The Belgium international’s two goals
could not rescue the result for Antonio
Conte’s men, who were three goals
down at half-time in their ICC clash
Marcelo and Mariano powered Real
Madrid to victory over Chelsea in
Saturday’s International Champions
Cup tie, despite a late double from Eden
Hazard.
The Brazilian left-back opened the
scoring after 19 minutes with a fine
blast from outside the box.
Seven minutes later, Marcelo was on
target once again, bursting into the
box, prising himself away from both
Gary Cahill and Nemanja Matic, before
rifling a low shot beyond Begovic at the
near post.
Mariano made it 3-0 before half time
with a thunderous shot from 25 yards
into the top corner.
Eden Hazard grabbed a consolation
goal for the Blues with a neat finish in
the 80th minute, but the game was
wrapped up by then, meaning Madrid
had nothing to fear when he netted his
second in the dying minutes,
