Three days after sweeping Mallorca with a resounding six, Real Madrid dropped last night (Saturday) a streak of four wins in the Spanish league at the end of a 0-0 home draw against Villarreal.

For the first time in the 2021/22 season, the Blancos finished a game without scoring after six rounds in which they scored no less than 21 rounds.



"Real Madrid got stuck against a great Villarreal," concluded in "Marca" 90 minutes in which the guest in the yellow was better than the team of Carlo Ancelotti.

The one who prevented the table leader from recording a debut loss this season was Thibaut Courtois, who thwarted the opponent's outstanding opportunities and kept a clean sheet for the 100th time in his career in Spain.

Overall, the Belgian enjoyed a great period and stopped 23 of the last 27 kicks towards his goal.

"It's a bit of a bitter taste, because at home you have to win," Courtois admitted at the end, regretting that Real did not take advantage of Atletico Madrid's loss to escape to the top.

"If a direct opponent loses, you want to score three points. Villarreal are a good team, we could not bring the intensity that was against Mallorca and they got into better situations, we did not produce such."



The goalkeeper also implicitly criticized referee Chail Mansano, who according to Courtois should have whistled for a penalty after Albiol's foul on Nacho in the box: "The whole world says he was Paul, don't know if off the box or inside. "You know where he refereed last week and he made a lot of noise there. He let play too much and did not want to take a risk," said the Belgian in allusion to the conduct of the Mansano Corps in the meeting between Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid in the fifth round.

Ancelotti, for his part, claimed he did not see Pendel. The Italian coach, who finished 0-0 for only the third time as Real Madrid coach and first in the Spanish league, concluded: "It is not a step back, but a step forward because we continue at the top and that is good. I am not sad because the team fought and tried to do what it took to Win".



Ancelotti added: "We did not make the best game this season. What interests me is that their pressure is hard on us. Courtois? Great luck that we have a goalkeeper like him. Milito and Alaba were good too, we kept a clean sheet and we move on. A draw against Villarreal That is something that can happen. "



The frustrating evening for Blancos president Florentino Perez continued even after the game. Leaving the Santiago Bernabeu, Peres was involved in a minor car accident, from which he escaped unharmed. Also, according to reports in Madrid, the president was asked by one of the fans when Killian Ambape would sign with the team and replied emphatically: "He will play for us next season."
