Real Madrid Extend Unbeaten Run To 36 Games

Real Madrid extended their unbeaten run to 36 games by beating Club America 2-0 to reach the Fifa Club World Cup final against Kashima Antlers on Sunday.

Karim Benzema gave the European champions the lead with a clipped finish after a Toni Kroos pass.

Cristiano Ronaldo sealed the win – and a place in Sunday’s final against Kashima Antlers – by drilling a second in added time amid some confusion.

Referee Enrique Caceres briefly asked for a video assistant consultation before allowing the goal to stand.

This year’s Club World Cup is the first tournament to use video assistant referees. A pitchside monitor is available to referees to review decisions.

However, Caceres did not view the incident on the monitor before restarting the game and awarding the goal.
