clicking under still interim coach Santi Solari.

Tomas Chory was denied a late consolation by a Courtois save, shortly before Bale sent a first-time shot against the bar, ensuring that Solari's men had a clean sheet to go with their third successive win under the stand-in boss.

Solari made it clear that goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who was relegated to the bench on Wednesday, has all his respect and admiration despite being replaced by Thibaut Courtois.

MF Casemiro, 6 - Another game in which the holding midfielder's aerial threat at set-pieces was more useful to his team than his covering of opposition counter-attacks. "Every game is different and you have to continue working with humility, sacrifice and ambition in front of goal and think about the next game".

Toni Kroos completed the scoring in the 67th minute when he cooly chipped over the keeper after a counter-attack involving Brazilian substitute Vinicius on his Champions League debut. It was a different rotation, not the championship for one and the Cup and the Champions League for the other.

DF Sergio Ramos, 5 - Very fortunate not to be sent off at 0-0 after he drew blood from the nose of Plzen's Milan Havel with his elbow, which is not the type of leadership Madrid need at the moment.

"He is a great coach, we now have more confidence and we are going to compete".
