Villarreal vs Real Madrid Odds and Spreads

 

Home Sweet Home: Can Villarreal Edge Win vs Real Madrid?

Midweek, Villarreal got a huge victory in its visit to Girona, one of the teams in La Liga’s top four. Despite losing possession with 33% and only taking three shots on goal, Villarreal won 1-0. The bad news is that Kiko Femenia got a red card right before the end of the match.

That was Villarreal’s seventh home victory of the season, losing only one of their last nine home games and they only failed to score in one of those matches. In other words, defeating them at La Ceramica isn’t easy. Barcelona did it, but not without suffering (4-3).

Time to talk about the champs, who crushed Deportivo Alaves 5-0 in their last match. Vinicius Junior led the way with a brace, while youngster Arda Guler scored his fourth goal of the season despite barely playing. Like it or not, it’s time to start talking about Junior winning the Ballon d’Or.


Thanks to that result, Real Madrid is one victory or draw away from finishing the season unbeaten at home. They’ll play host to Real Betis in the last match of La Liga.

Head coach Carlo Ancelotti and the players are trying to keep up the pace towards the UCL final and they’re doing a great job. Therefore, you can expect Real Madrid to play with several usual starters.

Double Trouble: Sorloth & Bellingham to Terrorize Defenses

Two of the league’s top scorers will be on the pitch.

First, we must talk about Alexander Sorloth, Villarreal’s top scorer with 19 goals. Sorloth scored in six of the team’s last 10 games and scored at least two goals in three of those matches. He already scored against powerhouses like Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

Now, it’s time to talk about Jude Bellingham. The midfielder has scored 19 goals despite battling injuries all season. He scored three goals in Real Madrid’s last five domestic games, including the winner in El Clasico against Barcelona.

Bellingham is followed by Vinicius Junior with 15 goals and Joselu Matos with nine. The crazy part is that Junior and Matos are strikers and usually have way more chances to score.

Whatever you do, make sure to include at least one of the two, Sorloth or Bellingham, in your soccer picks.
