Real Madrid Defender Marcelo: 'We Feel Like We Are Sinking'

Real Madrid's La Liga chances were effectively ended as Los Blancos fell to a 0-1 win at the Santiago Bernabeu as Villarreal won their first ever La Liga game away to Madrid. "We have to start gaining points once more".

Real Madrid left itself irresponsibly exposed while attacking at the other end, and only Dani Carvajal even feigned interest in defending the counter.

Las Palmas could have left the bottom of the standings with a draw but it never challenged at Montilivi Stadium, seeing its winless streak reach seven matches in all competitions.

"One gets used to winning everything, but when that isn't the case, it's not a good enough reason to want him out". Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is notorious for lacking patience when it comes to keeping managers after trophyless campaigns, and Zidane could be the latest one to fall prey to the policy.

Real controlled much of the first half, and had the first sight of goal on 17 minutes when Marcelo lashed a strike from distance which Sergio Asenjo turned away with a strong fingertip.

His players, however, were bright and purposeful from the beginning of this game, and were denied a goal when Bale was deemed to have drifted into an offside position when he nodded home Cristiano Ronaldo's headed assist following a corner. The Spaniard was unbeatable on the day.

The visitors were on the back foot for most of the half and they failed to test Los Blancos shot-stopper Keylor Navas.

Pablo Fornals netted Villarreal's victor in the 87th minute, prompting loud boos by the home crowd who three days ago saw their team draw with second-division club Numancia 2-2 in the Copa del Rey.

A counterattacking opportunity arose in the final moments, and the visitors took full advantage as Fornals chipped a rebound over Keylor Navas for the dramatic victor.

And with that, it was over.

Zidane's side's Champions League spot for next season is looking perilous - they now sit only one point above Villarreal, who move up to fifth.

To be unfair ... what the heck, Real Madrid?

But the result is final and it could be a final nail in Zidane's coffin. The loss in the Real Madrid vs Villarreal match shouldn't be his undoing, but it might.
