After entering the game in the 75th minute, veteran Girona forward Cristhian Stuani scored five minutes later from the penalty spot after Marco Asensio had handballed.

Real Madrid was unable to secure a victory despite nine minutes of added time when Toni Kroos was dismissed for receiving a second yellow card in the waning seconds.
