      Villarreal vs Real Madrid Predictions

      Los Blancos have responded well on the pitch at least to their humiliating 4-0 defeat in El Clasico last month. While the Copa del Rey debacle has added pressure on president Florentino Perez, the players have gone about their business as usual.

      They’ve scored 21 goals in their last 5 matches including a record equaling 8-0 win against Malmo in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night. With Karim Benzema back to full fitness, they have a focal point to their attack again and are looking much more dangerous as a result.

      Villarreal are flying high in 5th place but in truth they have been quite unconvincing over the past couple of months. They were lucky to beat Rayo Vallecano at home in their last league game and had only taken 5 points from their 7 matches prior to that.

      Defeats against Levante, Celta Vigo, Barcelona and Getafe in recent weeks have highlighted problem areas in this side and a Real Madrid team that has something of a point to prove still after their defeat to Barca, will be hungry to exploit those issues.

      They are still a devastating attacking side at their best and they look good value here at 2.100 when starting with a -1.0 Asian handicap.

      Villarreal haven’t failed to find the net in 10 outings at El Madrigal this season though and have a clinical finisher in Cedric Bakambu, who got them out of jail last weekend. With Real not entirely convincing defensively, a home goal seems likely but the visitors have enough class to cause Villarreal plenty of problems and could still win by a couple of goals.

      Therefore consider backing Real Madrid to win 3-1 at 11/1.
