Real Madrid stumbled at home against Girona. The Royal clearly missed attack leader Benzema and did not get further than a 1-1 draw. It sees Barcelona, who could have won yesterday, so close to a point. It is Real’s second loss of points of the season, with Eden Hazard already on the bench for the entire game.
Vinicius was only able to take the lead against a stiff Girona in minute 70, but only sixteenth in the standings. On an assist from Toni Kroos, the Brazilian was able to simply slide in the leather.
Ten minutes later, however, the signs were level again. Girona was awarded a penalty and substitute Stuani did not fail. Thibaut Courtois was so right. Striking: ‘El Muro’ was not yet able to keep a zero in the competition this season, although the fault can mainly be found in the Real defense.
Real went looking for the winning goal after the acid goal. That also seemed to come after Rodrygo scored, but his goal in the last minute of work was disallowed. Real clearly missed captain Benzema, who is in the basket.
It ended the game with ten after a red card for Toni Kroos. A unique event for the German, because it was the first time he was sent off. And that in a career of 15 years.
The draw sees the royal arch-rival Barcelona, who could have won yesterday, approaching one point. Girona, together with three other teams, is in penultimate place.
