The Cristiano Ronaldo-Gareth Bale show continued in La Liga on Saturday as Real Madrid stormed to a 3-0 lead at Rayo Vallecano thanks to two goals from Ronaldo and two assists from the Welshman. However, shortly after Bale assisted Ronaldo for Real’s third, Los Blancos conceded two penalties in quick succession and were forced to hang on for a 3-2 win.
After the game, Coach Carlo Ancelotti was apoplectic at the defensive errors. "Against Sevilla we were 3-0 up and let them back into the game. Today the same thing happened and that is not a coincidence," the Italian said. "We need to change and remove the superficiality we have on the field, the second half was a disaster.”
