[Video] Villarreal 2-3 Real Madrid [HighLights]
Despite falling two goals behind in the second half, Los Blancos’ stormed all the way back to take a much-needed win on the road
Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo bought Real Madrid back from a two-goal deficit, and Alvaro Morata closed the deal with a late winner as Los Blancos took a 3-2 result against Villarreal to climb back to the top of La Liga.
Manu Trigueros and Cedric Bakambu had Villarreal two goals to the good just after the interval, but Bale’s strike on 64 minutes started the comeback, with Ronaldo hitting from the 10 minutes later and Morata heading home the winner in the 83rd.
A chipped pass from Adrian flies towards the far post and finds Castillejo, who immediately nods the ball down to Trigueros. The midfielder is in a pocket of space and immediately fires a thumping shot past Navas and into the bottom left-hand corner of the net.
The Madrid defence is split open by a great pass from Bruno, who picks out Bakambu and sets up the striker to fire a brilliant strike into the bottom left-hand corner of the net. What a few minutes for Villarreal.
A nice move from the visitors ends with a lovely Carvajal cross being fired right on to the head of Bale, who then beats Fernandez with a well-placed downward header.
After plenty of arguing and pushing, which results in Fran Escriba being sent to the stands, Ronaldo steps up and fires a brilliant strike into the left-hand side of the goal to equalise for Madrid. The Villarreal players and fans are still going crazy!
Marcelo picks up the ball over on the left flank and swings a beautiful cross right on to the head of Morata, who rises high above Ruiz and sends a bullet header into the the back of the net. What a comeback!
