In what could prove to be a crucial result in the context of the title race, Real Madrid dropped a point today after drawing 1-1 with Rayo Vallecano.

It was a hard-fought point for Vallecano, with a first-half equalizer from Raul de Tomas and some solid defensive in the second half ensuring that they maintain distance from the relegation flock.

For Real Madrid, the result meant more than just a lost point. The club were unable to break the shackles of the opposition defence and more importantly, lost Dani Carvajal with a red card.

Two Real Madrid players suspended vs Sevilla

Dani Carvajal was sent off late in the game after he picked up a second yellow card. He was booked for shrugging off Kike Perez aggressively.

Carvajal’s red card means he will not be available for Real Madrid in their next league game against Sevilla on Sunday.

Carvajal is not the only Real Madrid player to be ruled out against Sevilla with a suspension. The Spaniard is joined by Eduardo Camavinga on the list of suspended players for Los Blancos.

While Carvajal was sent off for two yellow cards in just 20 minutes against Rayo Vallecano, Camavinga was heading into the game with a suspension scare.

The midfielder had picked up four yellow cards in La Liga prior to his affair. As one would guess, the youngster picked up a rather unnecessary yellow card against Rayo around the hour mark for showing his frustration at the referee.

The booking meant Camavinga will now join Carvajal on the sidelines as Real Madrid take on Sevilla next weekend.

Following this result, it is now clear that other Real Madrid stars must step up as Los Blancos look to avoid giving Girona an opportunity to make a late surge in the title race.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
