Real Madrid vs Villarreal Prediction & Match Preview

Real Madrid vs Villarreal
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Sunday, 5th May 2019
Kick-off at 15.15 UK/ 16.15 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabéu (Madrid).

Real Madrid has nothing but pride left to play for. They were booted out of all cup competitions, and eternal rivals Barcelona has already secured the league. On top of that, Barca is on track for a treble.

Madrid really needs to finish this season on a high note and come back incredibly stronger next year.

Zinedine Zidane, who returned as the manager has quite a task at hand. Against Villarreal, at home, he has no option but to deliver, despite standing safe in the points table.

The visitors maybe still within range of catch-up by the relegation line but is practically safe from it. As such the team is not forced to go for a win, but still, the team might fancy a win against the Los Blancos.

Real Madrid vs Villarreal Prediction

As it’d be expected, Real has dominated Villarreal for far too long. They have recorded 23 of the last 27 h2h wins, and 13 of the last 14 at this venue.

While Real is comparatively weaker to last seasons, they are still a force to be reckoned with. On top of that, they are at the Bernabeu and is about to conclude their season. The Whites will surely want to deliver a huge win for their fans.

But Villarreal smells blood. It’s not every day that they can pull a win over this club, at their hallowed ground. The team will try their best to inflict a loss upon the three-time Champions of Europe.

As such, while we count on the hosts to win, there’s little chance the team will keep a clean sheet. Moreover, 11 of the last 16 clashes had goals at either end of the pitch, and so did 10 of the last 15 at this venue.
