La Liga Leaders Real Madrid Held by Rayo

In a surprising turn of events, La Liga leaders Real Madrid faced an unexpected challenge as they were held to a draw by Rayo Vallecano.

Real Madrid, the frontrunners in La Liga, stumbled to a draw against local rivals Rayo Vallecano, providing a glimmer of hope for Girona and Barcelona in the Spanish title race.

The visitors asserted dominance early, securing a lead through Joselu’s finish from Fede Valverde’s pass. However, Rayo equalized via Raul de Tomas’ penalty, awarded by VAR for Eduardo Camavinga’s handball.

Despite their early advantage, Real Madrid failed to capitalize further, settling for a single point.

This draw allows the 35-time La Liga champions to extend their lead over Girona by six points, while holding an eight-point advantage over Barcelona, who clinched a late victory against Celta Vigo.

Carlo Ancelotti’s squad, missing the presence of injured midfielder Jude Bellingham, struggled to convert their early momentum into sustained dominance against Rayo Vallecano.

The hosts, managed by 36-year-old Inigo Perez for the first time, showcased organizational strength, limiting Real Madrid’s scoring opportunities.

Despite efforts from substitute Toni Kroos and Dani Carvajal, Real Madrid couldn’t secure a late victory. Carvajal’s dismissal in injury time compounded their frustration, leaving them with a solitary point.
