French star Karim Benzema inspired Real Madrid to a 2-0 victory over Celtic as the Spanish champions wrapped up their pre-season tour of the United States at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Saturday.

Jose Maria Callejon opened the scoring for Jose Mourinho's side on 22 minutes before Benzema doubled their lead midway through the second period.

Real, who also beat Los Angeles Galaxy, Santos Laguna and AC Milan during their stateside excursion, begin the defence of their league title at home to Valencia next Sunday.
