Forgotten man Kaka was the star of the show for Real Madrid in their friendly against Millonarios last night, with the Brazilian superstar scoring a hat-trick in an emphatic 8-0 victory.
The result meant Los Blancos kept hold of the Santiago Bernabeu trophy for another year, with their Colombian opponents the latest victim in the annual event.
Whilst Jose Mourinho played a slightly weakened team, there was still plenty of talent on show in the capital, with Fabio Coentrao, Sami Khedira, Gonzalo Higuain, Mesut Ozil and Jose Maria Callejon also featuring. Cristiano Ronaldo did not play for the hosts.
Kaka opened the scoring with a fine finish after Higuain’s cut-back, before Callejon sent the keeper the wrong way to double the advantage. A quick-fire double from Alvaro Morata made it 4-0, and Kaka added fifth after just 38 minutes.
It was more of the same in the second period, with Luka Modric and Karim benzema introduced into the action. It was Kaka who grabbed the headlines however, completing his treble from the penalty spot after a foul on Portuguese defender Coentrao.
Callejon added his second on 68 minutes after some good work from Benzema, and the Frenchman completed the scoring with a fine finish across goal 11 minutes later.
It all made for a fitting tribute to Alfredo Di Stefano, and you can watch the goals here…
