Real Madrid pulled off a strong victory against their in-town rivals Rayo Vallecano. Two early goals from Alvaro Morata and Sergio Ramos lifted Los Blancos to victory on the night.

But the real story line will be the referee in this encounter. Sergio Ramos received two yellow cards in under two minutes. But sadly Rayo Vallecano were not able to capitalize on their advantage as they fall in the Bernabeu.
