Villarreal started well with six unbeaten games, five of which were wins when the season resumed. But a 1-4 defeat to Barcelona seems to have derailed their campaign. They did beat Getafe 3-1 after the Barcelona defeat but succumbed to a 1-2 loss against Real Sociedad. Both their defeats have surprisingly come at home.
They have the fourth-best away record in La Liga this season. Villarreal will be without Ramiro Funes Mori and Carlos Bacca both of whom are nursing injuries. Mariano Barbosa is also suspended for this match but Gerard Moreno and Vicente Iborra are both available. Madrid are without Marcelo and Nacho due to injuries while January signing Luca Jovic is a major doubt. Marcos Asensio and Eden Hazard are, however, expected to start.
