Madrid suffered a 4-1 defeat against Valencia two weeks ago, so they will hope you get back to winning ways today and they could move up to second in the table, leapfrogging their opponents. However, they will be without a few key players today, with Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema both unavailable due to injury.
Villarreal have only lost one game so far this season and they are second in LaLiga, two points behind Real Sociedad at the top and two above today’s opponents Real Madrid. They are on a four-game winning streak in all competitions, after beating Getafe 3-1 last time out before the international break.
