Villarreal vs Real Madrid Preview

Villarreal vs Real Madrid

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio de la Cerámica

Date: 19th May 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

This game offers both sides an opportunity to end their domestic season on a high as both have had varying degrees of success locally.

Villarreal come into this game with an impressive record of 18 wins, 6 draws and 13 losses in 5th position with Europa League football also guaranteed.

Their home record is impressive with 11 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, while away from home they will end the season with 7 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses.

The Yellow Submarines will enter this game with a great deal of confidence having won 4 of their last five games and collected points from 5 of their last six matches prior to this game.

They netted four against Deportivo La Coruna in their last league game, and the likes of Carlos Bacca who has 15 goals this season will be looking to lead them to another win against their illustrious opponents here.

Real Madrid come into this game having surrendered their La Liga crown to Barcelona, however, they have impressively won 22 games, drew 9 and lost just 6 all season.

Away from home, Los Blancos were winners on ten occasions, drew 5 and lost just 3.

They have rested some star men in their recent games as they look to win the Champions League for the third year running when they face off against Liverpool next weekend, yet they come into this game off the back of a 6-0 mauling of Celta Vigo with Gareth Bale scoring twice.

Madrid have scored at least two goals in 5 of their last 6 games, and their average goals scored away from home this season in 2.1.

Christiano Ronaldo may be given a run out here after he returned to full training this week and he would be eager to add to the 25 goals he has already scored this season.
