Real Stumble Again in Title Race

Real Madrid failed to take advantage of Barcelona’s slip-up as they fell 1-0 to Villareal on Sunday.

Spain Soccer La Liga

Rafael Benitez’s men had the chance to move within two points of Barcelona, following the Catalan’s shock 2-2 home draw against Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday, but Real couldn’t gain any ground- stumbling to their third defeat of the season.

Villareal got off to a quick start- taking the lead courtesy Roberto Soldado; and while Real improved in the second half, the home side held on to move to within two points of Saturday’s visitors.

Elsewhere, Antoine Griezmann scored the winner as Atletico Madrid came from behind to beat Atletic Bilbao and go level on points with Barcelona on top of the table, while Gary Neville’s unconvincing start to life as Valencia manager continued with a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Eibar.
