Real Madrid, the current La Liga champions, will attempt to win their third straight game against Villarreal on Saturday. Ahead of the upcoming slate of games, Los Blancos are now in second place, tied for first place with Barcelona on points (38) while Villarreal are in seventh place, one point behind Real Betis in sixth.
Despite having some difficulties this year, Villarreal has won its past two league games, including a 2-1 victory over Valencia last weekend that gave them 24 points after 15 games.
Quique Setien’s team is in a strong position at this point in the season; a win over the champions on Saturday would be another significant step in the right way. They are only one point behind sixth-placed Real Betis and only three behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid.
This season, Yellow Submarine are also participating in the Europa Conference League. They advanced to the competition’s knockout round by winning Group C with 13 points after six games.
Now let’s take a look at the other side of the field. Real Madrid has had incredible success on the road versus Villarreal; they have not lost there since December 2015, and they will be attempting to extend that streak on Saturday.
On December 30, Carlo Ancelotti’s team faced Real Valladolid again in La Liga. Thanks to a late double from Karim Benzema, the incumbent champions won 2-0, bringing their total to 38 points from 15 games, which is currently equal to that of league leaders Barcelona.
Real Madrid will have the opportunity to reclaim the top spot with a victory today because Barcelona will be playing Atletico Madrid on Sunday. Los Blancos have the greatest away record in La Liga this season, collecting 21 points from their eight away games.
Ancelotti’s team is getting ready for a busy stretch of games, including matchups against Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad in the league, and they’ll face Valencia in the Spanish Super Cup semi-finals on January 10. If they win, they’ll face off against either Barcelona or Real Betis.
