Real Madrid 1/4 to beat Villarreal in Saturday’s La Liga clash
Competition: La Liga
Market: Real Madrid to beat Villarreal
Odds: 1/4 @ Bet365
La Liga continues this weekend with another round of games that will likely prove vital to the fortunes of the teams by the end of the season. Every side will want to pick up all three points for their season-objectives, be it survival or a push for the title, and with this in mind, Real Madrid host Villarreal on Saturday.
Real Madrid have been struggling this season and they are in need of a run of wins to get themselves back into the mix for the top spots in the league. After 17 games they have won nine, drawn five and lost three, while they have scored 32 times and conceded 16 goals. In their last five they have been far too inconsistent, winning twice, drawing twice and losing once, which has seen them onto 32 points for the season so far. Real are currently 16 points short of Barcelona with just one game in hand, meaning that their battle to win the league is over, but they can still catch Atletico Madrid in second if they turn their form around.
Villarreal have been enjoying a very good season so far. After 18 games they have won eight, drawn four and lost six, scoring 25 times and conceding 21 goals. In their last five they have lost twice, drawn once, and won twice, which has helped them onto 28 points for the season so far. A win over Madrid on Saturday would see Villarreal come to within a point of their opponents in the table.
