Kroos’ shot was blocked by defender Garcia’s outstretched foot, and Rodrigo took advantage of the opportunity to score the winning goal. Real Madrid coach Ancelotti replaced Rodrygo with Asensio in the 89th minute, allowing him to accept the warm cheers of the Real Madrid fans.

Although his performance is not as dazzling as the “Great Sage”, his performance is becoming more and more important to Real Madrid.
