Isco was one of eight Real Madrid players to have a shot
Leaders Real Madrid and mid-table Villarreal continued their unbeaten starts to the La Liga season with a goalless draw at the Bernabeu.
Carlo Ancelotti's Real had scored 21 goals in their opening six La Liga games but rarely looked like scoring.
Karim Benzema's shot and Isco's deflected header were their only efforts Geronimo Rulli had to save.
Villarreal had fewer but better chances and Arnaut Danjuma twice forced Thibaut Courtois into a save.
Real are three points clear at the top - above Sevilla, who beat Espanyol 2-0, and defending champions Atletico Madrid, who lost 1-0 to Alaves.
This was Real's first goalless draw in La Liga under Ancelotti, in 83 games over two spells.
Unai Emery's Villarreal are 10th despite being unbeaten having drawn five of their six matches.
