Chukwueze was in the area as Gerard Moreno scored his penalty against Real Madrid

Gerard Moreno scored an 84th-minute penalty to secure a 1-1 draw for Villarreal at home to Real Madrid on Saturday afternoon, but it should have been retaken as Samu Chukwueze was inside the area as the striker hit the ball.

When Real Madrid faced Valencia away from home in the last matchday, the first of the three penalties Los Che had saw a similar situation. Carlos Soler took the kick, it was saved by Thibaut Courtois and then Yunus Musah scored the rebound. However, as Yunus and Lucas Vazquez were both inside the area, the penalty kick was retaken and Soler scored.

Although referee Alejandro Hernandez Hernandez made clear to the players that no one should step inside the area, neither he nor those in the VAR room saw Chukwueze step inside.
