Matchday 3 of La Liga continues with Villareal vs Real Madrid. Los Blancos dropped two massive points last weekend against Valladolid. On the other hand, Villareal are winless in their first two matches. They are looking to give their fans the opportunity to celebrate their first win of the season as they take on one of La Liga’s powerhouses. This of course will not be an easy task for the home side.

Villareal vs Real Madrid Prediction & Match Preview

Sunday, September 1 – 15:00 EST – Estadio de la Ceramica

Villareal did not have the start to the season they were hoping for. The Yellow Submarine are winless in their first two matches. Their opener against Granada CF ended in a 4-4 draw, and they showed just how capable they were of scoring goals with ease. They dropped 3 points to Levante in last week’s fixture which ended 2-1. With this being said, Villareal have had all sorts of issues at the back. They will need to be much better defensively in this match if they are going to have a chance at competing. The Yellow Submarine will look to punish this Real Madrid side if they make any mistakes. Taking points away from this lethal side is of course easier said than done.

Real Madrid dropped two points in what ended as a disappointing 1-1 draw against Valladolid last weekend. The away side will be looking to get back to their winning ways. They make their way to Estadio de la Ceramica this Sunday where they’ll be looking for their second win of the season. Key midfielder Luka Modric will be returning from suspension which will be a definite difference maker in this match. Eden Hazard and James Rodriguez are currently rated as doubtful for the match. Nonetheless, we are expecting a hungry Real Madrid side which will absolutely want to bounce back after last week’s result. Anything less than 3 points can be regarded as a disappointing result.
