Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti made five changes to the starting side outclassed by Atletico Madrid 3-1 on Sunday. He rested LaLiga’s top scorer Jude Bellingham and giving new recruit Diaz his first start of the season.

The hosts were by far superior side but squandered more than a dozen clearcut chances in the first half. Diaz and Joselu missing sitters from close range.

They were also frustrated by goalkeeper Alvaro Valles who made a number of fine saves. Diaz finally broke the deadlock with a close-range strike deep into first-half stoppage time.

Real Madrid vs Las Palmas Live: Real Madrid gears up for the confidence against Las Palmas following a defeat in Madrid derby last weekend.

Substitute Lucas Vazquez, on for the injured David Alaba, delivered a low cross from inside the box to Diaz. Diaz unleashed an unstoppable strike into the top corner of the net.

Alaba added to Real’s injury woes with Dani Carvajal, Ferland Mendy and Vinicius Jr also on the sidelines. Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao are probably out for the rest of the season.

Arda Guler, who was expected to be available against Las Palmas after recovering from a knee operation, sustained a thigh injury in training that will further delay his debut for the team.

Vinicius did come off the bench in the second half after missing four consecutive games for his club.

Joselu extended Real’s lead in the 54th minute, nodding a lobbed cross from Rodrygo into the net and the hosts comfortably closed out victory.

“We created a lot of chances. I think we should have scored more but we played a very complete game and after a defeat it’s always nice to win, especially at home,” Diaz told Movistar Plus.

Real moved up to second place on 18 points, leapfrogging third-placed Barcelona who were held to a 2-2 draw by Mallorca on Tuesday.

Girona are the surprise leaders on 19 points after they fought back to win 2-1 at Villarreal on Wednesday and remain unbeaten after seven games of the LaLiga season.
