FT: Rayo Vallecano 2-3 Real Madrid. A stunning comeback from Real Madrid, who came back from 2 goals down in the opening 15 minutes to win the game 3-2, with a brace from Gareth Bale and Lucas Vazquez earning the visitors a vital win, that pushes Madrid to the top of La Liga, although Barcelona and Atletico still have to play.
...
90+3' 60 seconds to go. Real Madrid have possession after Rayo concede a free kick. Can they hold on?
...
90+1' Almost! Rayo almost grab an equalizer, with the ball falling to Miku in the box, but Real Madrid get some heroic blocks in
...
90' 4 minutes of added time. Do I hear cheers and prayers in Barcelona?
...
...
87' 3 minutes of normal time remain. Can Rayo score and set the cat among the pigeons
...
...
...
84' That goal was cruel on Vallecano, who have played extremely well, but Zidane will not care about Paco Jimenez' feelings, as the Frenchman and the rest of the Real bench exploded with joy upon Bale scoring
...
...
...
81' No Ronaldo, No Problem! Gareth Bale collects the ball in midfield from a counter and unleashes a stunning burst of pace to drive to the left edge of the box, before striking a low drive into the Rayo goal and silence the Vallecas. Rayo Vallecano 2-3 Real Madrid.
...
81' GOAL BAAAALLLLEEEE
...
...
79' Bale's effort does not clear the ball, and the tension of the situation dissipates.
...
77' Amaya is still down after his challenge, with James getting ready to come on for Real Madrid. Rat eventually replaces Amaya, with Kovacic coming off for James.
...
76' Amaya goes into the book for a foul on Bale. Real Madrid have a free-kick in a threatening position, with Bale standing over it.
...
74' This is a game of counter-attacks. First Rayo Vallecano counter down the right, but Madrid intercept and switch wings, allowing Bale to send in a low cross from the right aimed at Lucas Vasquez, but he cannot get a touch while being closely marked.
...
72' Miku drives at the Madrid defence and sets a lovely backheel for Trashorras to curl from the left edge of the box, but Navas makes a good save.
...
70' Twenty minutes to go. Can a strikerless Real Madrid grab a goal back to keep their title hopes alive? Or will Rayo score another one and shock their visitors on the counter-attack?
...
67' Iturra goes into the book for a bad foul on Vasquez
...
65' The Vallecas is still as loud as ever, despite Real Madrid equalising. Meanwhile, Kovacic goes into the book for a foul on Quini, who receives some treatment.
...
...
63' Jese comes off for Modric. Real Madrid might be shifting to a 4-4-2, with Bale and Vasquez up top
...
62' Pepe goes down rather easily under pressure from Miku, and the referee blows for a foul and spares Pepe the blushes
...
...
60' An hour gone, and Real Madrid have responded well to going 2 goals down. Can the visitors score another and keep their title hopes alive with a win?
...
59' SHOT! Kovacic intelligently flicks on the ball to Jese who shoots straight at Juan Carlos in the Rayo goal. Moments later, Vasquez almost scores again, as he narrowly misses a low cross from Bale on the right.
...
...
58' End-to-end stuff as Rayo have a corner as a burst down the right wing is cleared.
...
...
56' Pepe gets his head on Isco's delivery from the left corner, but his downward header is easily saved. Meanwhile Bale attacks later from the right and Rayo concede a corner with a clearing tackle.
...
55' Embarba almost puts Rayo ahead after Marcelo is asleep while marking him, but the Rayo man wastes the chance.
...
...
53' Isco charges up the field and is fouled on the edge of the box. Real Madrid have a free-kick, with Bale, Kroos and isco interested. Ultimately, it's Isco and his shot is narrowly wide.
...
52' Real Madrid are level! Danilo sends in a wonderful cross at the far post, and the smallest man on the pitch, Lucas Vasquez towers over his marker and heads home. Rayo Vallecano 2-2 Real Madrid
