FT: Real Madrid 3-0 Villarreal. Real Madrid stay in the Liga title race with Karim Benzema heading the opener, Lucas Vazquez and Luka Modric's second half goals putting the icing on the cake.
...
90+3' Replays show that Marcelo did trip Baptistao. Villarreal ought to have had a penalty. Moot point, however.
...
90+2' Baptistao goes down in the box under a shoulder challenge from Marcelo. The referee waves play on, correctly. Cristiano Ronaldo is off the pitch, mysteriously.
...
90+1' Villarreal have a chance to score but Samuel dallies in the box and allows Casemiro to block the shot and subsequently clear.
...
90' 3 minutes of added time.
...
89' Madrid threaten again with another cross into the area, but Villarreal hack the ball clear. Real are enjoying their football, as they've finished this game off.
...
88' Real Madrid are toying with Villarreal now. Ronaldo twists and turns on the left side of the box, and pays it to Marcelo, whose early cross is tempting for the host of white shirts in the box, but it evades everyone for a goal kick
...
...
...
86' Casemiro is booked for a rather nasty foul. It ought to be his second yellow, but Danilo was booked at the end of the first half in a case of mistaken identity. Denis Suarez takes the free kick and it's straight at Navas.
...
...
...
84' Mateo Kovacic comes on for Lucas Vazquez. The goalscorer is warmly applauded as he exits the pitch.
...
...
82' Villarreal attempt to put together an attack as they chase a consolation goal.
...
...
...
...
79' Modric comes off for James Rodriguez. Ronaldo meanwhile, takes the chance to change his shirt, which was torn when grappling with Mario Gaspar from a corner.
...
76' A fantastic run from Danilo down the right wing ends with the fullback chipping a wonderful cross to an onrushing Modric, who connects with a first time volley, and watches his left-footed strike rifle into the net. Real Madrid 3-0 Villarreal.
...
76' GOAL MODRIC!!!!
...
75' Madrid almost score from a corner! Marcelo nearly scores from close range, but Villareal clear, only for Isco to find space in the box and shoot, but Ramos and Ronaldo are offside.
...
74' Bailly is down just after Villarreal make their final change. Replays show he should be back up and running.
...
70' Ronaldo nearly makes it 3-0 with a shot across goal from the left, but watches his strike fly narrowly wide.
...
69' A fantastic goal from Lucas Vazquez! The 24 year old plays a swift one-two with Benzema and charges up the right edge of the box and lets fly at the near post, with Asenjo beaten by the pace of the strike. Real Madrid 2-0 Villarreal
...
69' GOAL VAZQUEZ
...
65' Ronaldo channels his inner Ronaldinho with a no look pass when under pressure near the halfway line. The Bernabeu gasps. Moments later Villarreal break, and send the ball into the danger zone which ultimately results in the ball being deflected towards goal, but Navas catches the ball.
...
64' Leo Baptistao comes on for Adrian Lopez
...
61' Madrid cause further consternation in the visitor's defence as Vazquez sends in a low cross that seems destined for Ronaldo but Asenjo intercepts and palms the ball away.
...
60' An hour gone, and the proceedings in the second half have been much better than the first. Although the telling contribution of the game did come in the first.
...
58' GREAT DEFENDING! Varane denies a certain goal as he acrobatically clears with an overhead kick, after Bakambu looked set to make contact with a chipped pass over the Madrid defence.
...
56' WHAT A TACKLE! Bonera makes a fantastic block to deny Ronaldo's shot, after Benzema had found the Portuguese star's run across goal from right to left.
...
55' Ronaldo receives the ball from Modric about 30 yards out and in space. His effort on goal is much like the one he took in the first half - high and wide.
...
53' Close! Vazquez reads Danilo's overlap on the right well, and bisects the Yellow Submarine defence with a through pass. Danilo's low cross is deflected and bobbles dangerously in the box, but the visitors hack the ball clear.
...
51' Benzema is lurking dangerously as Bailly clears a cross from the right. Real Madrid have started the second half in a much more attacking fashion. Moments later, Ronaldo works some space and shoots from the edge of the box, but Bailly's diving block takes some sting out of the shot.
...
49' Ronaldo wants to take a corner quickly after a long ball from Marcelo is cleared, but his teammates cannot keep up with him. The corner is worked to Modric to let fly from range, and the Croatian's powerful effort curls narrowly wide of the right post.
...
48' The delivery at the near post is good, and Ronaldo charges at the cross from the right, but heads the ball over the bar.The Portuguese forward is left frustrated.
