Real Madrid's French forward Karim Benzema (C) celebrates his goal with teammates during the Spanish league football match between Girona FC and Real Madrid CF at the Montilivi stadium in Girona on August 26, 2018.

A second-half double from Karim Benzema helped Real Madrid to a 4-1 victory at Girona on Sunday and maintain their flawless La Liga start in the post-Cristiano Ronaldo era.

Los Blancos got off to the worst start as the home side broke the deadlock on 16 minutes as Borja Garcia dummied Nacho and Navas before slotting into the top corner.

Espanyol saw off Valencia thanks to two goals in seven second-half minutes.

"We have good goalkeepers and good solutions, we have to decide and take a good decision".

The hosts jumped out to an early lead through Borja Garcia, but would do themselves no favours in gifting Real a penalty on each side of halftime.

A foul inside the box forced the match official to point the spot for the second time in the game, and Karim Benzema stood forward to put his side in front on 52 minutes. Gareth Bale struck for the third score on the hour mark and then Benzema wrapped up the three points with a late goal.

Real made a change to keep their balance on the clash, with Luka Modric replacing Isco on 77 minutes. This time Benzema stepped up and slotted in the spot kick to make it 2-1 Real.
