Former Arsenal Player, Santi Cazorla was left inconsolable on Sunday night after missing a penalty that would have lifted Villarreal out of the relegation zone.
Villarreal were narrowly defeated 2-1 away by Real Betis, leaving them 18th in La Liga with just seven matches remaining.
However, the visitors had a chance to grab an equaliser in the 89th minute from the penalty spot, with Cazorla the man to step up
But the former Arsenal man – the boyhood Villarreal star disappointingly saw his spot-kick saved, hitting his penalty straight down the throat of Betis goalkeeper Pau Lopez.
A draw would have taken Villarreal up to 17th place, one point above relegation rivals Valladolid. But instead, they slipped back into the relegation zone at a crunch point in what has been a very tough season.
And following the match, Cazorla was heartbreakingly left in floods of tears inside the stadium as one of Villarreal’s management staff tried to console the playmaker.
