Isco, rewarded using a commence for his functionality off the bench inside the 3-2 win at Villarreal, opened the scoring immediately after eight minutes, but a fine solo target from Tana drew the guests level virtually quickly.
Las Palmas displayed composure around the ball that belied the type they've shown inside a run of 4 consecutive defeats and Bale's frustrations got the far better of him early inside the second half as he picked up two bookings for fouling Viera before pushing him to ground.
Viera compounded Madrid's anger when he created it 2-1 in the penalty spot and Boateng netted his seventh purpose in the season prior to the hour mark following a Keylor Navas error.
