Real Madrid Miss Chance To Top Table With Villareal Loss

REAL Madrid slipped to just a second La Liga defeat of the season as they missed the chance to go back to the top of the table by losing at Villarreal.

Yeremy Pino put the hosts ahead but a dubious handball call against Juan Foyth allowed Karim Benzema to level.

Foyth then won a penalty of his own at the other end as David Alaba handled and Gerard Moreno slotted the winner.

Real remain second, level on points with leaders Barcelona, who visit Atletico Madrid on Sunday.

Villarreal climb to fifth after a deserved third successive win, having created the better chances throughout an entertaining affair Estadio de la Ceramica.
