Dani Carvajal: Julen Lopetegui is the best coach I’ve ever had

Despite never playing for Celta Vigo, the name of Santiago Solari represents something significant for the Galician club, after the current Real Madrid coach was responsible for delaying their Champions League dreams by nearly four years.

Real Madrid will look to continue their strong form under recently appointed interim manager Santiago Solari and take all three points when they make the return trip to the Doosan Arena to face Czech champions Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday evening in a critical Group G matchup in the Champions League.

"We came into the game fully focused and it showed", Solari said. "We have the players here to score lots of goals and that's what we did".

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

Casemiro guided a simple second into the corner of the net after being left totally unmarked from a corner, before Benzema helped himself to another in nearly identical circumstances, this time once picked out by Gareth Bale's headed pass four yards out.

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.

But any hopes Plzen harboured of a shock win were wiped out with two quickfire goals in the 21st and 23rd minutes.

The hosts were more lively after the break and managed a few shots on goal but could not find the quality they needed in the final third to chip away at Real's lead.

Julen Lopetegui may have been sacked by Spain and Real Madrid in the space of 139 days but an integral member of both squads is adamant that he "is the best coach he's ever had".
