Madrid meets Rayo

Tie to one in the friendly in Valdebebas. Ancelotti only lined up Lunin, Nacho, Odriozola, Marcelo, Odegaard, Isco and Lucas from the first team.


Real Madrid had to settle for a draw in their second pre-season rehearsal. After last weekend's 3-1 at Fuenlabrada, this time Ancelotti's team had to go up a notch to face this recently promoted Rayo Vallecano to First and the result in Valdebebas was a draw (1-1). Isco scored a penalty and the Vallecano goal was the work of Madrid's Victor Chust in his own goal.

A Madridista match marked by casualties. Ancelotti only lined up Lunin, Nacho, Odriozola, Marcelo, Odegaard, Isco and Lucas Vázquez from the first team. In fact, the loss of Jovic, Mariano and Rodrygo, who have been at a slower pace, forced the Italian to line up the entire game to the Castilla striker Latasa. Carvajal did not play either, with a break planned by the coaching staff.

In fact, the white goal came generated by an action in which the youth squad Latasa was the protagonist, who received the penalty that Isco transformed. A draw that allows Ancelotti to increase revolutions before the next friendly, next Sunday in Glasgow against Gerrard's Rangers.

Iraola opted for the next eleven to face the whites in what was the first test for the Rayistas of the preseason. He formed with Luca Zidane, Mario, Saveljich, Catena, Fran García, Óscar, Trejo, Andrés, Babe, Álvaro and Sergio Moreno. The franjirrojos, who released their peculiar second kit for the next season, with lightning flashes in different parts of it, will leave for their preparation stage in Marbella.

The white team will enjoy, meanwhile, a day of rest, this Monday. On Tuesday he will have to return to work and during the week several of the internationals who are still on vacation due to their participation in the European Championship will be reinstated.
