Real Madrid’s poor form continued last time out following a 1-0 loss to bottom of the table Vallecano and with nothing more to play for one expects the players are thinking of the summer break. That said this weekend they will be back in front of the Los Blancos faithful when they welcome Villarreal and nothing short of a win will be demanded. Form Labs break down the action with their betting preview and tips for the game and if value is what you are after then head over to our FanBoosts section and see what is on offer.
Real Madrid’s Recent Form
Zinedine Zidane continues to use the final games of the season to assess his squad, which has lead to some meandering performances.
That’s been the case in their last two as they’ve drawn at Getafe and lost at Vallecano, failing to score in each.
While they’ve won all four matches at the Bernabeu since the Frenchman returned, they’ve hardly been convincing and they’ll be without out the services of two of their most important players – captain Sergio Ramos and top scorer Karim Benzema, who has over double the amount of goals of next top scorer Gareth Bale.
Ramos is actually the only other Real player to reach double figures this season, and so Los Blancos can hardly be trusted at the prices.
Villarreal Recent Form
That’s especially the case against a Villarreal side that have turned their fortunes around since Javier Calleja arrived at the helm.
One of La Liga’s biggest clubs were in serious danger of going down after just three victories in their first 21 matches, leaving them stranded in 19th.
However, they’ve gone W6-D4-L4 since Calleja took charge and they’re now five points above the drop zone with just three games to go.
However, they too are without their top scorer as Karl Otoko Ekambi is suspended and the Cameroonian has been inspired since the change of management, netting five in his last eight, while they’ve won just two of 12 matches without him term.
Real Madrid v Villarreal Betting Tips
Five of Villarreal’s seven away game under Calleja have had fewer than three strikes, as four were level at half-time.
Los Blancos have been sluggish starters during Zizu’s second reign, netting just one first half goal in eight matches. Three of the four to take place at the Bernabeu were level at the break, which looks the best bet again in what should be a cage affair.
