Real Madrid host Villarreal in what’s expected to be a tough game after the Yellow Submarine appointed Marcelino Garcia as their coach.

Real Madrid predicted XI. Kepa, Vazquez, Rudiger, Alaba, Mendy, Valverde, Kroos, Modric, Bellingham, Brahim, Rodrygo.

Villarreal predicted XI: Jorgensen, Altimira, Albiol, Cuenca, Pedraza, Capoue, Parejo, Baena, Akhomach, Gerard, Sorloth.

Real Madrid’s right flank will need to be very careful with Villarreal’s Baena and Pedraza. Madrid will need to bounce back after the draw against Betis, and they should take advantage of Barcelona’s draw in Mestalla this Saturday in order to increase their gap over Xavi’s men.
