La Liga Spanish Football

Real Madrid drew 1 - 1 to Villarreal in a surprise result. Real Madrid were not as sharp as past games while Villarreal is a good team that pushed the home side tonight. Some of the local big names were below par like Cristiano Ronaldo & Bale, while Real Madrid also missed Modric & Casemiro out for this clash. 

The first goal came through a penalty that Villarreal Captain Bruno converted in the 45th min after Sergio Ramos hand-balled in the goal area. Previously to this Real Madrid lost Marcelo to injury.

Sergio Ramos made up for his "mistake" in the 47th min when he headed the equalizer goal from a corner. From here Real Madrid attempted to make a heroic effort to grab the 3 points but Villarreal held firm to secure the draw, especially a Sergio Asenjo save from a Morata header.

La Liga Soccer

The other Top Liga game between FC Barcelona & Atletico Madrid ended in a 1 - 1 draw. The first half went to Barça´s favour with more ball control & chances. It was FC Barcelona which scored first with a Ratikic header in the 40th min. 

The "moment" came when Messi was substituted injured. Barcelona lost momentum & Atletico brought on Fernando Torres & Correa. Both interchanged touches in the 60th min & Correa scored the equalizer

Both teams then attempted the winner but fell short.

Names to mention, Iniesta & Pique outstanding for Barça, while Neymar was non-existent. For Atletico the defenders Godin, Savic & Juan Fran were solid & excellent.
