Real Madrid vs Villarreal team news
Carlo Ancelotti is still unable to call upon the services of Dani Carvajal, Marcelo, Gareth Bale and Ferland Mendy while Toni Kroos is returning from injury and remains a doubt.
Villarreal are without their top scorer from last season Gerard Moreno, as well as winger Samu Chukweze, while Yeremi Pino is a doubt.
Real Madrid vs Villarreal preview
Madrid were at their entertaining best on Wednesday evening in their demolition of Mallorca, but even with the side playing extremely well they still conceded.
Not only did Mallorca score, they managed 12 shots, a high number for a newly-promoted team at the Bernabeu and Ancelotti knows there is still work to do in order for his side to improve at the back.
Madrid have conceded in five of their six league matches so far this term and backing them to do so once more against the Europa League champions makes sense.
Villarreal managed to rack up four goals against Elche without Gerard Moreno in midweek and have scored in each of their last 10 meetings with Real Madrid.
Real Madrid vs Villarreal tips & predictions
Both teams to score is priced at 7/10 (1.70) and has paid out in nine of the last 10 meetings, including each of the last seven.
