Match report: Real Madrid 0 - 1 Villarreal

Villarreal pulled off what can be tagged as miracle as they scored a late goal to condemn Real Madrid to a home defeat in La Liga on Saturday, January 13.

Pablo Fornals scored late in the game to cap off a smart counter-attacking move to secure the three points.

It was another poor outing from Los Blancos as their defeat surely ends any of hope of successfully defending their La Liga crown.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo were guilty of missing multiple chances in the first half with Gareth Bale unable to direct a back heel towards goal.

Zidane's side were also denied two decent claims for a penalties by the referee.

However, their second-half performances was dreadful as they failed to really test Sergio Asenjo in goal.

The Yellow Submarines scored late in the game through Fornals who lobbing Keylar Navas after the Costa Rican saved an earlier attempt from a Villarreal counter-attack.

The pressure on Zinedine Zidane will only grow after this display.

Madrid remain fourth on the table one point above their opponents and also with a game in hand.
