La Liga / Villarreal vs Real Madrid – The last match of the 3rd round is at the same time the most interesting although both Villarreal and Real Madrid had underperformed last season. They also didn’t start in the best way this one and Villarreal has just one point, while Real Madrid won one match and surprisingly drew another. Last season Real Madrid failed to win this away match that ended as 2-2 draw.
Game Villarreal vs Real Madrid begins 01.09.2019 at 21:00 CET
Again a weak start of season for Villarreal and two matches in which they had an advantage but didn’t win. Match with Granada in the first round was excellent, however, it didn’t have a happy ending for Villarreal despite lead of 4-2 since they played very poorly in the finish of match. They took a lead in away match with Levante practically from the first attack and kept it for a long time, but around the middle of the second half they received two goals in just five minutes, both from penalties. That is already three penalties awarded against Villarreal in first two rounds. Mario, A. Moreno and Toko Ekambi played in the second round, but A. Moreno is injured now.
Probable lineups Villarreal: A. Fernandes – Mario, R. Albiol, P. Torres, Quintilla – Anguissa, Cazorla – Samu, Iborra, Moi Gomez – G. Moreno
Real Madrid didn’t show anything particular in first two rounds and it can be said that problems from the previous season persist to plague them. They win Celta away in the first round although it was not a particularly good match after Real scored the leading goal. They played well in the second half when Modric was sent off and they scored two goals with a player less. In the second round they struggled to break Valladolid resistance and when Benzema finally scored, Kroos made a mistake two minutes before the end and the guests equalised for the final 1-1. J. Rodriguez and Isco were surprisingly refreshments in the team but they both got injured. Carvajal is back and Modric will play again now.
Probable lineups Real Madrid: Courtois – Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo – Casemiro, Modric, T. Kroos – Bale, Benzema, Vinicius
Betting Pick: Villarreal vs Real Madrid
Recent matches between the two teams are regularly very efficient and given what they showed in first two rounds it is very realistic to again see a goal fest. Villarreal and Real Madrid have good attacks and we forecast plenty of goals.
Pick: Over 3 goals
Odds: 1.64 at bethard (down to 1.57 can be played)
