Real Madrid proved too strong for Juventus in the International Champions Cup, as they romped to a 3-1 win on Saturday.

Real Madrid stars are not pleased with the club allowing Sergio Ramos to extend his summer break for the second year in a row.

Asensio entered the game at the start of the second half and scored less than two minutes in before adding another in the 56th minute.

Dani Ceballos was a leader in the midfield, giving the coach something else to shout about against Juventus in their International Champions Cup match.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor will make his competitive debut on August 18 when Juventus kick off their Serie A title defence away to Chievo.

According to reports from Don Balon, the likes of Luka Modric, Keylor Navas, Marcelo and Andre Gomes have been linked with a potential move to the Serie A. However, it looks like this time Ronaldo has recommended that Juventus sign Keylor Navas, with the Costa-Rican global set for a move away from the Bernabeu.

But the Portuguese superstar will miss the match in the USA after being left at home to recover from the World Cup.

Bale hit a stunning shot from 20 yards out in the 39th minute to level the score at 1-1 in the front of the crowd of 60,000 at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.

Celades played at Real Madrid for four seasons and made 101 appearances.

Asensio subbed in after half-time and wasted no time getting on the board.

Despite naming a strong starting XI featuring Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema, Madrid fell behind in the 12th minute when Carvajal turned Joao Cancelo's cross from the left past the outstretched Keylor Navas and into his own net. Asensio's shot deflected off the right arm of Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and trickled into the net.

In earlier matches, Juventus beat Bayern Munich, Benfica and the Major League Soccer All-Stars.
