Villarreal vs Real Madrid Betting Tips

Villarreal welcomes the league leaders Real Madrid to their stadium for their 24th La Liga game of the season. Villarreal is within touching distance to the top 4, and this is one match they’d not love to lose.

Real Madrid has been topping the La Liga table almost all season, though they looked to be slowing down in their last 5 games. 

Villarreal has been on a winning run in their last two games but will they be able to continue on this record against Real Madrid? We don’t know yet, but here is the team news and tips for this game.

Villarreal Form and Team News

In their recent games, Villarreal has been in good form, losing only one match to Elche (1-0),  drawing against struggling Atletico Madrid (2-2) and having won 3. They are currently placed 6th in La Liga as the reigning Europa League champions haven’t been finding life easy this season. 

In their last 5 games in all competitions, they have lost 2, drawn 1, and won their last 2 games. During the run of these games, they scored 8 goals and conceded 4 goals.

For the team news, Villarreal has some players that would likely miss this game due to injury, and they are Coquelin, Moreno, Pena, and Dia, who went on international duty but might be back for this clash.  

Real Madrid Form and Team News

Real Madrid has been excellent this season, winning 16 of their 23 La Liga matches. However,  their recent results are not convincing enough going into this clash. 

In their last 5 games in La Liga, they have won 3, drawn 1, and lost 1. Their loss and draw results were against lower oppositions they were not expected to drop points against.

Also, in their last 5 games in all competitions, they have similar results as they have won 2, drawn 2, and lost 1 (their Copa Del Rey loss to Athletic Bilbao). 

For the team news, Real Madrid will be without Benzema, Casemiro, Lucas, and possibly Eden Hazard, who has fitness issues.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Villarreal has been in good form and is targeting Champions League qualification. Even though they’ve had disappointing 1-0 losses to Elche and 2-1 to Gijon, they have won 2 straight games. 

Real Madrid always finds it hard to win Villarreal as their game end results are always tight. However, Real Madrid knows that any loss in this game can mean Sevilla knocking on their doorsteps for the top position.

Tip 1: Both Teams to Score

If you check the last 5 games between Real Madrid and Villarreal in all competitions, you’ll see that, except for their last match that ended 0-0,   both teams have been finding the net in four of their matches. 

Real Madrid has been scoring in four of their last five games in all competitions.  Also, Villarreal also has been scoring in four of their last five games in all competitions, and we think that both will find the net in this clash. 

For both teams to score, the odds at Casumo sportsbook is 1.61.

Tip 2: Real Madrid Win or Draw 

Even though Real Madrid has had mixed results in their last five games in La Liga, they have always turned up when it matters.  Real Madrid has managed to win Sevilla, Athletic Bilbao, Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona this season. 

Also, checking the team’s H2H, Real Madrid has not lost to Villarreal in their last 5 clashes in all competitions, and we don’t think they will lose this game. 

For Real Madrid to win or draw this game, the odds are 1.48 odds at the Casumo sportsbook

Conclusion

Real Madrid is likely not to lose this game, going by their past performances in matches of high caliber as this one. Also, losing this match and Sevilla winning would mean that they are just 3 points off Sevilla and would be looking over their shoulders. 

Villarreal is in great form and can cause an upset, but we don’t believe they can do that in this match. However, we think both teams can find the net, and the might would be a tight one.
