Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio de la Ceramica when Villarreal and Real Madrid square off against each other in the La Liga derby. Los Blancos experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Valencia, but it has to be noted that los Che scored three goals from the penalty spot. Even though Real Madrid are eager to return to winning ways, this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the reigning champions. The Yellow Submarine, on the other hand, are eyeing their fifth consecutive win in all competitions.
Villarreal proved their worth in a 3-1 win at Getafe, and we are positive that they will find the net in Saturday’s clash against Real Madrid, who have injury concerns at the back. Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane have joined Nacho in the recovery room. Both Eden Hazard and Eder Militao are rated doubtful (coronavirus), while Casemiro is back following his negative test on the new virus. Midfielder Valverde is out of contention through injury. Anyhow, given Real Madrid’s attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Ramiro Funes Mori):
Argentina isn’t known to produce great talents in defence but Ramiro Jose Funes Mori is an exception. The 25-year-old started his football career in the United States with FC Dallas. He won an MLS talent competition to get into their youth team but it was less than a year before he moved back to Argentina.
Mori joined River Plate as a youth player in 2008 and progressed to their senior team within three years. The young defender is nothing short of a club legend at River Plate having won six titles with the team. More than the titles and his performances, it was his performances in important games that is still vividly remembered.
His iconic goal against Boca Juniors is still part of the folklore. Mori joined English Premier League club Everton in 2015 and soon established himself as a regular there. Mori represented Argentina seven times and yet to score in national colors.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid is a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 13 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world.
Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards.
The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
