Real (Madrid) unpleasantly surprised their fans after reaching only 0:0 at home to Rayo Vallecano. The “Kings” were not convincing enough and did not find a way to the goal of the stable Stole Dimitrievski. After the draw, the sole leader in La Liga became Girona.
Real (Madrid) started the match with an enviable amount of self-confidence and Federico Valverde could have scored early. The Uruguayan was left alone against Dimitrijevski, but the North Macedonia international saved decisively with his foot.

Jude Bellingham worried Real’s staff after he stopped a ball on his chest. In the fall, the England international seemed to be hit because he grabbed his left shoulder. The medical team of the home team examined him for several minutes, but in the end he stood up and returned to the game a little later.
A mistake by Fran García could have cost the Whites a goal. He lost the ball in a dangerous area, Raul de Thomas was brought alone against Kepa and shot wide but was well behind the defense on the pass. Issy’s shot also missed the mark. Real pressure followed and the visitors’ defense was put under pressure.

The second half continued with “white” mistakes. A fantastic pass from Modric found Vinicius in front of goal, but the Brazilian failed to direct the ball. Joselu’s header from a good position missed the goal. Real made every attempt to get a goal, but it never fell. Vinicius threw a lot of effort, but he didn’t have a day either. He managed to send the ball into the net, but the goal was disallowed because Joselu, who passed it to him, was in an ambush.
The final pressure of the “Kings” was rather subdued by the tension. Antonio Rüdiger even played in the attack, but this did not help “los merengues” either.
