Real Madrid vs Villarreal Prediction & Betting tips
It’s done – thanks to the outstanding performance since the restart, Real Madrid has taken pole position and the butter is no longer to be taken off. The lead on the Blaugrana is four points and thus Real could finally fix the title on Thursday with a victory. This leads to a duel between Real Madrid and Villarreal.
Not surprisingly, the betting base odds comparison in this duel shows a clear favorite role in favor of the royal from Madrid. However, the yellow submarine has the quality to annoy the royal ones. Above all, Villarreal itself will throw everything into the balance.
Villarreal is in fifth place in the current LaLiga table and is already six points ahead of eighth. Villarreal therefore already has more than one hand on the Europa League ticket, with a point win at Real, any arithmetic would be obsolete.

Real Madrid :
Real Madrid can still call themselves 33 times Spanish champions. In the past two years, Real Madrid not only missed winning the championship, but also had to settle for third place each. In the current season, Real Madrid has been in first or second place continuously since the eleventh game day.
The top club has laid the foundation stone for the probable championship in recent weeks. There were rarely any playful gala performances, but football is and remains a result sport. No team has internalized this as Real Madrid at the moment.
Real Madrid have won all nine games since the restart, five times with just one goal difference and often to the annoyance of many fans in Spain with a (controversial) penalty. A good horse only jumps as high as it has to be. This guiding principle currently fits like a fist on the eye, if the performance of the royal is to be described.
Real Madrid presents itself completely without flaws in the home stadium. There have been a total of 14 victories in the 18 previous home games and the guest was only able to take one counter four times. Since the public was closed, Real Madrid has not played at the Estadio Bernabeu, but on the training grounds and the associated Alfredo di Stefano stadium.
However, this had no impact on the performance and last time there was a point loss in the 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo in mid-February. On Thursday, odds of around 1.40 will be offered for the home win between Real Madrid and Villarreal.
Real Madrid have to do without injured left-back Marcelo and strikers Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz due to injury. Really relevant, however, is only the Marcelo loss, which is currently well compensated by Ferland Mendy (scorer in the 2-1 win over Granada).
After a year of “abstinence from Europe”, the yellow submarine is about to return to its favorite Europa League competition. Villarreal left the first match ball in front of a home crowd last Sunday. The Calleja team lost 1-2 to Real Sociedad and lost for the second time in a row at Estadio de la Ceramica.
Playing in a foreign place has not been a disadvantage, especially since restarting at Villarreal. All four previous guest appearances have ended in victory. Villarreal has now celebrated more victories abroad (nine) than at home (eight). Thanks to the strong shape of the past few weeks.
The leader is the yellow submarine in the number of games that ended with at least three goals (24 of the 36 games). No other team outperforms 67 percent of “over 2.5” games and is the best proof that the defensive is often prone to errors (especially via the sides), but the offensive always creates danger.
