The yellow is an unlucky colour for Real Madrid. On Wednesday, Los Blancos drew againtst Villarreal and only three days later the team couldn’t beat Las Palmas. Real Madrid had the lead several times but couldn’t get the points and now Barcelona is just one point behind.
Zidane decided to choose Casilla as the goalkeeper and Keylor Navas was on the bench. Nacho was Marcelo’s substitute and Marco Asensio has another opportunity in the starting eleven. The youngster is taking every opportunity he’s haing and again he was very important.
Actually, Real Madrid started the game attacking a lot and Javi Varas -Las Palmas goalkeeper- was the best in the game. Luckily for Los Blancos, Marco Asensio was again very lucky and he scored the first goal of the game with a header. The joy didn’t last a lot for Los Blancos because Las Palmas drew quite soon with a goal scored by Tania. With one each we arrived at the half time.
This result wasn’t enough for Zidane’s squad. The team needed to win because just a few hours before, Barcelona thrashed Sporting. Real Madrid looked decided to get the three points and Benzema scored the second goal. The French striker started on the bench and Morata has his opportunity in the starting eleven.
It seemed that Real Madrid could get the three points from a difficult stadium but Las Palmas is a tough team and this year they are showing they can be very competitive. Araujo, only five minutes before the final whistle, scored the second goal for Las Palmas. Another blow for Real Madrid, who couldn’t win the last two games in La Liga but they are still top of the table. On Tuesday they have to travel to Germany to face Borussia, another yellow and very difficult team.. Can Real Madrid win again?
