Real Madrid vs Real Valladolid ended in a 1-0 win for Zinedine Zidane's side at the Estadio Di Stefano Stadium.
The only goal of the match was scored by Vinicius Junior as Los Blancos recorded their second victory of the season.
Eden Hazard was ruled of the clash due to injury but the likes of Marcelo, Isco and Odriozola made their appearance of the season.
Federico Valverde was the first to test Valladolid goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez while Luka Jovic could not keep his shot down later on.
In the early exchanges of the second half, Casimero rattled the cross-bar from a goal-mouth scramble via a corner kick.
Valladolid almost went ahead before the hour mark but Thibaut Courtois produced a fine save from Shon Weissman's shot to keep the score at 0-0.
Madrid finally got their goal in the 65th minute as Vinicius who started the move had a little bit of luck as his opponents misjudged pass fell kindly to the Brazilian who made it 1-0.
Courtois made a fantastic stop to maintain Real's one-goal advantage while at the other end, Luka Modric's shot hit the post.
Zinedine Zidane's side grabbed all three points on the night and remain unbeaten after three matches in the 2020-21 campaign.
Next up for the defending champions is a tricky test away at Levante while Barcelona will play Celta Vigo.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Eden Hazard may not be in Real Madrid's line up to begin their La Liga defence against Real Sociedad at the weekend after failing to recover from an ankle injury.
According to reports from Spain, Los Blancos are unhappy with the Belgian attacker who has not hit his peak since his big summer move from Chelsea last summer.
The 29-year-old has been restricted to game time due to recurring injury problems in most part of last season.
