During the second part, Iker Casillas, captain and keeper of Real Madrid, did an excellent job stopping the few balls that came from the attempts made by the  visiting striker Lassad Nouioui.

Real Madrid put together some good plays that gave rise to more goals. At 53 minutes, Higuain scored the fourth goal. Just seven minutes later, defender Ze Castro from the visiting team, increased the score for Madrid in an unfortunate own goal.

Juan Rodriguez took advantage a little carelessness of the local defense to give his team the goal of honor. Real Madrid kept on with its attack. Cristiano Ronaldo ended the match with a nice shot after 89 minutes for the definite 6-1 win.
