Real Madrid suffer their first loss of the season losing to Rayo Vallecano.

Santi Comesaña put the hosts in front with a 5th minute strike, before Luka Modric and Éder Militão turned the game around for the reigning champions. Álvaro García restored parity for Rayo just before the break, and Óscar Trejo dispatched a retaken penalty in the second half to seal an unlikely victory for the hosts. Iraola’s men put in a fabulous display to emerge victorious, with their high intensity causing problems for Real Madrid all evening.

The loss sees Real Madrid slip to second in the La Liga table, behind leaders Barcelona. Rayo Vallecano move up to 8th place with 21 points. This result will no doubt come as a shock to many, but credit must go to Rayo Vallecano for their performance. It was an impressive display from start to finish, and they fully deserved their victory. Real Madrid will need to dust themselves down and regroup, as they look to regain their place at the top of the table.
