Real Madrid enjoys a game that goes down to the wire.

Real Madrid won five of their six games between the international break in October and November, but only one of those matches was won convincingly.

Los Blancos have topped Champions League group D and are second in LaLiga Santander, one point behind Real Sociedad, but with a game in hand.

The last time Los Blancos won convincingly was against Shakhtar Donetsk at the NSC Olimpiyskiy, whom they defeated 5-0.

Real Madrid won the Clasico 2-1 at the Camp Nou, due to a David Alaba opening and a Lucas Vazquez goal late in the game, after their success in Ukraine.

Los Blancos, on the other hand, were unable to put the game to bed sooner and were punished after opening the score, with Sergio Aguero drawing one back in stoppage time.

The Clasico pattern was repeated in Elche, where Real Madrid built a two-goal lead courtesy to a Vinicius Junior brace, but failed to complete the game, allowing the hosts to come back into the match with Pere Milla’s goal in the 86th minute.

At the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Karim Benzema broke the stalemate after 16 minutes, only for Fernando to equalize before the interval.

The Frenchman scored the game-winning goal shortly after the hour mark, but Real Madrid were unable to put the game to bed, and the visitors posed a danger in the closing minutes.
Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema gave Carlo Ancelotti’s side a two-goal lead over Rayo Vallecano, but Radamel Falcao came off the substitute to equalize with 14 minutes remaining.

Rayo pressed for a second but was unable to equalize, and Real Madrid won for the fifth time in six games.
