Our football match prediction:
After dropping two points in a 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo, Real Madrid will be aiming to record their first league win of the year when they welcome Villarreal at their Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Los Blancos are determined to stay in the race for the title and this has to go down as a must-win game for the reigning champions. Zinedine Zidane’s men are likely to go all guns blazing at the Yellow Submarine and Gareth Bale, who scored a brace against Celta, should pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Villarreal failed to impress in a 1-1 draw with Deportivo La Coruna at the weekend and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Real Madrid’s party at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Los Blancos are a real force to be reckoned with at home and it has to be noted that they recorded five wins in previous six home games in the Spanish elite division.
