Real Madrid beat Los Angeles Galaxy to set up an International Champions Cup semi-final encounter with Everton.

A Karim Benzema brace has helped Real Madrid overcome Los Angeles Galaxy in the International Champions Cup.

Los Blancos ran out 3-1 winners at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona, setting up a semi-final clash with Everton in Los Angeles on Sunday morning.

Angel di Maria broke the deadlock with a deft finish in the 16th minute, but Carlo Ancelotti's men had to wait until the 51st minute before Benzema doubled the advantage.

The French striker took a glorious cross-field pass from Isco into his stride before firing low past Brian Rowe.

Jose Villarreal reduced the deficit in the 63rd minute, but Benzema grabbed his second goal of the evening 15 minutes from time to seal victory.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy will face Juventus in their second match of the tournament, which will also take place on Sunday.
