Victory for Unai Emery's Villarreal would have seen them overtake Real Sociedad at the top of the table, while Madrid had the chance to move up two places to second. Los Blancos dropped more points in LaLiga Santander in a 1-1 draw against Villarreal on Saturday.

The games will be broadcast live on StarTimes football channels.

Villarreal protested the goal as the linesman had momentarily flagged for offside against Lucas Vazquez, who never made contact with the ball, and Dani Carvajal picked it up before crossing to Mariano.

Villarreal went searching for a victor and nearly found one through Japanese teenager Takefusa Kubo, who is on loan from Madrid, but Courtois stood firm to make the save.

The equaliser eventually came on 76 minutes as Madrid gave away another penalty, having conceded three in their last match against Valencia.

Chukwueze was fouled inside the box by Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois in the 75th minute with Gerard Moreno netting the spot -kick a minute later.

Zinedine Zidane spoke in the press room of the Estadio de la Ceramica after the match between Villarreal and Real Madrid. "We deserved more for the effort in the first half".
