The first big chance in the second half was for Villarreal. After Toni Kroos lost the ball, Manu Trigueros gave a good pass to Moreno, who saw his cross bet just go down the wrong side of the post. Unai Emery’s team continued to search diligently for the 1-1. A shot from Samu Chukwueze went over and a powerful effort from Parejo lacked precision. On the other side of the field, Pau Torres narrowly diverted a bet by Vázquez.
Fifteen minutes before time, Real Madrid had to believe it. Courtois took down Chukwueze in the penalty area and was then passed by Moreno from eleven meters.
