Bienvenido al Juninho Edition de The Daily Merengue — a place where you can feel free to discuss all things football. Do not be alarmed by the overt RMCF bias. It’s in the name!

It’s Matchday

It is game day! Today Real Madrid plays 14th-placed Villareal in the Bernabeu. Villareal arrives winning 1/5 of their last La Liga games, so hopefully we can grab the 3 points.

Other key questions: will Lunin start? will Tchou be thrown back into the midfield? Will we see a Modric appearance or Ceballos?

Rival Watch

Both Barca and Atletico Madrid dropped points today, with the former tying Valencia and the latter losing by 2 goals to Bilbao. A win would be beneficial in separating Madrid from the rest of the pack and keeping pressure on Girona.

Endrick Visits Madrid
