Analysis of Real Madrid

The shining star at the Barnabeu is Isco. The Spaniard, despite not being fast, has tremendous technical ability and game vision making him a major piece on the squad.

On the offensive end 3 men are unavoidable. Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema they will do everything they can to get the win on this match, however, the connection between the three has seen better days.

Carlo Ancelotti will probably opt for a game style that privileges ball possession and rapid transitions in order to grab this win.

Coach: Carlo Ancelotti


Confirmed Lineup: Casillas, Pepe, Carvajal, R. Varane, Marcelo, Isco, T. Kroos, Lucas Silva, Cristiano Ronaldo, K. Benzema, G. Bale.
Coach: Rafael Benítez.

Analysis of Villarreal

To put into practice the team’s major weapon, the fast transitions, Campbell and Cheryshev are the major weapons, with the Russian youngster being the greatest danger, and the greatest hope to get goal balls to the main striker Vietto, who has 11 goals already.

The defence of the team is their strong point, they have excellent quality and great players composing it, for example Misacchio.

On this match Toral will probably utilize his usual 4-4-2 formation privileging a low block supporting some fast breaks.

Probable Starters: Asenjo; Mario, Musacchio, Dorado, Rukavina; Campbell, Marcos, Pina, Cheryshev; Vietto, Giovani Dos Santos.
Coach: Marcelino Toral

Coach: Marcelino.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match will be a Real Madrid win, however we believe they will concede at least one goal. Ancelotti’s team will most likely dominate the whole match based on the quality of its player but the quality of the opponent’s offensive line will pose some troubles to the Merengue defence.
