Villarreal vs Real Madrid
Villarreal left it late but claimed all three points at home against Valencia on their return from the World Cup break. That win keeps them very much in the hunt for European places as they are 7th on the log, on 24 points, just three shy of 4th placed Atletico. Coach Quique Setien was pleased with the result and will be hoping to maintain their impressive form at home this season where they are yet to taste defeat in the league (4W, 1D).
Real Madrid also had a late show of their own against Real Valladolid with a Benzema double in the final 10 minutes of the much giving them a much-needed 2-0 win that saw them move level with Barcelona with 39 points at the top of the table with an identical record 12 wins, 2 draws and just 1 loss for the season. They will be looking to go on a strong run to try and shake them off in their quest to defend their title.
This is a critical game for both teams as they set about their individual ambitions. It’s been incredibly close between them in recent years with both of their games last season ending in goalless stalemates. We expect another close one here and we are picking Under 2.5 Goals as our main tip
Predictions: Under 2.5 Goals & Real Madrid win.
