WATCH: Real Madrid fall behind against Villarreal in Copa del Rey tie

Real Madrid has struggled for form so far this year, having already lost twice this month. Sunday’s disappointing Spanish Super Cup victory against Barcelona in Riyadh was a very poor performance by Carlo Ancelotti’s side, and they would have hoped to bounce back against Villarreal this evening.

However, Los Blancos have had the worst possible start to the match, having gone behind after just four minutes. Gerard Moreno played in French midfielder Etienne Capoue, and his strike from inside the penalty area flew beyond Thibaut Courtois.

Having already lost to the Yellow Submarine this month, Real Madrid could be set for another defeat to Quique Setien’s side this evening.

Los Blancos haven’t won away to Villarreal since 2017, but Ancelotti will be desperate to put that statistic to bed as he looks to progress to the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey. However, it won’t be easy having gone behind so early.

  1. Benzemas terrible pass to Rodrygo on 24th minute in that 3on2 situation just highlights the problems surrounding his performances right now.
    He falls back to deep to build up play. Were constantly one man short in attack.

      1. 89th minute misses a clear one on one to seal the game.

        Look when media still gives him highest grades tonight, since its obvious they dont even watch games anymore.

    1. Oh look the microbe who goes under the name of daryl is back this time under another name.
      Your posts are radiating st.pidity and its thusly easy to distinguish writer regardless of name.

      Did you enjoy the remontada? Nothing better when you get your hopes up and RM comes back and youve wasted 90 minutes watching the game in vain.

      Havent seen you last 7 years (due to obvious lack of success lool) and its sort of a small club mentalty to crawl forth from a rock after finally winning one title.
      But given the fact that barcELona arent a big club anymore with being stuck in EL with other lesser clubs, it only makes perfect sense, doesnt it?
