Viktoria Plzen enters Tuesday's match looking for its first win in the Champions League this season.

The result keeps the Champions League winners in each of the last three seasons on course to make the last-16 of this year's competition, while Solari is now the first Madrid manager since the 1950s to win each of his first three games in charge, while keeping three clean sheets. Today we did very well, the players were fantastic.

"We came into the game fully focused and it showed", Solari said.

By surpassing 200 goals for Madrid, Benzema became just the seventh player to reach the total in the club's history, joining names like Cristiano Ronaldo, Raul and Alfredo Di Stefano. Once they play with this seriousness, commitment and wanting to score. "I am only thinking of the next game. For me the important thing always is winning".

Benzema doubled his tally and set up Gareth Bale in the space of 144 seconds towards the end of the first half, and Toni Kroos floated a handsome 67th-minute chip home to wrap up the win and leave Plzen playing exclusively for third place.

Pentagon balked at US troops building facilities for detained migrants
Around 900 troops have arrived at the US-Mexico border since the Trump administration announced the deployment on October 26. But on the campaign trail, Trump has painted a darker picture of the caravan without evidence, calling it an "invasion".

More shoddy defending from Plzen enabled Casemiro to glance Kroos' corner home, before Benzema took his tally for Madrid to 201 by nodding Bale's cushioned header past Hruska.

"Julen is a great coach but we are with Solari now, and playing with more confidence", Benzema said.

Real Madrid signed Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea in the summer after the Belgium worldwide had a sensational World Cup in Russian Federation with his national team.

Plzen, the reigning Czech champions, had two attempts on goal from long range in the second half, but Jan Kopic saw his effort stopped by Courtois and Patrik Hrosovsky, who scored for Plzen in their 2-1 loss in Madrid in October, fired wide.

Solari made it clear that goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who was relegated to the bench on Wednesday, has all his respect and admiration despite being replaced by Thibaut Courtois.
