Real Madrid left at home James, Danilo & Kroos thinking ahead for the competition that really only matters now for them: Champions League. The team was not sharp & had important defensive lapses. Las Palmas did not win because they did not capitalize their created opportunities &, lastly allowed Real Madrid to get the 3 points due to a defensive error at the end of the game.
Sergio Ramos (later sent off in the 89th min with a red card) opened the scoring in the 23rd min with a header.
