First half Danjuma was rampant in tormenting Real Madrid. 13 minutes in the Dutchman dribbles past 2 defenders and cut onto his right foot. He sent a curling shot only to be saved by Courtois.

38 minutes the new signing for Villarreal was at it again. The ball came across. Alcacer flicked the ball on to Danjuma on the left side. Drifting out wide he sent a strong shot towards the left side of the goal.

Villarreal have not beaten Madrid since 2018

, Emery would be hoping to change this in the second half after a dominant first half for the Yellow Submarine.

Madrid began to assure their authority in the second half. Extreme opposite to the first half. 50 minutes in Asensio sent in a curling freekick. Militao with a thundering header that goes just wide of the goal.

57 minutes came Villarreal first chance of the second half. Foyth flicks the ball into the box, Alcacer just clips the ball wide following a right footed shot towards the goal.

Madrid’s best chance on the match came in 64th minute. Ever present Benzema sent a left footed shot towards the bottom corner. Rulli pulled of a world beating save to keep the game level.

The final 4 minutes of extra time were In Madrid’s favour but Villarreal held out as the look to take Manchester United in the next match of the Champions League.
