Real Madrid is going to play against Villarreal in their upcoming fixture in Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Madrid, Spain. The Los Blancos would try to register their first win of 2018 in this game because if they are still to continue their league leader's goal, they have to win every point because their fierce rivals Barcelona has already a two digits point difference from Real Madrid. Moreover the home team remains undefeated in their last sixteen home games so Real Madrid would try to jump for the three points in this game.
Real Madrid is currently ranked 4th on the points table with 32 points managed from the nine wins and five draws but a lot is expected from them because of the star players they have on the team and things are not going according to the plan for them.
For the away team, they are happy to hold the 6th position on the points table with 28 points registered by 8 wins and 4 draws. The away team may create some trouble for the Real Madrid's defence but Real Madrid remains undefeated in their last 16 home games so this match is also expected to follow that course.

Real Madrid has drawn their last two games in all competitions, with Zinedine Zidane's side needing to get a league win under their belts in 2018.
The hosts have won five of their last six league games at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, and Los Blancos cannot afford to keep dropping points if they are to try and catch Barcelona at the top of the table.
Villarreal has lost just one of their last competitive games, with Javi Calleja's men now looking to press on after the sale of Cedric Bakambu.
