Real Madrid lost 2–1 to Villarreal and missed an opportunity to put pressure on leaders Barcelona in the race for the La Liga title.
Jeremiah Pino put Villarreal ahead early in the second half, but Madrid striker Karim Benzema equalized from the penalty spot an hour later.
Shortly afterwards, Villarreal regained the lead when Gerardo Moreno scored from Madrid defender David Alaba’s handball penalty.
The result keeps Madrid in second place, level on points with Barça, who face Atlético Madrid on Sunday.
