Ten-man Real Madrid failed to go above Barcelona in the Spanish La Liga, after being locked at 3-3 with Las Palmas in Santiago Bernabeu.

Los Blancos started the match will full force and were in front as early as the 8th minute through Isco. But Real’s joy was short lived when Tana equalized two minutes later with a thunderous shot.

Things then got even worse for Madrid after restart as they were reduced to 10 men following Gareth Bale’s red card. The visitors took full advantage and got themselves in the lead on Jonathan Viera's penalty in the 56th minute.

And former Tottenham midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng scored a third on the counter-attack to put Las Palmas in the driving seat. But Cristiano Ronaldo came to Real’s rescue and pulled two goals back to grab at least a point for the Galacticos.
