Ahead of a massive summer overhaul, Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane are going through what remains of a poor campaign. They host 15th place Villarreal next and whatever be the outcome of the game, a third-place finish looks the most likely achievement for the Los Blancos this season. Last week’s defeat at the hands of Rayo Vallecano gave us a glimpse of the rebuilding task at the hands of Zidane with his team second best throughout the contest. With just one win in the last four games, Madrid will be eager to bounce back in front of home fans. Real Madrid vs Villarreal - Live Football Score.
Marcelo is set to be dropped by Zidane for the game after a poor show in the last game and young full-back Sergio Reguilon could start in his position.
