Real Madrid are currently third-place in La Liga, having already sealed a Champions League spot for next season, despite a torrid campaign for the former European champions.
The team from the capital have been highly inconsistent of late, winning just one of their last four matches in the Spanish top-flight. Last time out Zinedine Zidane’s team suffered a 1-0 defeat at Real Valladolid.
Their recent league games have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four matches in the Spanish top-flight.
Real Madrid have won their last four league games at the Bernabeu. Los Blancos have also scored at least two goals in six of their last eight La Liga games on home soil. The home sides attacking prowess on home soil has led to five of their last seven matches in the league producing over 2.5 goals.
Villarreal have endured a poor La Liga campaign this season. The Yellow Submarine are currently 14th place in the Spanish top-flight, just five points clear of the relegation zone with three league games remaining.
A recent four-game unbeaten run in La Liga, including three victories, has moved Javi Calleja’s team away from the drop zone. However, last time out, the visitors could only draw 1-1 with rock-bottom Huesca.
Villarreal have won their last two away games in La Liga against Girona and Real Sociedad. However, the strugglers have claimed just three wins from their last 14 matches on their travels in the Spanish top-flight. Their recent away games in La Liga have been low-scoring too, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last seven matches.
GoBonus predicts that Real Madrid will record a victory in a low-scoring clash to keep the visitors sweating on their La Liga status for a bit longer.
GoBonus Prediction: 1 / Correct score: 2 – 0 / Under 2.5 goals
