Valencia have actually played well tonight and will be annoyed that their goal was cancelled out by VAR, but there was an inevitability about Real Madrid scoring in the second half.
Real have pinned their opponents back, but Zidane had set his team up in a way that meant Hazard and Benzema would need to carry the goal threat.

Valencia have shown enough to demonstrate that they could still find a way back into the game, so Real will be hoping for a second to kill this game off.
