La Liga: Villarreal vs Real Madrid preview, team news, prediction and tips
February 11


Villarreal and Real Madrid will face off in the La Liga matchday 24 at Estadio de la Ceramica on Saturday. The kick-off is at 17:15 CEST.


Both Villarreal and Madrid enjoyed successful returns from the winter break with Unai Emery's beating top-four challengers Betis and Carlo Ancelotti's side defeating Granada 1-0 last Sunday. Even though it's the Yellow Submarine who are only sixth in the Spanish top flight table while the Blanocos are leading the standings 18 points ahead of Emery's crop, Villarreal are now on a two-game winning run in La Liga. Madrid, on the other hand, were held to a 2-2 draw by Elche in the league on January 23 before getting eliminated from the Spanish Cup at the hands of Athletic Bilbao (1-0) last Thursday.

Team news

Ruben Pena and Francis Coquelin are two only confirmed injury absentees in the hosts' squad while it remains to be seen if Lucas Vazquez and Karim Benzema will be given the green light to feature on the weekend given their respective injury woes and the upcoming clash with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday.


As mentioned, Madrid will certainly be thinking about the forthcoming clash with PSG when they travel to Estadio de la Ceramica on Saturday. Tuesday's visit to Paris also means that Ancelotti could even rotate his starting XI a bit against the Yellow Submarine to rest the likes of Modric and Vinicius for the Parisians. Moreover, Villarreal have managed three draws in their last five head-to-head meetings with Madrid, including a goalless stalemate in the reverse fixture at the Bernabeu in September. Therefore, we don't really expect a goal fest taking place between the two this time around.
