MADRID (REUTERS) – LaLiga leaders Real Madrid fought back from two goals down at home to rescue a 2-2 draw against lowly Elche on Sunday (Jan 23) thanks to a last-gasp Eder Militao goal in stoppage time.
Real Madrid wasted a golden opportunity to widen the gap at the top of the table after second-placed Sevilla stumbled at home with a draw against Celta Vigo on Saturday.
Real have 50 points from 22 games, four ahead of Sevilla.
Elche opened a two-goal lead with Lucas Boye netting in the first half and Pere Milla scoring after the break.
Luka Modric reduced the deficit with a penalty after 82 minutes and Vinicius Junior found Militao inside the six-yard box in the 92nd minute and he headed the equaliser.
