Orelian Tachouméni of Real Madrid came off the bench to secure a header late in the game to defeat Las Palmas 2-1 and move his club to the top of La Liga on Saturday. After 21 games, Carlo Ancelotti’s club is now leading the league with 54 points, two points ahead of Girona in second place. Girona will take on Celta Vigo in their 22nd league encounter on Sunday.
Real labored in the first half without their leading scorer, Joud Bellingham, who was banned following his fifth yellow card in the previous week’s victory over Almeria. Starting the weekend in seventh place with just four points from European spots, Las Palmas showed tenacity in defense, frustrating Real attackers Vinícius Júnior and Rodrigo, who failed to capitalize on the creative touch of the experienced Bellingham in midfield.
Real held sway but failed to generate clear opportunities until the hosts seized the lead in the 53rd minute. Javi Munoz moved past Antonio Rudiger quickly and tapped in from close range following a low cross.
Real was roused by the score, and Vinícius Júnior caused many problems for the Las Palmas defense. He missed a simple chance close to the goal in the 64th minute, but he made amends a minute later when Vinícius Júnior equalized with a well-placed effort thanks to an outstanding assist from Eduardo Camavinga.
Real Madrid maintained their pressure, and after coming in for three minutes, substitute Tachouméni scored a vital header from a corner taken by Toni Kroos in the 84th minute to seal the victory.
“Having an inspired bench is very good, often providing valuable contributions,” Ancelotti stated during a news conference. It’s one of our tools. I look at the bench and I have a lot of talented guys that provide me with many ways to win the game.”
The victory of Real Madrid solidified their leadership in La Liga and demonstrated the value of strategic replacements in addition to the squad’s depth. Ancelotti’s deft substitution of players, such as Tachouméni’s game-winning header, demonstrates the team’s versatility and resiliency. The La Liga title fight is still ongoing, and Real Madrid’s chances of winning the championship are improved by their capacity to pull off big victories in the face of adversity.
