Villarreal coach Javier Calleja buzzing after Real Madrid shock

Villarreal coach Javier Calleja feels Champions League qualification is on after their shock win at Real Madrid.

Pablo Fornals netted late on to earn the visitors a 1-0 win.

"I don't think it's impossible to reach the Champions League," Calleja said after the game.

"If we take things match by match, I think it can be achieved, though the four teams are very powerful and they will be fighting until the end."

Ensuring a debut win in the white half of the Spanish capital was clearly a source of great pride.

"Whenever you add three points from such a difficult fixture, you feel great," he cotinued.

"We're very happy to have won here but we knew we could make history.

"Despite the age of many players, they have shown a lot of maturity."
