How Real Madrid could line up against Villarreal in La Liga

Spanish giant Real Madrid are currently in sensational form but face a tough test when they welcome Villarreal to the Spanish capital.

However, Real Madrid will be hoping to maintain their outstanding recent form on Saturday when they welcome Villarreal to Santiago Bernabeu in La Liga.

Furthermore, the Los Blancos have only dropped points in one match so far in the new campaign, a 3-3 draw with Levante in the middle of August.

The Los Blancos have played seven matches in all competitions over La Liga and the Champions League and won six of those, scoring a fantastic 22 goals in that time. Most recently, they demolished Mallorca 6-1 at home.

The leader of the charge has been Karim Benzema, who is probably the most in-form player in Europe currently, with 15 goal contributions in seven games.

Marco Asensio was the man of the match against Mallorca, though, scoring a hat-trick from midfield.

Goalkeeper and Defender:

For the Villarreal clash, Thibaut Courtois will start in goal behind a back four of Nacho, Eder Militao, David Alaba and youngster Miguel Gutierrez.

Dani Carvajal, Ferland Mendy and Marcelo are all out injured.

The Midfield:

Casemiro and Luka Modric were rested for the Mallorca game so should return, probably at the expense of Federico Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga, with Toni Kroos a doubt.

In the forward:

Main man Benzema should be flanked by Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior, though Eden Hazard is in need of game time also.

With Real Madrid outstanding form, am going for a 3 - 1 win over Villarreal.
