Karim Benzema 'tricks Celta Vigo for full points

Madrid: Karim Benzema bagged a hat-trick and an assist as Real Madrid edged past 5-2 against Celta Vigo on the fourth matchday of La Liga. Debutant Eduardo Camavinga also found the net for the Los Blancos along with Vinicius Junior.

As good as the Real Madrid attack was, the shaky defence saw them concede through Santi Mina as early as the fourth minute before Benzema leveled it for the hosts at 20 minutes. The weakness of the defense was exposed for the second time as Franco Servi gave Celta the lead.

Six minutes into the second half Benzema headed back across the top right corner to bring Madrid back into the game before setting up Vinicius for a low finish giving the Blancos an upper hand.
Camavinga came in for Eden Hazard and in about six minutes the debutant found the net from a Luka Modric rebound. The last for the day was slotted in when Benzema himself scored from a spot-kick that was awarded to hosts after Denis Suarez accidentally trips Vinicius.

In other matches of the Atlético Madrid came from behind in the late minutes of the game to seal away three points against RCD Espanyol while Athletic Bilbao enjoyed a 2-0 victory over Mallorca.

An extra-time goal from Sergio Guardiola forced Levante to share points with Rayo Vallecano as Mikel Oyarzabal scores a brace to help Real Sociedad get better of Cadiz.
