That's all for today. I'm Siddhant Lazar and this was Sportkeeda's live match coverage of the La Liga clash between Villarreal and Real Madrid. For any questions do get in touch with me on Twitter @SiddhantAnush...
...
Game, set and match!! Real Madrid turn around a 2-0 deficit to come back and win 3-2. Brilliant stuff from Los Blancos and Zidane and it's astonishing at the amount of fighting spirit that they have. However all said and done, Villarreal deserve their fair share of praise despite a poor second half..
...
90+3' Chance!!! Carvajal drills in a low cross towards Alvaro Morata but the Spaniard can't find the back of the net and his shot is wide!! That could have ended the game!!
...
90+2' Villarreal with the ball as they stride forward with a few short quick passes. They've struggled to find an opening during this second half and it looks like their game is over..
...
90' Yellow Card!! Pepe goes into the book as he takes one for the team. Four minutes are added on as extra time as Villarreal look to somehow comeback from this brilliant Real Madrid performance!!
...
89' It's all happening at the Ceramica stadium. First, the home side scream for a handball in the box before Ronaldo clashes with Villarreal player and falls to the ground..
...
88' Substitution for Real Madrid As Lucas Vazquez walks on for the injured Gareth Bale.
...
86' A sensational first touch from Ronaldo as he rolls back the years before he lays it off for Bale. But the Welshman can't get a proper hit at the ball and falls to the ground cluching his ankle!!
...
85' Villarreal look done and dusted having conceded three goals in the matter of twenty minutes!! Madrid and Zidane have taken control of this game and it's now their to lose!!
...
It's all Madrid. A superb ball by Ronaldo sets Marcelo free and as the left back puts in another perfect cross in for Alvaro Morata who makes no mistake and finishes it!!!
3-2 and Real Madrid are back!!!
...
82' GOOOOOALLLLLL!!! BREATHTAKING COUNTER ATTACKING FOOTBALL BY LOS BLANCOS!!!
...
80' Less than ten minutes till full time and Real Madrid have recovered as Villarreal can't manage to string more than two or three passes together!! It's a suprising turn of events after a brilliant first half!!
...
79' Ronaldo is taken out by Mario Gaspar and it's another free-kick. The game has changed after that penalty and it looks like Madrid certainly have a chance now to make something off this game!!
...
78' Villarreal have now settled and look worse for wear after the aftermatch of the penalty as Madrid attacks on. Marcelo's cross is blocked and the ball goes out for a corner. 
...
76' Alvaro Morata comes on for Benzema but that's too be expected as the Frenchman hasn't been at his very best.
...
74' Rodri comes on for Manu Trigueros and the Villarreal manager Fran Escriba makes his way off the pitch having been sent off by the referee!!
...
RONALDO MAKES NO MISTAKE AND LEVELS THE SCORE AT 2-2. BRILLIANT PENALTY 
...
71' Ronaldo......Play has stopped for a few seconds as the Villarreal manager has a verbal argument with the linesman and Roberto Soldado has been yellow carded.. GOALLLLLL
...
71' Penalty!!!! Hand ball and the referee makes no mistake and Ronaldo steps up confidently!! Yellow card for Bruno Soriano.

...
70' Isco has been the difference so far and that was a brilliant move by Zidane. The Spainard has been behind multiple Madrid attacks so far!!!
...
68' Luka Modric doesn't look good but he's not coming off as the Croatian looks too tough it out. Zidane does still have two changes to make but he may save one for Bale, with the Welshman making his first start in a long time!
...
66' A shimmy by Ronaldo, his best play so far before he hands the ball over to Marcelo. The left-back's pass is intercepted and Villarreal run off on the counter attack!!
...
65' Ronaldo has been misfiring all match so far and it's another volley that flies way over the cross bar and the forward looks angry with himself!!
...
64' GOALLLLLL!!! GARETH BALE WITH A POWERFUL LEAP AND HEADER RIGHT INTO THE NET FROM ANOTHER DANNY CARVAJAL CROSS!!!
2-1 
...
63' The crosses are flying in now from Real Madrid as they look to find a way back into this match. Danny Carvajal's puts a dangerous one right into the box but's it's too close to the keeper's hands!!
...
61' CHANCES!!! A bouncing ball into the Villarreal box and it bounces off the head off Victor Ruiz and right into the path of Ronaldo who makes no mistake. His volley, however is smacked right against the far-post as Fernandez watches and breathes a sigh of relief!!!
What a chance!!!!!
...
60' Confidence is oozing from this Villarreal side as they boss the midfield between both Soriano and Dos Santos, along with Castillejo and Trigueros!!!
...
58' Isco's first pass and it's a good one, as the Spaniard floats a cross towards Ronaldo, who's heaader is high and wide over the goal!!
...
57' Subsitutions. Both teams bring on players as Adrian goes off for Denis Cheryshev and Zidane brings on Isco for Casemiro!!!
...
A Brilliant ball right down the middle by Bruno Soriano and Bakambu out-muscles Ramos and makes no mistake in making it 2-0!!
...
56' GOOOOOALLLL!!! IT'S BAKAMBU AS THE MADRID DEFENSE WAS SPLIT OPEN BY A BRILLANT PLAY FROM VILLARREAL!!!
...
55' Changes are being prepared for the home side as Adrian signals to the bench for a change. And who else but Denis Cheryshev???
...
54' Foul by Bakambu and Kroos steps up. The ball flies into the box and Ramos can't get to it but Madrid still have possession of the ball!!
...
52' That goal seems to have put a pep in their step as they effortlessly blend defence into attack!! Real Madrid have no answer for the Yellow Submarines!!! But Ronaldo charges foward!!
...
51' Villarreal have been the better side so far and have deserved the goal. They're back on the attack with Manu and Samu Castillejo!!
...
50' GOALLLLLL!!! ONLY TOWARDS MANU TRIGUEROS WHO'S RIGHT FOOT MAKES NO MISTAKE AND SMACKS IT PAST KEYLOR NAVAS!!
1-0 TO VILLARREAL!!
...
49' Castillejo with a brillant run and croses it in but it's cleared....
...
47' Three passes and Madrid are back into the box. This time it's Gareth Bale with an exciting run, before he drills another low cross in towards Benzema, who's tame shot is right into Fernandez's hands!!
...
46' A brilliant long ball towards Benzema who's first touch is good. The Frenchman waits for Ronaldo to arrive and then drills a low ball into the box, which goes nowhere but to the Villarreal defense!
...
A fascinating game of football so far, but the injury of Sergio Asenjo was the worst possible thing that could have happened to the home side.
