Real Madrid vs Villarreal Preview


Real Madrid have won nine of their last 10 home matches but face a tricky test here. Villarreal have stabilised since Marcelino’s return and can score in the Spanish capital, but Los Blancos should have too much strength and emerge victorious.

Stats


  • Real Madrid have won 9 of their last 10 home matches.
  • Real Madrid have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 4 matches.
  • Real Madrid have seen BTTS in 10 of their last 12 matches against Villarreal.
  • Villarreal have seen BTTS in their last 5 away matches.

Head to Head


Real Madrid have a 27-6 advantage against Villarreal with 16 draws in 49 matches.

Real Madrid Form


Real Madrid have won six of their last seven matches with 21 goals scored. They ended November by beating Napoli 4-2 in the Champions League.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side remained at home with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Granada. They then gave up top spot in La Liga after a 1-1 draw at Real Betis, a deserved result after Jude Bellingham gave them the lead.

Los Blancos are coming off a 3-2 win at Union Berlin which made it six wins in the Champions League group stage. They were 1-0 down before Joselu scored twice, allowing the German club to equalise before Dani Ceballos netted a late winner.

Real Madrid Injuries


Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois remains out injured alongside defender Éder Militão.

Midfielders Aurélien Tchouaméni and Eduardo Camavinga and forward Vinícius Júnior has a muscle injury.

Villarreal Form


Villarreal had a poor start to the season which saw Quique Setién sacked. Pacheta became the new boss, lasting just 12 games in charge before Marcelino returned to the club.

Marcelino has had seven games in charge, going undefeated in his first five before a 3-0 defeat against Real Sociedad. They had 2.37-2.20 expected goals and can consider themselves unlucky.

Villarreal are coming off a dramatic 3-2 win at Rennes in the Europa League which saw them snatch top spot in Group F. Gerard Moreno scored and assisted in a man of the match performance.

Villarreal Injuries


Attacking midfielder Denis Suárez, winger Yéremy Pino and striker Alexander Sorloth are all battling injuries.

Verdict

Real Madrid are strong at home but Villarreal have been hard to beat since Marcelino’s return. I am backing BTTS here with Los Blancos’ superior strength up front to make the difference.
