Arsenal were playing their fourth game of their pre-season tour of the USA and looking to keep up their perfect winning start.
And after wins against Bayern Munich and Fiorentina previously, fans are starting to wonder what might be this season under Unai Emery.
The Spanish boss enjoyed a fairly successful first season in charge last time out but ultimately just fell short come the end.
A fifth place finish in the Premier League and a loss to Chelsea in the Europa League final meant the team narrowly missed out on qualifying for this season’s Champions League.
The team struggled defensively throughout the campaign and that ultimately cost them.
One of the constants of the season though was the performance of forwards Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
Aubameyang netted 31 goals in all competitions with Lacazette bagging 19, while both seemed to harness great understanding with each other and linked up well.
And this telepathy looks like continuing after the pair both netted in the first-half against Real Madrid.
“Dream pair them, roll on the new season”
One Arsenal fan
The second of those goals was vintage Auba-Laca, with one setting up the other to score.
A lovely touch from Lacazette set up Aubameyang who showed excellent composure to round Keylor Navas in goal and double the lead.
Lacazette himself scored a penalty earlier to give the Gunners the lead, and the first-half display from both got fans excited about the new season.
“I can guarantee that Laca is gonna win the PFA player of the year. He’s tearing apart one of the best teams in Europe,” said one fan.
Another said: “Dream pair them ������, roll on the new season.”
And a third wrote: “Lets hope this continues into the league because nobody will be able to stop them.”
Lacazette and Aubameyang are the best combination in world football,” said another.
Another simply wrote: “Wow these two. It’s a dream.”
The Gunners went in to the half-time break with a 2-0 lead, surprisingly with both teams done the 10 men.
Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid came back into the clash in the second-half and pulled the scores back to 2-2.
