Real Madrid came from 0-2 down to beat a spirited but ultimately incredibly unfortunate Almería side who remain winless in LaLiga this season.
The game started off in the perfect fashion for Gaizka Garitano’s side, who scored after 41 seconds. A Nacho mistake allowed the away side to launch a quick attack and Ramazani slid under Kepa to stun the Bernabéu.
The second goal was a warning of the madness that was to come. Centre-back Edgar got on the end of a dropping ball to thunder a potential goal of the season effort into the top corner from distance, putting Almería two goals up.
Half time came and went and Ancelotti changed things up. Madrid started brightly and their fortunes turned when Bellingham slotted home a penalty after a long VAR check ended with a handball decision given against Kaiky.
However, Almería failed to let this stop them and they raced up the other end before Arribas made it 1-3. The game was then stopped to the surprise of the crowd and players, and a very weak foul was given against Bellingham in the build-up, causing the score to be reduced back after VAR check number two.
The next VAR check was not far behind: Vini Jr ‘shouldered’ the ball past Maximiano and after another long wait, the goal was eventually given, putting Madrid level amid controversial circumstances.
At 2-2, the attacks from Los Blancos kept coming. And then, just as it looked ‘too late’ for Real Madrid, the players realised there is no such thing as ‘too late’ at the Bernabéu.
Carvajal got on the end of a dropping ball inside the box to smash home from close range and take all three points in a sensationally dramatic game in LaLiga.
