Espanyol secure point at Villarreal

Villarreal and Espanyol played out a goalless stalemate at La Ceramica, in a game dominated by two goalkeepers.

The home side’s Mariano Barbosa and Espanyol’s Pau Lopez both impressed in a game where despite both teams mustering a combined 24 attempts, no goals were scored.

The Yellow Submarine had won three consecutive games in all competitions going into the encounter but were frustrated by the well-drilled Catalans, who are now unbeaten in two outings.

Villarreal move up to 9th, while Espanyol are now 16th in the early La Liga standings.
