Real Madrid is raining goals at the moment! Fresh off at a 8-0 thrashing of Malmo, Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. take on Villarreal, who defensively have been leaking goals lately. It promises to be an eventful game, so don’t miss it!
The Yellow Submarine, the nickname for Villarreal because of their bright yellow jerseys, has conceded 9 goals in their last 4 matches, as highlighted by a recent 3-3 tie with Viktoria Plzen in a previous game. Now they face Real Madrid! CLICK HERE TO WATCH VILLARREAL VS. REAL MADRID.
So, free-scoring Real, who has scored 17 goals in their past 4 matches, will be licking their lips at the prospect of scoring today. In fact, Ronaldo, under-fire Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale will all hope to add to their goal tally for the season.
But Villarreal shouldn’t be too disheartened. They pose their own attacking threat through star striker Leo Baptistao. The young Brazilian has found the net twice in 5 league games, so Real’s defense will have to be on top of things for sure.
Real Madrid, who sits in third place in La Liga, will be crossing their fingers that a win could push them closer to the leaders at the top of the standings. Villarreal are in a respectable 5th spot and only 6 points off Real. So, a win would be a huge boost for their Champions League qualification ambitions this season.
The last time these two teams met was back in Jan. 2015, where honors were even in a 1-1 draw. Villarreal will be looking for revenge from last season’s 0-2 home defeat to Real this time around.
