A controversial late penalty sees Real Madrid overcome Elche 2-1 at the Martinez Valero.

Elche have been denied a precious point at home against Real Madrid by a controversial penalty decision in stoppage time at the Martinez Valero.

Cristiano Ronaldo had given Los Blancos the lead in the 51st minute with a free kick that dipped viciously in front of Manu Herrera.

Last year's Segunda Division champions looked to have rescued a draw late in the last minute thanks to a Richmond Boakye header, which was no less than they deserved.

However, the home fans were enraged when the referee blew his whistle after Carlos Sanchez and Pepe took a tumble inside the area deep into injury time.

Replays showed that it was a harsh decision on the home side, but that mattered little to Ronaldo, who made no mistake from 12 yards.

It proved to be the last kick of the game, and the officials left the field to a chorus of irate whistles from the home crowd.
