Real Madrid secured a contentious 3-2 victory over Almeria in a La Liga clash during the 2023-24 season at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.


The match delivered a mix of excitement and drama, much to the dismay of the visiting team. Almeria surprised everyone by taking an early lead in the first minute, with Ramazani scoring from close range to hush the home supporters.


Gonzalez added to the spectacle with a remarkable volley from outside the box just before halftime, extending Almeria’s lead to 2-0. Real Madrid, however, staged a comeback in the second half, searching for an opportunity to salvage the game.

The first controversy arose when the referee awarded a penalty to Real Madrid, penalizing Almeria’s Kaiky for a handball while overlooking a foul by Rudiger in the buildup to the penalty. Jude Bellingham confidently converted the penalty, bringing the score to 2-1.

A potential goal from Sergio Arribas for Almeria was disallowed due to a foul in the buildup. Real Madrid then equalized through a contentious goal by Vinicius, initially ruled out for handball but later awarded after the referee reviewed it on the pitchside monitor.

In the late stages of the game, Almeria’s coach, Gaizka Garitano, was sent off for dissent. Real Madrid secured all three points in the 99th minute when Dani Carvajal turned in Jude Bellingham’s cross, sparking wild celebrations among the Bernabeu supporters.

Jude Bellingham’s goal in this match marked his 14th in La Liga for Real Madrid, making him the highest-scoring English player in the league’s history.

Football fans have now taken to the social media to slam Real Madrid for the controversial victory.

Mbah was very scathing in his criticism. He said: “The R in Real Madrid stands for Robbery”

For Opeoluwa, he took it to another level with his opinion on X:

He said: “Real Madrid is a prime example of the fact that cheating and wickedness rules the world.”

Abazz did not hold back in his criticism, describing it as the most rigged game he has ever seen.

He wrote on X: “This is literally the most rigged game I have ever seen. Real madrid has to be the biggest fraud of the century.”

The victory moves Real Madrid to the top of the table before Girona’s encounter with Atletico Madrid on Monday, a win for Girona will see them overtake Real Madrid.

Almeria remain winless in La Liga with a paltry six points from 20 games to occupy the bottom position.
