class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The La Liga season and is going down to the wire and Goal is backing a goal-filled game when Unai Emery's side visit the title-chasing capital club
Real Madrid welcome Villarreal to the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano on Saturday afternoon with the La Liga title on the line for Zinedine Zidane’s men.
In order to retain their crown, Los Blancos need to win and hope that cross-city rivals Atletico Madrid fail to beat relegation-threatened Valladolid.
Unai Emery’s men also have plenty at stake on the final day of the season, with the Yellow Submarine needing a win to try and book a spot in the Europa League next season.
Real Madrid vs Villarreal Latest Odds
These two sides played out a 1-1 draw when they met at the Estadio de la Ceramica earlier this season and another stalemate can be backed at 15/4 (4.75) with bet365.

Real Madrid vs Villarreal Team News
The hosts are likely to remain without their entire first choice back four as Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos and Rafael Varane are all out, while Ferland Mendy is unlikely to feature. Toni Kroos is out with coronavirus and Lucas Vazquez remains injured.
The visitors have doubts over Juan Foyth and Samu Chukweze, while Vicente Iborra has been out for the majority of the season with a ligament injury.
Real Madrid vs Villarreal Preview
The game was originally scheduled to take place on Sunday but was brought forward 24 hours to give Villarreal an extra day recovery time ahead of the Europa League final on Wednesday, meaning Emery should be able to pick his strongest side.
With at least one goal in 19 of their last 21 league games, including each of their last 13, the visitors have been one of the most prolific sides in the division this season and should be able to at least score this weekend.
Indeed, Real’s back four all being unavailable makes a clean sheet unlikely, but going forward they have also been strong with 12 goals in their last six La Liga outings.
Real Madrid vs Villarreal Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score is priced at 7/10 (1.70) while combining this selection with over 2.5 goals sees the odds rise to a healthy looking 20/21 (1.98).
