Villarreal vs Real Madrid Betting Tips: BTTS & OVER 2.5

Enduring a rather messy first half of the domestic campaign, where they spent some time in the lower half of the league table, Villarreal impressively surged from the turnaround of the calendar year and, like a "phoenix from the ashes," returned to the race for European spots, all thanks to the strong form they displayed during the final weeks of the 2023-24 season.

Five points adrift of seventh-placed Real Betis, who hold the ticket to the UEFA Europa Conference League qualifiers, the Yellow Submarine understand that securing maximum points in the remaining two rounds of LaLiga is crucial if they want to keep their slim hopes of sneaking into the top seven alive, with a promising end to the season in sight.

Even though their final tests are far from a walk in the park, starting with a clash against champions Real Madrid, Marcelino’s squad will feel encouraged by their recent form which has been nothing short of outstanding, boasting triumphs in five of their last six matches across all competitions, including a 1-0 thrashing of Girona in the heart of Catalonia last time out.

Finding the back of the net hasn't been a problem for the Yellow Submarine this campaign, as they have struck 60 times in 37 matches, with an impressive 38 of those goals coming at El Madrigal, clearly indicating that Villarreal are far more dangerous in front of goal on their home turf, but conceding 60 goals overall means their defense has been giving them headaches.

Since routinely seeing off relegation-threatened Cadiz 3-0 earlier this month to seal a record 36th league title, Los Blancos have not slowed down, instead ramping up their intensity by first crushing already-relegated Granada 4-0 before putting on a five-star performance to sink Deportivo Alaves midweek at a packed Santiago Bernabeu.

By hammering Alaves at home, the capital giants stretched their incredible unbeaten run to an imposing 30 matches in Spain's top tier (W24, D6), and Sunday's contest gives them the opportunity to make history by breaking the record for the longest unbeaten streak in LaLiga, but there is a concern that this extraordinary run could be halted, considering they left El Madrigal empy-handed in a 1-2 loss last year.

Recently, the meetings between these sides have been extremely exciting affairs, with the last three H2H's producing an astonishing 15 goals, including Real's 4-1 demolition of the Yellows in the Spanish capital in the reverse December fixture. Apart from that, it's important to note that Villarreal are undeniably the most captivating team to watch in LaLiga, as evidenced by the fact that 28 out of their 36 top-flight matches have seen both sides finding the net. In that case, we hope that both sides will give us some exciting, goal-rich football.

Villarreal team news

Villarreal face a rather extensive list of unavailable players for the final day of the 2023-24 LaLiga campaign, as boss Marcelino could be without as many as nine players.

Hardened centre-back Raul Albiol will have to pass assessments to be cleared to feature against his former club, while 33-year-old full-back Kiko Femenia and key winger Alex Baena are unable to feature in Sunday's clash due to suspensions.

Real Madrid team news

Unlike Sunday's hosts, Real Madrid have no major injury and suspension concerns, but will be without the services of David Alaba and Aurelian Tchouameni for the rest of the season due to knee and foot injuries.

Head coach Carlo Ancelotti is very likely to make some rotations in the starting XI compared to the strong line-up he selected in the 5-0 demolition of Alaves last time out.
