Benzema opened the scoring in the 20th minute when he beat two defenders before slipping a shot through the legs of Plzen goalkeeper Ales Hruska. Casemiro doubled the lead three minutes later when the Brazilian outjumped his marker and headed home from a corner. With two games remaining in Group G Real Madrid are in second spot, level on nine points with AS Roma who beat CSKA Moscow 2-1. Real had an early scare in the 10th minute when Patrik Hrosovsky's cross cannoned off Nacho and hit the woodwork. Madrid beat Plzen 2-1 at home last month 2-1 with Julen Lopetegui at the helm before the former coach was sacked three months into his first season in charge after Real were thrashed by arch-rivals Barcelona.
