Also it is Villarreal’s second ever win at the iconic home of the league champions.

Chukwueze bagged his third goal against Madrid this season (two in LaLiga and one in Copa Del Rey).

The Super Eagles forward is the second
Villarreal player to score a brace in LaLiga at the Santiago Bernabéu against Real Madrid, after Diego Forlán in May 2006.

The defeat is a huge blow to Madrid’s title hopes as they (On 59 points) are now 12 points behind leaders Barcelona.

For Villarreal, they move up to fifth place on 47 points and just four points off fourth spot.

Madrid took the lead in the 16th minute following an own goal by Pau Torres.

Chukwueze drew Villarreal level on 39 minutes. He received a pass inside the box, beat Nacho with a body swerve before slotting past Thibaut Courtois.

Three minutes into the second half Vinicius Junior made it 2-1 to Madrid but Morales equalised for Villarreal on 70 minutes.

And in the 80th minute Chukwueze sealed the win for Villarreal, as he curled the ball from the edge of the box into the far top corner.

And in France, Terem Moffi fired blanks as Nice lost 2-0 at home to Paris Saint-Germain.

Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos were the scorers for PSG who (69 points) open a six points gap on Lens.
