Sergio Ramos brutally trolled as Real Madrid lose 1-0 to Villarreal

Real Madrid crisis deepens with Villarreal defeat Atletico Madrid and Valencia win

Real Madrid, the defending La Liga champions, are now fourth, 16 points behind leaders Barcelona.

The defeat means Madrid have now failed to win their last three league games (two defeats, one draw).

Ronaldo - Real's most likely scorer throughout - came closest on the 45-minute mark, but Asenjo's miraculous save kept the scores level at the interval.

Real had almost triple the amount of shots on goal as Villarreal and also had Cristiano Ronaldo hit the woodwork twice at a rainswept Santiago Bernabeu, but Pablo Fornals's 87th minute strike inflicted a third home defeat on the floundering champions this season.

Champions Real Madrid's poor run in this season's Spanish LaLiga continued as they were stunned 1-0 at their Santiago Bernabeu home ground by Villarreal on Saturday.

Zidane told reporters: "The result is undeserving and hard because we had many chances but the ball didn't want to go in".


Real Madrid is now 16 points behind Barcelona having played the same number of matches.

Villarreal defender Alvaro Gonzalez was lucky to not face punishment for handball from a Gareth Bale header, while Cristiano Ronaldo was adamant he was fouled by Mario Gaspar on the stroke of half-time. Villarreal goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo tipped away a stinging distance strike from outside the area from Marcelo with little more than half an hour on the clock.

"The players will not drop their arms", he added of his squad. Los Blancos have already dropped more points this season than they did all of last season.

Villarreal was the better side in the whole game, and their coach, Javier Calleja, counted on counter attacks to break Real Madrid's defense.

The visitors scored what would prove to be the only goal of the game in the 27th minute when Antoine Griezmann cut the ball from the right towards Kevin Gameiro, who slotted past the on-rushing Marko Dmitrovic from close range.

"The club always has the chance to go into the market to buy the great players". The hosts pulled one back in the 88th minute through Florin Andone and Adrian Lopez had a gilt-edged chance to level in stoppage time but smashed the ball into the stands.
