Real Madrid vs Villarreal prediction comes ahead of the La Liga fixture between runaway leaders Real Madrid and Villarreal at the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium on Thursday. Let’s take a look at the match preview as we try to provide the best betting tips and correct score prediction for this tie.

Real Madrid vs Villareal Betting Tips

Finally, the day has come for the white half of Madrid to potentially celebrate. Real Madrid need just one more win to secure the La Liga title. The Galacticos have been a class apart from any team in the Spanish countryside as they cruised to their 9th victory in a row against Granada. They have also done it in style as they have been the first to score in each of those 9 games and have never looked anything apart from favourites in any game whatsoever.

Madrid’s visitors for Thursday Villareal though, have another target in sight. They are just 3 points ahead of Getafe in the Europa League spot and a loss could take result in them dropping to the qualification position. The stakes are higher for them than Madrid.

Interestingly, 3 of the last 6 meetings between the two sides have ended in a draw. In fact, even the reverse fixture in September ended in a 2-2 draw when Madrid had to finish the game with a man down. This suggests that Real Madrid won’t have its title easy on Thursday night.

Villarreal have won their last 4 away games but this doesn’t supposedly pose a threat to this Madrid side who are unbeaten at home this season. There hasn’t been a single clean sheet between the two sides in the last 4 games – suggesting we could see both the teams scoring on Thursday.

Talking about tactics, set-pieces could be the game-changer in this fixture. Madrid have been Spain’s best side for probably the past decade now when it comes to aerial duels, especially due to their captain Sergio Ramos. Villarreal are weak both in aerial duels and defending set-pieces so every corner or indirect free-kick in the Villarreal box could be a huge goal-scoring opportunity for Real.

Real Madrid vs Villareal Correct Score Predictions

There is no doubt Madrid would not want to take it to the last game and win the title on Thursday. But, Villarreal have their Europa League spot to lose if they are defeated and thus would go all-in for this one. Nevertheless, this should be a closely contested fixture but Madrid should win the title with a 2-1 win.
