Marco Asensio marked his long-awaited return by scoring with his first touch and Karim Benzema netted twice as Real Madrid cruised to a 3-0 win over Valencia on Thursday.

Asensio made up for lost time by showing sublime technique to double Madrid’s lead in the second half of the contest at Madrid Castilla’s Alfredo Di Stefano stadium.
