Villarreal v Real Madrid will meat on Sunday (19:45 UK time) at El Estadio de la Cerámica for the 24th week of the regular season. After the defeat against Valencia in the match postponed of La Liga, Los Blancos must play now in another tough stadium against a very difficult team.
Villarreal v Real Madrid Preview
Villarreal are a very good team and in these moments they are in the sixth position of the table with 39 points. The team managed by Fran Esribá won the last game against Real Sociedad at Anoeta (0-1), and they also could achieve the victory in the Europe League against Roma, but they were kicked out of the competition because they lost in the first leg (0-4) at Estadio de la Cerámica. For this match Villarreal have the only doubt of Sansone because of hamstrings problems.
Real Madrid lost in the last match of the regular season and now they must visit a very difficult stadium. The team managed by Zinedine Zidane could not achieve the victory last Wednesday at Mestalla and they could not increase the gap with their followers. For this game the French manager cannot count with Varane because of an injury in his biceps, that prevented him from finishing the match at Mestalla.
