Real Madrid vs Villarreal Live Score and Commentary

Real Madrid
FT
1 - 1
Villarreal
Sergio Ramos 48'
45'+1' Bruno (P)
...

Well, they huffed and puffed but they couldn't blow the house down! Madrid will have to be satisfied with 16 consecutive wins tied with Barcelona. Madrid were easily the better side in the second half but they failed to just get that crucial second goal.

Ramos handball was a controversial one. It was just on the line and was probably a penalty but should he have been sent off. Bruno Soriano produced a brilliant panenka and gave them the lead.

But Ramos made up for his error in the second half by scoring the equaliser. Zidane threw on Morata and Vasquez but they couldn't find that goal. Madrid will still be top of the league though

...

FULL TIME!!!! THAT"S TI!!! THE RECORD IS GONE!

...

Ronaldo hits the target but straight at the keeper!

...

FREE KICK FOR MADRID! RONALDO FOULED! 

...

91' Just 2 more minutes left!!

...

89' THAT WAS RONALDO"S BEST CHANCE!! He interchanges with Carvajal and the return ball is just behind him but still manages to get a shot with power on target but straight at the keeper!

...

89' VILLARREAL ESCAPE AGAIN!! Danilo's cross was brilliant but is somehow evades Ronaldo, Morata and Vasquez!

...

87' 3 minutes to go! This is 'Zidane time' isn't it?

...

86' OOOOOHHHHH! TWO SHOUTS FOR A PENALTY FRIST FOR A FOUL ON CARVAJAL AND THEN A HANDBALL!! BUT BOTH SHOUTS FROM MADRID ARE WAIVED AWAY!

...

83' SAVE BY ASENJO!!! Carvajal's cross finds Morata and he jumps highest and heads a powerful header into the ground but once again ASejo tips over!! If Villarreal hold he will be man of the match for sure!

...

82' Will it still be 16 wins for Madrid. It's 10 minutes to history or bust!

...

80' ASENJO ALMOST SLIPS UP!! Kroos shot swerved wildly and the keeper spills it slightly but grabs on to it before Ronaldo can get onto the rebound!

...

79' Villarreal almost score themselves! A great move as Mario and Trigueros combine and the former gets his shot away but Toni Kroos is there to block!

...

77' That's his last touch as Morata comes one for the Frenchman

...

76' BENZEMA JUST OVER FROM JAMES' CROSS!!

...

75' Another corner for Madrid as Ronaldo's shot is deflected!

...

74' It's all going a little south for Madrid! First the referee says no to a penalty appeal as Benzema goes into the box and then Kroos hacks down a player in frustration to receive a yellow

...

73' Alex Pato has come on in the meantime! He's the only player in this Villarreal squad who has scored a winning goal at the Bernabeu!

...

73' Villarreal have had more of the ball in the last few minutes and Real's attack has blunted slightly much to the frustration of the crowd

...

71' WELL SURPRISINGLY BALE IS COMING OFF and Lucas Vasquez has come on in his place!

...

69' Yellow card for Ronaldo! he was a little too eager to win the ball and hacks a yellow shirt down after he passed the ball away!

...

66' SO CLOSE TO 2-1!!! Benzema held off two defenders and sets up Bale for the curler perfectly but his attempt is just wide of the far post!! IT would have ended perfectly in the bottom left corner if it was on target!

...

63' The Portuguese star is back on his feet and wins a corner for Madrid! He looks determined today!

...

61' RONALDO INCHES AWAY!!! Bale plays in Carvajal who puts in a low ball that glides towards the far post but Ronaldo just can't reach it! TO make things worse he jars his knee into the post when he slid in to reach that ball!

...

59' MADRID HAVE HAD ATLEAST 15 corners this game!!

...

59' Kroos and Rodriguez are putting cross after cross and Asenjo and his defenders are clearing everything! How long can they keep this up?

...

56' ALL MADRID HERE AS Villarreal are making several last ditch clearances!

...

52' Madrid have come out all guns blazing this second half!! Villarreal are really under the cosh!

...

50' AND BENZEMA ALMOST DOUBLES THEIR LEAD! Kroos' lob is met by his header but it just goes wide! HE should have hit the target!

...

49' Well there is the argument if he should even be on the pitch after that handball but Villarreal paid for their poor defending!

...

AND IT"S 1-1!!!! RAMOS OF ALL PEOPLE SCORES WITH A BRILLIANT HEADER FROM THE CORNER! HE MAKES UP FOR HIS HANDBALL!!

...

45' PENALTY FOR VILLARREAL!!!! Handball against Ramos!

...

44' HUGE OPPORTUNITY WASTED BY VILLARREAL!! They won the ball in near Madrid's box and it was a 3 v 2 situation but their former man Cheryshev waited too long to take his shot and Varane's last ditch tackle saves them!

...

43' Marcelo is coming off and he seems to have a problem. Dani Carvajal will play on the left hand side. He is a right back though

...

42' A rare opportunity from Villarreal is wasted because of poor delivery from a corner! 

...

40' Villarreal are looking dangerous on the counter, but so far the Los Blancos defence has seemed very solid
