Against all the odds, Cazorla battled his way back to first-team selection and the sheer joyful catharsis was evident when he opened the scoring against Real with just four minutes gone at the Estadio Ceramica...

Raphael Varane made it 2-1 for the visitors in the 20th minute with a downward header inside the box following a pin-point free-kick from Toni Kroos.

But it was former Arsenal midfielder Cazorla, who has overcome a awful run of injuries to resurrect his career in Spain, who had the final say.

Real Madrid lost Gareth Bale to injury during the game, something Solari felt "cost us".

"The result ended Madrid's three-game winning streak as they slipped seven points adrift of bitter rivals and leaders Barcelona".

Victory over Villarreal would put Real level with Sevilla in third place, though they have not won their first away game of a new year since 2014.

Spain Under-19 global Cristo has been called up to the first team following his impressive run of form with the club's Castilla side, where he's scored nine goals in 18 appearances.

Ballon d'Or victor Luka Modric, who helped set up the equaliser, followed Bale off the pitch midway through the second half.

Bale was substituted at half-time of Thursday's 2-2 draw at Villarreal after suffering an injury when his side were 2-1 up.

When asked if he thought he had a strong enough squad to compete in the Champions League, the Liga Santander and the King's Cup, he replied "everyone can speak about the players they have or don't have or those they don't need".

"I imagine that every game from now on will be a battle, a war to survive but hopefully we'll come through it, and this point gives us a big emotional boost".
