Villarreal's first-ever win at Bernabeu

14 January, 2018, 10:37 | Author: Wade Massey

Pablo Fornals scored with an exquisite chip to complete a stunning counterattack in the 87th minute to give the visitors a surprising 1-0 victory in the Real Madrid vs Villarreal match.

Fornals clipped home his 87th-minute victor just after it looked like Enes Unal had fluffed his team's chance to snatch the three points after a blistering counter-attack following a Real Madrid corner.

And Zidane rued his side's failure to score, saying: "We did everything, we had many chances to score in the game and the ball did not want to go in".

Real Madrid playmaker Luka Modric has been criticised.

"Things can change but I think it's best to change things in June rather than now".

Playing like this, Madrid are simply not a very scary side and there is much work to be done if Los Blancos are to have any chance of beating Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 of the Champions League. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is notorious for lacking patience when it comes to keeping managers after trophyless campaigns, and Zidane could be the latest one to fall prey to the policy.

With just nine wins in 17 league games so far, defending the La Liga title seems to be out of out of the equation, with bitter rivals Barcelona a massive 16 points ahead.

Kenyan striker Michael Olunga had a day to remember on Saturday as he came off the bench to score a hat-trick in Girona's historic 6-0 win over struggling Las Palmas.

"We knew that we could make history today and we always believed it", said Villarreal coach Javi Calleja. They have 32 points after 18 games which is the same total as in 2005-2006 which ended in a year without trophies for Real.

This was a season in which Madrid were supposed to dominate. Just what is happening to this side in the dressing room? Still the comparison doesn't look good for Zidane. Los Blancos have already dropped more points this season than they did all of last season.

It is now clearly odds-against that Zidane will still be in charge next season. It started the year by defeating second-division club Numancia 3-0 in the Copa del Rey, but then was held by Celta Vigo to 2-2 in the Spanish league and couldn't manage more than another 2-2 against Numancia in the return leg of the Copa at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
