Bernabéu unimpressed despite Real Madrid win over Rayo
He wins the balls and slips in Kroos, who quickly keeps the ball moving. Madrid are coming into this game strongly now, and Kroos is yet to misplace a single pass. It panics the visitors, who rush around to get a touch and it pinballs around the area. The final touch is a Rayo one, however, who hoof the ball clear. The Rayo centre-back is winning everything in the air each time in steps into the Madrid box, which should be a concern to the home side It's fired across by Kroos and Vasquez hits a volleyed effort, but it's blocked.
Asensio is slipped through, but in the one-on-one opportunity he fluffs his lines and hits the ball straight at the goalkeeper. His header is flashed wide of the far post, agonisingly close! We could, and perhaps should, be level.
A long ball over to the right flank found Vasquez, who cut inside and slipped in Benzema whose clever run kept him onside. With only the keeper to beat, he got over the ball and placed it into the bottom left corner. One chance and one goal for the Frenchman Youngster Llorente has already started to drop deep for Madrid, in order to set up passing channels with the defence and get Madrid on the move.
Rayo so far looking fairly solid. It's pushing Madrid wide, but so far they're having little luck with their crosses. Pressing from the front by the opposition sees the ball quickly recycled to Courtois in goal, who hoofs it clear. He storms down the flank and whips in a cross, which is met by Karim Benzema at the near post. I'd quite like to see Isco brought on, just to see what kind of reaction he gets from the home fans. I suspect Solari is going to leave him well alone though.
Imbula is then the latest Rayo player to have a dig from outside of the box, but pulls his effort wide.

This is becoming a decidedly nervous closing period for the hosts. Modric then has a half-chance to put Madrid two the good, but blasts his shot on the run over the bar.
Very decent stuff from the visitors, though. The flag is up for offside, and replays show that the assistant referee was absolutely right. That set piece comes to nought, but moments later they get an almost identical dead-ball chance No, not this time.

Courtois comes out and claims. Can the visitors steal an equaliser shortly before half time? Embarba blasts it off target.
That was a monumental waste. Moments later, however, the German is in position to gobble up a Benzema lay-off on the edge of the yard box and thud a left-footed shot off the post! So close to a second! Benzema has been very lively. Rayo win a free-kick on the left flank that Embarba swings towards the back post, where the central defender gets his head to it.
However, he doesn't get as clean a connection as he did a few minutes ago, and Courtois scoops up the ball.
