Villarreal faces Real Madrid at the Estadio de la Ceramica in a game from the 24th round of La Liga. Our football prediction site will try to offer you the best possible preview for this match. Here we go!
Villarreal still dream of reaching the Top 4 and eventually qualifying to the Champions League again. At this moment the Yellow Submarine is 6th in the standings with 35 points – just 3 points behind the 4th Barcelona. Unai Emery’s team needs to make a push if they want to fulfil their ambitions in this regard.
The Europa League winners won their last two games in the league. In the previous round Villarreal had a tough test against Real Betis in Seville, but they managed to take this one. Pau Torres opened the score at the end of the first half while Etienne Capoue scored the decisive second goal.
Real Madrid are in pole position to win the title, but they are also aware they need to keep winning. Right now Los Blancos are 6 points ahead of Sevilla – that’s not a bad gap, but it’s still not enough to secure the gold medals.
In their last match Carlo Ancelotti’s boys achieved a surprisingly tough win against Granada at home. Santiago Bernabeu had to wait until the 74th to see Real Madrid scoring the winner. It was Marco Asensio who became the hero with his strike. For the winger it was his 6th goal in La Liga since the start of the season.
Ferland Mendy and Mariano Diaz remain sidelined in Real Madrid’s team. They are currently not available to the manager Ancelotti.
That’s what our football prediction site can give you as a preview of the La Liga match between Villarreal and Real Madrid. Surely for the leaders it won’t be an easy one – Villarreal are one of the toughest teams in the league. Let’s wait and see how this one will go.
