Real Madrid Held 1-1 by Elche
Luka Modric opened the scoring from close range after Marco Asensio’s long-range effort came back off the crossbar. Modric handed the visitors the lead when he reacted first to the loose ball after Asensio’s fierce effort, but they were pegged back five minutes after the interval.
Dani Carvajal hauled down Antonio Barragan inside the area, and Fidel levelled the scores with an emphatic spot-kick to the bottom left corner and ended Real’s run of five consecutive league wins.
Carvajal nearly made amends 20 minutes later when he controlled an excellent pass from Toni Kroos and fired at goal, but Edgar Badía produced a smart save to deny the Real defender.
