Real Madrid defeated Espanyol on the weekend to register their 16th consecutive victory in Spanish La Liga. Real have a perfect record with 12 points from 4 league matches this season, they are currently top of the La Liga standings. They have a 3 point lead over Barcelona and a 6 points gap against city rivals Atletico Madrid. Head coach Zinedine Zidane has some headaches as both of his hitmen Ronaldo and Bale are yet to regain their full fitness and remains a doubt for the match against Villarreal.
On the other hand, the Yellow Submarines hold on to their undefeated record this season after grabbing a narrow 2–1 victory against Real Sociedad on Sunday. It wasn’t a very persuasive display from Fran Escriba’s side but he will be fairly satisfied with the points. Villarreal will start the match sitting at 6th on the league table with 2 wins and 2 draws from their 4 fixtures so far. As regard team news, Soldado and Bakambu are still out injured, while Alexandre Pato may be dropped with Borre likely to partner Nicola Sansone up front.
