The Basques took the lead after 18 minutes when Raul Garcia scored after a bad pass by Lucas Vazquez. On 38 minutes, Lucas Vazquez gave away a penalty and Raul Garcia made no mistake from 12 yards. Real Madrid fought back in the latter stages of the second half and Karim Benzema scored in the 73rd minute after VAR adjudged him to be just onside.
