Real Madrid 0 Villarreal 1: Fornals' late show stuns frustrated champions

Madrid lost for the second trime in three matches

A late Pablo Fornals goal condemned Real to a defeat that leaves them in fourth place, 16 points behind leaders Barcelona with the same number of games played.

Fornals was on hand for the away side just after it looked like Enes Unal had fluffed his team's chance after a blistering counter-attack following a Real Madrid corner.

Los Blancos were again without the services of injured pair Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema, but Dani Carvajal was back from suspension to feature for the Spanish champions.

"Everything that is said about Real Madrid is negative, but in reality things are not like that".

Real fired off almost 30 shots but their accuracy was wayward, with Cristiano Ronaldo among the worst culprits in front of goal.

North Korea has yet to respond to the South Korean proposal, leaving some uncertainty as to the agenda and the venue of the talks. The Trump administration had said that Kim must at least pause his nuclear weapons program before talks would be considered.

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.

Real dominated the second period, but after failing to break down the resolute visitors, Fornals stepped up to make history and pile the pressure on Zidane.

Villarreal were still a serious danger, however, and Bacca smashed the ball into the side-netting just past the hour after brilliant work from Castillejo in a wide position.

Real Madrid will play against Villarreal at the Santiago Bernabéu in the 19th round of the Santander La Liga 2017/2018.

He made an even better stop to palm Ronaldo's 25-yard dipping free-kick over the top via the crossbar, before the Portugal captain wastefully dinked over Asenjo and wide of the left post after latching onto Luka Modric's throughball. 'We are in January and it is the same coach and nearly the same players who won eight titles in the last two years.
