Real Madrid got back on track in the Champions League with a comfortable win at 10 man Inter Milan, who had Arturo Vidal sent off for a moment of madness.

Partido correspondiente a la 4ª jornada de la fase de grupos de la Champions League disputado en el estadio de San Siro a puerta cerrada. Antes del encuentro se guardó un minuto de silencio en memoria de Diego Armando Maradona.
Goals from Eden Hazard and Rodrygo Goes helped Madrid move second in the group with seven points from four games, one behind leaders Borussia Monchengladbach.
Inter, now, languish bottom on two points behind Shakhtar Donetsk, on four points.
Los Blancos took the lead early on when Nacho was fouled in the box and Eden Hazard dispatched the penalty, with no Sergio Ramos or Karim Benzema on the pitch to take it from him.
Zidane, who picked the same team that drew 1-1 with Villarreal at the weekend, will have been pleased with his team’s first half display, even though they couldn’t add to the goal.
Ferland Mendy crossed when he should have shot and Lucas Vazquez hit the post with a low drive from distance.
Former Barcelona Arturo Vidal was then sent off in ridiculous fashion. The Chilean thought he had been fouled by Raphael Varane in the box and remonstrated with referee Anthony Taylor, who booked him. Vidal kept arguing and the referee gave him another yellow card and sent him off.
Real Madrid doubled their lead after the break with substitute Rodrygo firing home at the back post after a nice cross from Vazquez, and that was more or less that against Antonio Conte’s toothless side.
