Real Madrid – Villarreal (2-1), victory for Real Madrid

In the 20th minute of play, Yeremi Pino scored in favor of the visitors of a conclusion with the end of the outside of the foot following a nice throw-in from Gerard Moreno. An achievement to which the Merengue have long been unable to respond. To tell the truth, they did not put the necessary ingredients in this perspective until the final start.

Their first period was very bland, and the second was not much brighter, even if there was a happy finish.

The useless revolt of the Madrilenians

Karim Benzema found the flaw in the lead in the 58th, but his achievement was invalidated due to a questionable offside. Five minutes later, the French international stood out again, this time without managing to surprise Geronimo Rulli.
