Real Madrid tried until the end but the goal would not come in the second game of pre-season, in which Casillas, Ramos, Modric, Coentrão, Xabi Alonso and Arbeloa all played their first minutes. The Whites dominated play and chances, but it was Roma who won thanks to a goal from Totti. 

The first chance for Madrid, who were giving their new pink kit a debut, came early on. Isco was the author, but Ashley Cole blocked his volley from the penalty spot on 5'. The next two were created by Bale. The Welshman's cross-shot almost took Skorupski by surprise after 16 minutes, and four minutes later he had a more clear-cut chance. Lucas played him in, but Bale could not find the target when one-on-one with the goalkeeper. 
 
 

THERE WAS A TIMEOUT IN THE 32ND minute BECAUSE OF THE HIGH TEMPERATURES. 

The Whites dominated the game but did not have luck in front of goal. This was demonstrated in the final chance of the first 45 minutes, in which Madrid had nine shots compared to their rival's two. It was a double opportunity but Skorupski was able to keep out Lucas's volley, and Pepe's rebound was cleared by the defence. The match was decided in a second half in which Diego López, Nacho, Arbeloa and Raúl de Tomás came on for Casillas, Pepe, Coentrão and Lucas respectively.

No luck in front of goal
Everything was made more complicated in minute 58. Totti started the move with a nutmeg, Florenzi crossed, and the Roma captain himself finished past Diego López from the penalty spot. The Italian side managed to score from one of the few opportunities that they had. 

A comeback was needed, and Modric tried in minute 65, but his left-footed shot went over the bar after some nifty footwork on the edge of the box. It was not the only chance. Raúl de Tomás also had two goes from the edge of the penalty area. Time ran out and the Whites are now unable to defend their International Champions Cup trophy.
