Real Madrid maintained their position at the top of La Liga on Saturday evening despite dropping points for just the second time this season.
Prior to the game against Villarreal, Real Madrid were in scintillating form, going unbeaten in all competitions from the start of the campaign.
Los Blancos had scored a remarkable 21 La Liga goals in just six matches to go top of the league, but they were held to a 0-0 draw for the first time in 2021/22.
Indeed, Madrid were restricted to just two shots on goal – something that Villarreal bettered despite being away from home.
As things stand, they are four points clear at the top of the table.
They were handed a favour earlier in the day by Atletico Madrid, too, as Diego Simeone’s side lost 1-0 away at Alaves, with Victor Laguardia scoring the only goal of the game early on.
Sevilla went down to 10 men at home versus Espanyol after Thomas Delaney receives two bookings, but they still ran out 2-0 winners versus Espanyol, with Youssef En-Nesryi and Rafa Mir getting on the scoresheet.
Valencia earned a point at the Mestalla against Athletic Bilbao thanks to a last-minute equaliser from Marcos de Sousa.
