Villarreal and Real Madrid are giving the start of the football in La Liga in 2019. The fixture between both teams was delayed because the participation of Los Blancos in the Club World Cup which they won with 4-1 in the finale against Al Ain.

Villarreal have just three victories since the start of the season and are on their way of relegation. The Yellow Submarine is one of the worst home teams in La Liga with just six points after eight games. Real Madrid are gradually gaining momentum and lagging behind Barcelona by only eight points with a game less. Los Blancos had problems in their away games in the start of the season, but since Santiago Solari’s appointment, they have five victories and one defeat as visitors in all competitions (without Club World Cup).

Although Real Madrid are not playing attractive football, they are winning their games. We expect a new minimal victory for the away team which will help them to shorten the distance to the La Liga’s leaders. I will back Real Madrid to Win, with Real Madrid 1-0 Correct Score.
