Dani Carvajal featured on the left of the back line as Solari looked to rest Sergio Reguilon and Marcelo.

After the interval, Isco joined Asensio in hitting a double - netting either side of Vinicius Junior getting in on the act, with Isco's first a sublime strike from 25 yards that drew warm applause from Solari.

"I do not believe in anyone being indispensable, neither now, nor when I played", declared the Madrid boss, after being pressed on the reason for the continued absence of Spaniard Isco.

Madrid went into halftime with a three-goal lead after Marco Asensio scored twice in three minutes and debutant Javi Sanchez also got on the scoresheet late in the half. Here are the talking points from the game. Players need to give the best of themselves to be available and to then do the best possible.

The soon returning Brazilian would find it hard to break back into the team, as Llorente started his third successive game, completing a good 45 before being subbed off by Solari, who must've had the clash against Huesca in mind.
