Real Madrid vs Villarreal: Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips

Real Madrid vs Villarreal
Spanish La Liga 2016/17
Date: Wednesday, 21 September 2016
Kick-Off: 19:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernebeu, Madrid.

Real Madrid edge past Espanyol on the weekend to register their 16th straight win in Spanish La Liga. With 12 points from 4 league matches this season, they are currently top of the table at a 3 point gap with Barcelona and a 6 points gap against city rivals Atletico. Zidane has some headaches as both Ronaldo and Bale are yet to hit full fitness and remains a doubt for the mid-week fixture against Villarreal.

While the Yellow Submarines hold on to their unbeaten record this season after earning a narrow 2-1 win against Real Sociedad on Sunday. It wasn’t a very convincing display from Fran Escriba’s men but he will be fairly satisfied with the points. Villarreal will start the match sitting at 6th on the league with 2 wins and 2 draws from their 4 matches so far.

Real Madrid vs Villarreal: Head-to-Head Stats

Real Madrid are on a 15 unbeaten run at home against Villarreal in competitive matches. The Blancos won 3-0 in the corresponding fixture at Bernebeu last season. While they lost the away leg at Villarreal 1-0.

Real Madrid vs Villarreal: Prediction

Villarreal are one of the few sides in Spanish League other than Barcelona and Atletico that have avoided heavy defeats hammering from Real in the recent seasons. They have also managed a win and a draw in two of their last four matches against Real.

With Ronaldo and Bale still major doubts, the visitors could make life hard for the Los Blancos on Wednesday night. But I believe whichever side Zidane put out there for the mid-week clash, they have enough quality to see this games through.

Real Madrid were leading at half time in 13 of the last 15 wins and this is my pick of the bet for this fixture.
