Real Madrid vs Villarreal Prediction and Betting Preview 16 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Real Madrid vs Villarreal PredictionWith the Spanish La Liga entering its final stretches, Real Madrid are moving ever closer to clinching their first league title since 2017. The 2016/2017 season is one that will live long in the memories of the club supporters.
Match status: 2019/20 La Liga - Matchweek 37
Venue: Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium (Madrid)
Asserting their dominance in every single game they played, Los Blancos easily conquered Spain and indeed Europe, with legendary striker Cristiano Ronaldo topping the goalscoring charts. Under the tutelage of Zinedine Zidane, they lifted a whopping four trophies that season.

Ever since, Real Madrid have struggled to achieve league success, with archrivals Barcelona pipping them to the title in subsequent years. However, Los Merengues look a side on a massive mission this time around – bringing the La Liga trophy to Madrid.

They have been utterly ruthless this term, miles ahead of defending champions Barcelona in quality and consistency. They sit atop the league standings and are whiskers off of league success. Four points clear of the Blaugrana with two games left to play, Zidane’s charges are a win shy of the league title.

With Villarreal coming around town this Thursday, expect a spirited performance from Real Madrid as they look to clinch maximum points to secure that single piece of silverware that has eluded them for about four years now.

Real Madrid vs Villarreal Team News

Following a slow start to the campaign, Real Madrid’s club president Fiorentino Perez looked to three-time Champions League winner Zinedine Zidane to spark his stuttering side into life. Though criticized at first, this turned out to be a smart move as Los Blancos consequently hit top gear.

Entertaining pressure from reigning champions Barcelona in second place, Real Madrid made a trip to Estadio Los Carmenes, seeking to sweep stubborn Granada aside. Tipped as favorites for victory, Los Blancos made sure of the three points.

A flying start from Real Madrid saw them roar to a 2-0 lead just inside 16 minutes, courtesy of goals from Mendy and Benzema. Granada soon took control of the game, pulling one back in the 50th minute. However, the hosts could not muster an equalizer and were forced home empty-handed.
In the driving seat for Europa League qualification, Villarreal needed a win against Real Sociedad to steer further away from the chasing pack. Gunning for continental qualification as well, the Whites and Blues were in dire need of points here.

Turning in their best performance since the league restart, Real Sociedad managed to topple the Yellow Submarines to bag some much-needed three points. The Whites and Blues appeared positive right from start and never really looked losing. 2-1 it ended in favor of Sociedad.

For the fixture, Real Madrid have to be considered favorites for the win. They have won every single game post-lockdown and are three points away from clinching the league title. The players will head onto the pitch, knowing fully well that a win will see them displace Barcelona as league champions.

They are on a nine-game winning run, conceding only one goal in their previous four games on home turf. Also, they have scored no less than two goals in seven of their last nine home fixtures, highlighting their supremacy at the Santiago Bernabeu.
