The Blancos on Wednesday got off to a frustrating start at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, with Karim Benzema squandering two early chances on a shot over the crossbar and a bouncing header into the arms of goalkeeper Cuellar, reports Efe news.
Late in the first half, the Blancos' Alvaro Odriozola made his presence felt in the opposing goal area.
After a bizarre decision to pass instead of shoot in a one-on-one chance against Cuellar, he won a penalty just before first-half stoppage time when he was taken down by defender Rodri Tarin in the area.
That advantage did wonders for the home side's confidence and level of play in the second half.
Although Vinicius missed out on a couple of chances to score, Real Madrid's constant pressure led to the second goal in the 69th minute.
On the play, Benzema capitalized on a defensive error to take possession of the ball in the area and pass off to Vinicius, who set up Lucas Vasquez for an easy score into a virtually empty net.
The final goal came off the foot of Vinicius, who volleyed home a pass from Odriozola in the 77th minute.
