La Liga 2013, Match Thread: Villarreal Vs. Real Madrid

Denis Doyle

A banged-up Los Blancos get ready to board the Yellow Submarine, as the two sides get ready to do battle shortly in Jornada Four. Hopefully all our friends are indeed aboard.

The international break is mercifully over and it feels great to have some La Liga action to enjoy!

Real Madrid's starting XI:

Lopez, Ramos, Pepe, Carvajal, Nacho, Modric, Illarramendi, Isco, Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema

Villarreal's staring XI:

Asenjo, Gaspar, Mussachio, Dorado, Jaume, Aquino, Trigueros, Bruno, Cani, Dos Santos and Pereira

Madrid substitutes:

Casillas, Khedira, Casemiro, Jese, Morata, Di Maria and Llorente

Wow! Bale and Illarramendi get their first starts for Real Madrid, while Isco and Ronaldo are healthy enough to play as well. Ancelotti is not playing games with this lineup ahead of the Champions League.

Enjoy the match!

HALA MADRID!
