Real Madrid defeated Rayo Vallecano 2-1 at the Bernabeu with goals from Benzema and Rodrygo. The victory was the team's first game since Sunday's racial taunts directed at their Brazilian forward Vinicius at Valencia.
Due to an injury, Vinicius was unable to play but supported his team from the stands. Real's players wore his number 20 while on the pitch, while the captains of both teams donned armbands with anti-racism inscriptions.
Karim Benzema's opener in the first half was cancelled out by Raul de Tomas in the 84th minute. For third-placed Real, Rodrygo scored the winning goal in the 89th minute to achieve victory.
