Madrid secure seventh win in 7 games to go seven points clear
Real Madrid maintained their 100% win record since the restart of LaLiga activity in June and once again the victory was overshadowed by a VAR decision which awarded Zidane's side a spot kick as the clock ticked down.
Despite limited appeals from the visiting side when Marcelo and Dani Garcia tangled, match official Gonzalez Gonzalez consulted the VAR screen and deemed that the Brazilian was impeded by the Athletic defender with Ramos slotting home the resulting penalty.
Ahead of that pivotal moment, both sides enjoyed spells of bright play and domination with Athletic having the upper hand of the action.
After the game, Athletic captain Muniain was interviewed by Spanish TV and stated: “we’ve seen how things have gone in recent weeks....depending which team it is, some penalties are given. Let everyone reach their own conclusions.”
Real Madrid march on and take a major step closer to securing the 2019/20 title and now lead FC Barcelona by seven points as the Catalan side face a tricky trip to Vila-real this evening with a win impressive to maintain any slender hopes of retaining their title.
