Real Madrid had their eyes set firm on exploiting Barcelona’s slip up against Atletico de Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane’s men duly capitalized on the golden opportunity against Getafe to pull themselves 4 points ahead of the stuttering defending Champions.
But Los Blancos had to take the hard route against 6th placed Getafe, who put up a good fight.
Chances were hard to come by for Real against a sturdy Getafe side.
However, a 77th-minute surge from Dani Carvajal earned his team a deserved penalty.
Despite the all-important Sergio Ramos winner, fans had their eyes glued for this funny off the ball incident leading up to the penalty.
As Carvajal hit the ground after the foul, his counterpart Ferland Mendy mirrored his fall in a completely unprompted and synchronous motion.
Fans on Twitter still cannot wrap their head around this hilarious telepathic moment between Real Madrid’s full-back pairing –
Why did Mendy fall in the same time as Carvajal😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/ruNcDtY12T‚ÄĒ Omar 🇪🇬 (@Omar10129) July 2, 2020
