Villarreal and Real Madrid to Draw

While Real Madrid is the leader in the league and certainly the better team on paper, we can see this game ending in a draw, just like three of the previous five h2h duels between these two teams.

After all, Villarreal is also a very good team, they are playing at home, and they are in good form with four wins in the last six games, while Real Madrid has slowed down a bit in the league and was also eliminated from Copa del Rey. So, a draw sounds like a realistic prediction.

Form, team news, and possible lineups for Villarreal vs Real Madrid

This is certainly a very anticipated game, so let's take a closer look at both teams before they meet on Saturday:


With four wins in their last six games in La Liga, Villarreal has done very well lately and thanks to that, they have climbed the standings to reach the sixth place for now. The Yellow Submarine is now just three points away from Atletico Madrid who's in fourth place, so they will have a chance to fight for a spot in the Champions League.

Ruben Pena and Francis Coquelin will miss this game through injuries, but another potential problem for Villarreal is the possible absence of Gerard Moreno who is dealing with a calf problem.

Villarreal predicted lineup:

Rulli – Foyth, Albiol, Torres, Pedraza – Parejo, Trigueros, Capoue – Chukwueze, Danjuma, A Moreno

Real Madrid

Although Real Madrid is still leading the league, they've slowed down a bit lately and allowed Sevilla to stay close to them. In the last six games in the league, Real Madrid has three wins, two draws, and one loss. More importantly, Real Madrid was eliminated from Copa del Rey by Athletic Bilbao in the quarter-finals, which was certainly disappointing for their fans.

The team will have to find a way to once again manage without Karim Benzema, along with Ferland Mendy who is also injured and out of this game. On top of that, Mariano Diaz is questionable for the game.

Real Madrid predicted lineup:

Courtois – Carvajal, Militao, Nacho, Alaba – Modric, Casemiro, Kroos – Asensio, Isco, Vinicius
