Villarreal v Real Madrid La Liga, 19th May 5.30pm
Second place in the league is still up for grabs for Real Madrid, who thumped Celta Vigo 6-0 last weekend, but in order to get it they would have to better anything that Atletico Madrid manage in their final match. This is a tough game though for Madrid who make the trip to Villarreal who are in good form at the moment having won four of their last five games and are looking to hold on to fifth place.
Villarreal v Real Madrid Betting Odds*
Villarreal 29/20, Real Madrid 31/20, Draw 11/4* (Betting Odds taken at 9:37 p.m. on May 14th, 2018)
Villarreal v Real Madrid Betting Tips
Villarreal have won their last three home games in La Liga and so could carry a threat here and their last one at El Madrigal was a success over fourth-placed Valencia. Overall this season they have gone W11 D2 L5 for the season on home soil and they have beaten Atletico Madrid there was well this season. Aside from losing their two games against Barcelona, they have handled themselves really well against the current top four having gone W4 D1 L2 in their seven matches against them so far. So they are worth backing to get something out of this game and The Yellow Submarine have averaged 1.8 goals per game at home this season and have taken a clean sheet in a third of their fixtures. Of the goals that they have conceded this season on home soil 65% of them have been after the half time break so the half time draw at bet365 for 7/4 odds looks* (Betting Odds taken at 9:37 p.m. on May 14th, 2018) a decent punt. Home and away combined they have scored in each of their last seven matches in the Spanish top flight and have great threats up top through Carlos Bacco and Cedric Bakambu.
All Real Madrid can do is win and hope that Atletico Madrid slips up in their final game in the race for second place. Real Madrid are W10 D5 L3 away from the Bernabeu this season and their form is pretty patchy at the moment. They are W3 D3 L1 in their last seven league games and are muddling along without Cristiano Ronaldo. They did alright last weekend as they hammered Celta Vigo 6-0 at the Bernabeu. They are without a win in their last two away games though (D1 L1) and they conceded at least two goals in each of those losses as well. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 1/4 odds so not really worth much of a look in, so in the bet365 correct score market a Villarreal 2-1 option is a short 10/1 price* (Betting Odds taken at 9:37 p.m. on May 14th, 2018) which could well appeal. Los Merengues only have the one clean sheet in their last seven games but they have scored in each of their last five road fixtures.
Villarreal v Real Madrid Head to Head
Villarreal took a 1-0 win at the Bernabeu back in January and that leaves things even at two wins each and a draw between them in their last five meetings. On home soil Villereal are W1 D2 L2 in their last five games against Real madrid. Both teams have scored in just two of the last five meetings. There was a tight scrap between them last season at El Madrigal with Real taking a 3-2 victory.
Who will win – Villarreal v Real Madrid Predictions
Real Madrid need to come out and play for second but that may leave them vulnerable at the back. Villarreal did a great job against them at the Bernabeu and with their current home form can get the better of them again. Home win.
