LaLiga: Barcelona now top of table after Real Madrid lose at Rayo Vallecano
On Monday night, Real Madrid's unbeaten start to the La Liga season came to an end when they were defeated 3-2 by Rayo Vallecano.
Santi Comesana, a member of the home team, gave the hosts the lead early on.
Before Madrid took the lead four minutes before halftime on Eder Militao's header, Luka Modric equalized from the penalty spot.
Alvaro Rivera's vicious strike crept in, though, and both teams went into the locker rooms.
With just under 20 minutes remaining, Rayo took back the lead thanks to a retaken Oscar Trejo penalty.
It was Andoni Iraola’s side that continued to press in the remainder of the game, clearly intent on ending their city rivals’ unbeaten streak.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men now sit second in the table behind archrivals Barcelona, having been handed their first loss of the La Liga season, and they have plenty to ponder after a lifeless display.
