Real Madrid v Villarreal - Preview

Real Madrid v Villarreal - Preview

The La Liga table doesn`t make for pretty viewing for Real Madrid supporters at the moment.

The huge 16-point gap between ourselves and the leaders Barcelona, means our hopes of retaining the title are very remote.

This Saturday we welcome Villarreal to the Bernabeu for a La Liga fixture, it`s a fixture that could be a tough one.

Villarreal are having a decent season, they sit sixth in the table and rarely lose games.

At his pre-match press conference, ahead of the game, Zinedine spoke about what lies ahead, remarking to the media,

'Our concentration will be at 100 per cent because we're up against very good opposition, who are having a fantastic season. They have not lost many games.

'We're going to try all we can to win the game. That's our goal and it's what we're preparing for. They know how to use the ball very well and they cover a lot of ground. They're a positive team and their results reflect that.'

With regards to team selection, we`re informed that Karim Benzema is back in training following his injury but will not be risked.

As for Villarreal, their defender Victor Ruiz will be absent through suspension whilst the trio of Bruno, Roberto Soriano and Andres Fernandez will all miss out courtesy of injuries.
