Real Madrid v Santiago Bernabeu 13 January 2018

Zinedine Zidane's side lost 1-0 to Villarreal at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday in a fresh disappointment that leaves Los Blancos well adrift in the Liga table - and the Frenchman fighting for his job in the second half of the season.

It wasn't just the Real Madrid players who featured in their humiliating home defeat to Villarreal that left the Bernabeu with their tail between their legs on Saturday afternoon. Asenjo punched away a long-range blast from Marcelo, got his fingertips to a Cristiano Ronaldo free kick, forced Ronaldo to hit wide one-on-one, saw Ronaldo hit the outside of the post on another chance, blocked a Ronaldo shot from six feet out and parried away a rocket volley from Toni Kroos.

As the home side poured forward in search of a victor, they were caught on the break; Fornals chipping in the rebound after Keylor Navas saved from Eres Unal. Real Madrid also suffered one of their most embarrassing losses of the season when Barcelona thrashed them 3-0 at the Bernabeu last month. Villarreal goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo made a couple of excellent saves, but it was not a case of a keeper having the game of his life; instead, he simply dealt with what was thrown at him.

The master scene in the game was three minutes before the final whistle when Villarreal midfielder Pablo Fornals scored the only goal in the game and secured the three points for his team.

With the rain coming down on a drenched Zidane in his technical area the megaphone played the Madrid hymn on full-time drowning out the whistles from those in the stadium who had not already left the ground. Tactically, Real were all too predictable as most of their chances came from hopeful balls into the box. It has never been able to overcome this big of a gap and win La Liga. In football there are two teams, and what you must do is score a goal more than the opponent.

"Today was a hammer blow but we are going to turn things around on Thursday [at Leganes in the Copa del Rey]". Madrid have now played 18 this season but taken five fewer points. Just what is happening to this side in the dressing room?

'This is a bad run that won't stop and it is not good for my players.
