BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Saturday afternoon, Villarreal and Real Madrid go head-to-head at the Estadio de la Ceramica, in a potentially vital game at the business end of La Liga.
Unai Emery’s team are now very much back in the picture for a top-four spot in La Liga this season. A superb 2-0 win at in-form Real Betis last time out in the Spanish top-flight followed a 3-0 home win over Mallorca.
The back-to-back wins have been enough to move the Yellow Submarine up to sixth place in La Liga’s table, just three points adrift of fourth-place Barcelona, who also have a game in hand on the home team.
Villarreal have a good recent home record in the Spanish top-flight, as they have now won six of their last eight league matches at the Ceramica.
Los Blancos are now firm favourites to win the Spanish title this season after establishing a six-point lead over Sevilla at the top of La Liga. Carlo Ancelotti’s team has been slightly underwhelming at times in recent games. However, a 1-0 home win over Granada last time out in La Liga means that the visitors have won ten of their last 13 league matches.
Real Madrid have a stellar away record in La Liga, having won five of their last six away matches. A 1-0 defeat against city rivals Getafe in their last away game ended a five-game winning run on their travels in the Spanish top-flight.
