Real Madrid made a champion's comeback on Sunday. From going 0-2 down against LaLiga EA Sports bottom side Almeria, with no shots on target and a resounding whistle from their fans, to a 3-2 victory thanks to a goal by Dani Carvajal in the 99th minute. It was only a week ago that Real Madrid won the Spanish Super Cup after beating Atlético de Madrid (5-3) and Barcelona (4-1), but the demands of the white team are at their highest every day.

Elimination in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey on Thursday, in extra time against Atlético de Madrid, and a 0-2 halftime lead against the bottom team in La Liga that led to a resounding whistle from the Madrid fans. It took 38 seconds for Ancelotti's side's afternoon to get complicated. Real Madrid took the ball out of the center and conceded a goal. Inadmissible in the elite. A bad pass from Nacho Fernandez to Ferland Mendy caught the defense off guard, Largie Ramazani won the back of Dani Carvajal, fooled Kepa Arrizabalaga in the one-on-one and made the 0-1.

Almeria could have given an almost definitive blow, but they did not do it and Real Madrid did not forgive. Again, however, with a lateral cross and the VAR as protagonists. Vinícius made it 2-2, but the referee pointed out a handball by the Brazilian in a shot that, after reviewing it on the monitor, he considered that it was with the right shoulder. The goal was on the scoreboard and the match was heading for a comeback that could have come in the 77th minute, when a goal by Bellingham was disallowed for offside by Fran García, in the 81st minute with a one-on-one by Vinícius that Maximiano saved, in the 83rd minute with a bicycle kick by Bellingham, in the 93rd minute with a header by Joselu... but, as usual at the Santiago Bernabéu, it took a long time. But it came, in the 99th minute, with Dani Carvajal's finish at the far post after Bellingham's header that gave Real Madrid the three points in another trademark comeback.

Premier League scandal

While this was happening in Spain, the Premier League also experienced a controversial day in the match between Sheffield United and West Ham, as there was a penalty in favor of Sheffield United that after several replays it was noticed that there was no foul. While in the game between Liverpool and Bournemouth there was a very strong tackle on Luis Diaz that should have been expulsion, but there was no card for Kluivert of the cherries.
