  3. Post update

    So just one point separated Spain's top three teams ahead of tonight's matches...and one point still separates them. Anyone dare predict a winner? It's a four-game sprint to the finish...

  5. FULL-TIME

    Real Madrid 3-0 Villarreal

    Job done. Real Madrid, after seeing Barca romp past Deportivo and Atleti sneak past Athletic Bilbao, keep pace with the leaders.

    Real Madrid 3-0 Villarreal

    Time for one last Villarreal attack, they have a free-kick about 25 yards out. Léo Baptistão is clumsily hacked down by Marcelo, but the set piece is worked out wide right and the cross is plucked out of the gloomy Madrid sky by Keylor Navas. And that should be that.

    Three minutes of stoppage time. Cristiano Ronaldo has already had enough...he's strolled off the pitch and down the tunnel. Probably wants first dibs on the bath.

    Real Madrid 3-0 Villarreal

    With the game won and the weather wet, many Madridistas are scarpering from the Bernabeu. Madrid knocking the ball around with ease, not much urgency to bag a third.

    Real Madrid 3-0 Villarreal

    Villarreal have a shot on target! Keylor Navas has hardly got his gloves dirty tonight, but is called into action as the game ticks into the final five. Denis Suarez's 25-yard free-kick has the direction, not the power. Easy save.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Real Madrid 3-0 Villarreal

    Zidane makes his final substitution of the evening, goalscorer Lucas Vazquez the man trudging off. He can be pretty smug about his night's work. Jese is his replacement.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Real Madrid 3-0 Villarreal

    Huge standing ovation for Luka Modric when he is withdrawn for the final 10 minutes or so. On trots James Rodriguez.

    Real Madrid 3-0 Villarreal

    Pumped-up Cristiano Ronaldo is that vain he probably has a photo of himself in his wallet. He treats the Bernabeu to a glimpse of his ripped torso as he changes shirt on the touchline. No clear reason why he's swapping shirts, other than to get his bod out.

  14. GOAL - Real Madrid 3-0 Villarreal

    Luka Modric (76 mins)

    If the result was still in any doubt... Luka Modric seals the Real deal, sliding in to meet Danilo's drilled right-wing cross. Pretty much what Madrid have deserved. Villarreal have 15 minutes to avoid an embarrassment...

    Real Madrid 2-0 Villarreal

    Isco almost makes an instant impact. The Spain attacking midfielder has loads of time to curl into the bottom corner when the ball pings about the Villarreal box, but shanks his effort straight at Sergio Ramos. He's offside. Villarreal survive.

  16. SUBSTITUTION

    Real Madrid 2-0 Villarreal

    Time for a tactical tweak from Zizou. Zidane lets Toni Kroos have a breather, Isco coming on in his place.

  17. Post update

    Real Madrid 2-0 Villarreal

    So where are we in the Spanish title race? Real Madrid are coasting towards moving back within a point of Barca and Atletico. Four games left after tonight's action. Tight.

  18. GOAL - Real Madrid 2-0 Villarreal

    Lucas Vazquez (69 mins)

    Madrid's patience pays off! Young forward Lucas Vazquez is rewarded for a bright display with a goal. The Spaniard collects a neat return pass from Karim Benzema, before burying a low shot into the bottom corner. That's Madrid's 100th goal in La Liga this season.

    Real Madrid 1-0 Villarreal

    Madrid totally in control here, just need a second to extinguish any Villarreal hopes of a shock. Marcel probes down the left, then goes back inside as Luka Modric sends the ball out to the other flank. But Danilo shanks his cross out for a goal-kick, Cristiano Ronaldo boots the base of the post in disgust.
