Madrid’s win over Rayo Vallecano sends them top of the League

Real Madrid moved top of the La Liga league table as goals from Benzema and Toni Kroos helped them to a 2-1 win over Rayo Vallecano. However, Real Sociedad can replace them on top on Sunday if they manage to win.

It took just 14 minutes into the game for Toni Kroos to find the top corner after VAR was used to spot that Vinicius had been onside in the build-up that led to the stunning goal. Benzema added a second on 38 minutes, getting on the end of a David Alaba cross into the box to guide the ball into the back of the net as Real Madrid made their dominance count. Vinicius also came close to scoring an incredible solo goal in the second half as Real Madrid continued to dominate heavily. 

The game looked to turn away from Madrid’s dominance when Radamel Falcao came on after the hour mark and scored just minutes after coming on. He headed home a fine cross to give the visitors a lifeline, but the Colombian had to come off through injury. Toni Kroos made a stoppage-time off-the-line clearance as Real Madrid did just enough to win the game.
