Fourth-placed Real Madrid, who won last season's La Liga title and the Champions League, remain 16 points behind leaders Barcelona - and that gap could increase when Barca visit Real Sociedad on Sunday (19:45 GMT).

The La Liga match between Real Madrid and Villarreal will be broadcast live on beIN Sports.

Karim Benzema remains a doubt, while Marcos Llorente will be sidelined after suffering a shoulder injury against Numancia and Sergio Ramos is still out with a muscle problem.

As for Villarreal, Manu Trigueros returned following a suspension, while Dani Raba supported Carlos Bacca in the final third of the field.

"Everything that is said about Real Madrid is negative, but in reality things are not like that".

Ronaldo almost scored from close range just before halftime, but his shot was brilliantly saved by goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo in a play in which the forward claimed to be pushed before he hit the ball.

Il Barcellona chiede 40 milioni per il riscatto
L'Inter, intanto, ha saputo che il ventiquattrenne si sta allenando con la squadra e vuole vederci chiaro. I nerazzurri avevano proposto un prestito gratuito con il riscatto a 20 milioni di euro piu' 3 di bonus.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale have combined for only eight goals.

Villarreal started the second period brightly and half-time substitute Denis Cheryshev fired wide on 47 minutes after taking advantage of some hesitant defending, before Kroos volleyed straight at Asenjo at the other end.

He made an even better stop to palm Ronaldo's 25-yard dipping free-kick over the top via the crossbar, before the Portugal captain wastefully dinked over Asenjo and wide of the left post after latching onto Luka Modric's throughball.

As far as is concerned, things are not as bad as they look for Real Madrid.

It did appear that the points would be shared at the Bernabeu, but Villarreal incredibly took the lead in the 87th minute when Fornals clipped over Navas after the Real Madrid goalkeeper got down low to keep out a strike from Cheryshev.
