Real Madrid picked up three golden points after beating Las Palmas 2-1 on matchday 22 of LaLiga. The Canary Islands scored the first goal in the 53rd minute through Javi Muñoz, who received a pass from Sandro Ramírez in the penalty area and finished at the near post.
However, the team led by Carlo Ancelotti responded and in the 64th minute Vinicius seemed to decide the game with a left-footed shot from a cross from Camavinga. Motivated by the Brazilian's goal, the Meringues cornered the yellow team and scored the winning goal in the 84th minute. The chosen one was Aurélien Tchouaméni, who took advantage of Toni Kroos' corner to score with a header and take home the three points.
“It's a very important win, it was difficult for us, we can't always come back. “The Las Palmas goal gave us the impetus to apply more pressure without the ball and to be more effective,” explained Ancelotti.
