Real Madrid – Statistics & current form
Real Madrid can still call themselves 33 times Spanish champions. In the past two years, Real Madrid not only missed winning the championship, but also had to settle for third place each. In the current season, Real Madrid has been in first or second place continuously since the eleventh game day.
Nine games – nine wins – Real on fire
The top club has laid the foundation stone for the probable championship in recent weeks. There were rarely any playful gala performances, but football is and remains a result sport. No team has internalized this as Real Madrid at the moment.
Real Madrid have won all nine games since the restart, five times with just one goal difference and often to the annoyance of many fans in Spain with a (controversial) penalty. A good horse only jumps as high as it has to be. This guiding principle currently fits like a fist on the eye, if the performance of the royal is to be described.
14-4-0 home record
Real Madrid presents itself completely without flaws in the home stadium. There have been a total of 14 victories in the 18 previous home games and the guest was only able to take one counter four times. Since the public was closed, Real Madrid has not played at the Estadio Bernabeu, but on the training grounds and the associated Alfredo di Stefano stadium.
However, this had no impact on the performance and last time there was a point loss in the 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo in mid-February. On Thursday, odds of around 1.40 will be offered for the home win between Real Madrid and Villarreal.
Real Madrid have to do without injured left-back Marcelo and strikers Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz due to injury. Really relevant, however, is only the Marcelo loss, which is currently well compensated by Ferland Mendy (scorer in the 2-1 win over Granada).
Probable lineups of Real Madrid:
Courtois – Mendy, Ramos, Varane, Carvajal – Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos – Isco, Modric – Benzema
Last Real Madrid games:
07/13 2020 Granada 1 – 2 Real Madrid
07/10 2020 Real Madrid 2 – 0 Deportivo Alaves
07/05 2020 Athletic Bilbao 0 – 1 Real Madrid
07/02 2020 Real Madrid 1 – 0 Getafe
06/28 2020 Espanyol 0 – 1 Real Madrid
Villarreal – Statistics & current form
After a year of “abstinence from Europe”, the yellow submarine is about to return to its favorite Europa League competition. Villarreal left the first match ball in front of a home crowd last Sunday. The Calleja team lost 1-2 to Real Sociedad and lost for the second time in a row at Estadio de la Ceramica.
Four away wins since the restart
Playing in a foreign place has not been a disadvantage, especially since restarting at Villarreal. All four previous guest appearances have ended in victory. Should this proud series be continued, lucrative odds of up to 7.00 for the yellow submarine will lure between Real Madrid and Villarreal on Thursday. Villarreal has now celebrated more victories abroad (nine) than at home (eight). Thanks to the strong shape of the past few weeks.
At Villarreal goals are guaranteed
The detailed statistics of the Spanish LaLiga show that many hits are usually guaranteed for the Calleja elf. Before the penultimate matchday, an average of 2.92 goals were scored, only with games involving Barcelona there were more goals to be seen.
The leader is the yellow submarine in the number of games that ended with at least three goals (24 of the 36 games). No other team outperforms 67 percent of “over 2.5” games and is the best proof that the defensive is often prone to errors (especially via the sides), but the offensive always creates danger.
Probable line-up of Villarreal:
Asenjo – Moreno, Torres, Albiol, Pena – Zambo Anguissa, Trigueros – Ontiveros, Cazorla, Gomez – Moreno
Last games from Villarreal:
07/13 2020 Villarreal FC 1 – 2 San Sebastian
07/08 2020 Getafe 1 – 3 Villarreal FC
07/05 2020 Villarreal FC 1 – 4 Barcelona
07/01 2020 Real Betis 0-2 Villarreal FC
06/28 2020 Villarreal FC 2 – 0 Valencia
Real Madrid vs Villarreal Direct comparison
The home game against the yellow submarine will certainly not be a sure-fire success for the royal team. Although the underdog only had the upper hand in four of the 39 games against the designated champions, a look at the most recent games clearly shows that Villarreal has the quality to annoy Real Madrid.
Three of the last four league games ended in a 2-2 draw, in the fourth duel Real Madrid was only able to prevail 3-2. Goals seem to be guaranteed, on Thursday between Real Madrid and Villarreal for the prediction of over 2.5 odds around 1.55 will be offered.
