The Whites, with a fantastic Diego López in goal, came from behind after the first goal from Cani and could have won if the referee had given a penalty for a clear foul on Di María (min. 79)..

Real Madrid earned a point away from home against Villarreal in a lively match and remain unbeaten since Ancelotti took charge of the club. As with the match against Betis on the first matchday of the league, the team had to come from behind again. Cani put the home side ahead, but Bale, who had an incredible debut, hauled his side level before the break after a great move by Carvajal. It was the visitors who took the lead in the second half after a stunning counterattack that Cristiano Ronaldo finished in the sixty-fourth minute and Giovani levelled the encounter six minutes later. Real Madrid could have won if Fernando Teixeira Vitienes had awarded a penalty for a clear foul on Di María inside the area in the seventy-ninth minute. Illarramendi also had a good debut and Diego López performed well in goal.

Real Madrid and Villarreal took centre stage at the El Madrigal in the only match to take place match on the fourth matchday in which both teams had won their last three matches in La Liga. The home side, who gained promotion the First Division this season, had shown in their previous matches that they intended their return to the top league to last some time. However, the visitors headed into the clash with the incentive of remaining unbeaten under Ancelotti and the official debuts of their new signings for the season: Bale and Illarramendi.

Villarreal, cheered on by their fans, who have high expectations due to their side’s results upon their return to the First Division, were dynamic and full of vigour. Their first warning shot was blocked by a magnificent save from Diego López to stop a point-blank shot from Aquino in the fourteenth minute. However, six minutes later the home side took the lead. Cani made the most of a rebound on the penalty spot to opening the scoring. Real Madrid had to come from behind and had seventy minutes to do so. Aquino had an opportunity to complicate matters, but once again the Real Madrid goalkeeper prevented them from scoring with a magnificent double stop in a one-on-one against the Mexican in the twenty-eighth minute.

While the Whites’ goalkeeper was magnificent, Asenjo’s save from a Ramos header that resulted from a corner in the thirty-second minute was also worthy of praise. Two minutes later, Cristiano Ronaldo could have levelled the encounter after a measured pass from the Whites’ captain from more than 30 metres to behind the home side’s defence, but his header went wide. The equaliser, however, came in the thirty-eighth minute and was scored by the debutant Gareth Bale. The move was worthy of a goal. A great combined effort by the Madrid players, passing in triangles until Carvajal, in one of his countless runs up the right wing, played a measured pass to Bale, who did not waste the assist and beat the home side’s goalkeeper with his right foot. All square and all to play for in the second half.

Bale was also prominent at the start of the second half. His shot from outside the penalty area in the forty-eighth minute caused Asenjo severe difficulty. The second half did not disappoint after the lively first half. The two teams went all out for the win and there was no time for speculation. Just when the first fifteen minutes was coming to an end, Ancelotti brought fresh legs onto the pitch, replacing the debutants, Illarramendi and Bale, with Khedira and Di María. The Italian was right to do so because four minutes later his team took the lead in a stunning counterattack that Cristiano Ronaldo finished. The comeback had been completed, now it was time to back up the work that had been done so far in order to continue the winning streak in the championship.

However, it was not to be as Giovani levelled the encounter after making the most of the rebound from a great save from Diego López to stop a Cani shot in the seventieth minute. The tension could be cut with a knife with just over twenty minutes left, but, despite both teams having chances and Fernando Teixeira Vitienes not awarding a penalty for a clear foul on Di María inside the area in the seventy-ninth minute, the game was to see no more goals. The Whites remain unbeaten.
