RM vs VIL Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

The 1-1 draw last weekend at Santiago Bernabeu against a newly-promoted Real Valladolid was enough to raise questions about the Real Madrid's title credentials.

At a time when Barcelona are playing without Lionel Messi and clearly struggling, Madrid must leverage the situation. But they failed last week, and are already playing the chasing game in the title race.

That said, there is another opportunity for the Los Blancos to make strides as the Catalan giants were once again held back to a 2-2 draw in the league, this time by the just-promoted Osasuna at El Sadar Stadium.

A win for Zinedine Zidane's team here will take the team 3 points clear of their fierce rivals on the points table.

Match Details:

The La Liga match will be played between Villarreal and Real Madrid at Estadio de la Cerámica, in Villarreal, Spain. The ground has a capacity of 23,000.
The game will start at 12:30 AM (IST), on Monday, September 02.

Villarreal Team News:

  • Alberto Moreno made his first competitive start for Villarreal last weekend, which the Yellow Submarine lost by 2-1 to Levante. But the 27-year-old left-back picked up a knock late in the game and is listed as a doubt.
  • Villarreal's horse-for-all-weather Bruno Soriano is a long-term absentee and is expected to come back from the injury only after the international break.
  • While Villarreal's very own academy product Ramiro Guerra is ruled out due to an injury.
  • In addition, right-back Rubén Peña is a huge doubt following his ankle injury in the first game of the season which forced him to miss the last game.

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • The big problems facing head coach Javier Calleja ahead of this huge game are the wing-back positions.
  • With both Moreno and Pena doubtful, Xavier Quintillà may start at left-back while Mario Gaspar may get the nod on the opposite flank.
  • The midfield and the attacking positions should be occupied by the same players as the last match.

Villarreal Probable XI:

Fernández (GK), Peña / Gaspar, Albiol, Torres, Quintilla / Moreno, Anguissa, Cazorla, Chukwueze, Iborra, Gómez, Moreno

Real Madrid FC Team News:

  • Madrid's new Galactico Eden Hazard is nearing a return but considering this is the last game before the two-week international hiatus, expect Zidane to not select Belgian for this game. The 29-year-old definitely needs time to regain his 100% match fitness.
  • James Rodriguez and Isco both picked up injuries during Madrid's last weekend's 1-1 home draw against Real Valladolid. The duo will miss the trip to Castellon as a result.
  • While winger Marco Asensio and Brahim Diaz remain long-term absentees for the Los Blancos.

Possible ins or outs of this game:

  • Luke Modric is back from a one-game suspension and should start in the midfield alongside Casemiro and Tony Kroos.
  • While the other spot left out by Isco should be occupied by Vinicius Junior, with Gareth Bale starting on the opposite flank.
  • Karim Benzema will lead the attack for the Los Blancos.

Real Madrid Probable XI:

Courtois (GK), Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Bale, Vinicius, Benzema

Potential Game Changers, and total Dream11 points earned in the tournament:

  • Samuel Chukwueze
  • Santo Cazorla
  • Karim Benzema
  • Gareth Bale
  • Luka Modric

Likely to score:

  • For Villarreal: Gerard Moreno, Santo Cazorla, Moi Gomez
  • For Real Madrid: Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale

Captain and Vice-Captain options:

Karim Benzema: Picked up from where he left off last season. The former Lyon man has been on a free-scoring run ever since he moved into a more central role following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. He is an odds-on favorite to score the goal here.

This season:

  • Games: 02
  • Goals: 02

Benzema's last season stats:

  • Games: 44
  • Goals: 25
  • Assists: 08

Samuel Chukwueze: Marcelo is set to be in for a hard time as he comes face to face with Villarreal's Samuel Chukwueze who has both the pace and the physicality to trouble any defender. The 20-year-old Nigerian is already up and running for the season with a goal in the first league game.

Chukwueze's last season stats:

  • Games: 35
  • Goals: 06
  • Assists: 03

Santo Cazorla: With his precision and the ability to take on defenders, the 34-year-old former Arsenal man is very much a game-changer.

Cazorla's last season stats:

  • Games: 45
  • Goals: 06
  • Assists: 11

Moi Gomez: Looks revitalized after a successful loan spell at Huesca. Now he is very much the part of the first team plan under Javier Calleja. He has already found the back of the net against Granada.

More options from Real Madrid:

  • Gareth Bale
  • Luke Modric
  • Tony Kroos

Suggested combination:

The match will be updated on India Fantasy Premium Website.

RM vs VIL Dream11 potential winner:
Real Madrid should at least get a draw here.
