Madrid now have just one win in five LaLiga games and will be 19 points off the top if Barcelona beat Real Sociedad on Sunday, but defender Nacho insists the team are giving all they have.

Villarreal had gone into the Bernabeu and came out winners, jumping up to fifth place in La Liga, a point behind Real Madrid (at least for the moment).

However, it was the visitors who broke the deadlock with three minutes remaining when Navas pushed Cheryshev's effort into the path of Pablo Fornals, who made no mistake from close range.

Javi Calleja, Villarreal's manager, spoke to the press after his side's historic victory at the Santiago Bernabéu on Saturday afternoon against Real Madrid. In the second half, we grew and started to play really intelligently. The potential Real Madrid have is extraordinary, we had to find superiorities and support.

Cristiano Ronaldo was out of sorts as Real toiled in the rain at the Bernabeu, and the forward was left aggrieved when he was denied a penalty after a trip from Mario Gaspar late in the first half.

Despite all the chances for Real Madrid, Villarreal had a few itself, taking 10 shots four on target.

"It might be a mental aspect that is stopping us from winning", Zidane added.

After winning the Champions League in back-to-back seasons, and three times in four years, it feels somewhat silly to cast aspersions on Real Madrid's domestic form, especially when the club won La Liga a mere eight months ago.

On Friday, Zidane hit out against the "negative coverage" of his side, claiming he saw lots of positives, but 24 hours later, his team were just as bad again.

It was against Madrid back in February a year ago that Asenjo's knees betrayed him just as he had broken back into the Spanish national team. What once seemed like admirable loyalty in proven stars who had done the job for him before now looks more like blind faith in ageing players.
