Real Madrid and Villarreal battled to a scoreless draw in the La Liga match at Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.

Both teams ran out of ideas and produced limited opportunities, with hosts Madrid relying on Thibaut Courtois’ solid goalkeeping to hold the visitors at bay.

It was disappointing for the spectators, as clear-cut chances were increasingly rare, and both teams were poor in the final third.

Villareal’s winger Arnaut Danjuma seemed the most likely to score for the visitors, prompting Thibaut Courtois into a couple of fine saves in either half.

Real Madrid’s defender Eder Militao headed a Marco Asensio free-kick over after the interval as they battled to get a breakthrough. Villarreal goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli denied a combination of Isco and Vinicius Junior as Unai Emery’s side hung on for a point.

Madrid leads the standings with 17 points after seven games, three points ahead of city rivals Atletico, and Sevilla, who has a game in hand. Meanwhile, Villarreal, the defending Europa League champions, sit at mid-table with only 10 points.

Juan Foyth is the Man of the Match tonight with his solid performance at the back.
