Round 6 of Liga kicked off last night with the Elche & Celta de Vigo match. The encounter was settled when Celta forward Nolito scored in the 89th min.
Villarreal hosted Real Madrid & lost 0 - 2. The visitors started with Casillas & Benzema & curiously suffered defensively especially the first half hour. Seems the 4-3-3 set up is currently more vulnerable than the 4-4-2 system for Real Madrid.
Villarreal played well & put Real Madrid on the ropes but failed to materialize their goal chances which were many & varied. In the case of Real Madrid they maximized their opportunities with two individual pieces that came in the right moments. Modric shot from outside the box & scored in the 32nd min just when Villarreal were on a roll. Then Cristiano Ronaldo scored in the 40th min after a counter-attack that James Rodriguez started & Benzema took forward to set up his team-mate.
Two knock out punches, that was all that was needed.
