Real Madrid v Villareal
Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid
09th April, 12:30 a.m.
It’s undoubtedly the pick of the LaLiga matches this weekend as Villarreal travel to the Bernabeu to face second placed Real Madrid.
The Los Blancos have been on top form since a shift to the 4231 formation. They have scored 10 goals in their last 2 matches in all competitions, including 4 against fierce rivals FC Barcelona a few days back. Their main man Benzema has scored back to back hattricks across these two matches and he will be expecting to add to his tally of 14 league goals this season. Although Real Madrid are without a win in the last four games against Villarreal, Ancelotti’s side will be expecting to turn it around with the second best home record this season – racking up 31 points in 13 games.
Villarreal, on the other hand have been on a good run of form themselves in their last two matches. Currently sitting sixth on the table, the Yellow Submarines will be looking to further enhance their chances of getting a top four finish with a win against Real Madrid after their win against the fourth placed Real Sociedad last weekend. Having won the reverse fixture against Carlo Ancelotti’s men, Villarreal will be optimistic of a positive result despite the quality of their opponents. Also, with the league out of reach, Real Madrid could rotate the squad with an eye on the UCL tie midweek.
