Real Madrid held by Club America in US friendly
Real Madrid and Club América played a wonderfully entertaining match late on Tuesday night in San Francisco
Karim Benzema and Eden Hazard were amongst the goals as Los Blancos survived a scare in the Pre-Season friendly against the Liga MX side.
Los Blancos entered the contest off the back of a 1-0 loss to Barcelona on Saturday
while America had taken on Chelsea and Manchester City in friendlies this summer suffering 2-1 defeats in both fixtures

Amazingly, it was Club América that struck first, with Henry Martín receiving the ball near the spot and firing past Andriy Lunin less than five minutes into the contest.
In typical fashion, it was Karim Benzema who leveled for Madrid, playing a beautiful one-two with Marco Asensio and curling the ball past Memo Ochoa into the bottom corner.
Early in the second half, Eden Hazard would put Real Madrid in front from the penalty spot after Lucas Vázquez was taken down in the area.
