RMC vs VIL: Match Prediction, Team News And Kickoff Time

With a 6-1 thumping of Mallorca, Real Madrid secured their La Liga advantage and will be looking to expand it when they play Villarreal in the following round. The two unbeaten teams are at opposite ends of the La Liga table, with Real on top with 16 points and Villarreal in 11th place with seven.

Real Madrid has only dropped two points so far this season, with five wins in six league games but just two clean sheets in seven. Karim Benzema, a French forward, has been the team's standout player thus far, scoring eight goals in six league games.

Real Madrid is the league's leading scorer, with 21 goals in six games, yet they have the worst defence among the top 14 teams. In six games, they've let up eight goals. Real has gone undefeated in their last seven meetings with Villarreal, winning three of them. All the victories have occurred at home.

Villarreal is one of the five undefeated teams so far, but four draws have put them in last place, despite having a game in hand. They had just won their first game of the season, a 4-1 victory over Elche, coming into this encounter. When they head to the capital, they will be looking for their first win over Real Madrid in eight outings. The last time these two teams met was in the final game of last season, which Real won 2-1 in Madrid.

They have three clean sheets in their five league games and have scored two goals in two of them. Villarreal has struggled in La Liga recently, winning just four of their last 12 games, and they are winless in their last four away games in the league.

SUMMARY:

Real Madrid are in terrific form, with Karim Benzema leading a dangerous attack. They haven't lost to Villarreal in their last seven games, winning all of them at home. Villarreal are unbeaten to this point, but their scoring has been inconsistent, and they will be underdogs in this match. I am backing Real Madrid to win this game. The match will be played tomorrow at 8:00 PM Nigerian time.
