Villarreal and Real Madrid have both had a turbulent season followed by many ups and downs, especially the visitors, who have been suffering a lot during the first half of the season, but both sides have wrapped up their spot in Europe for the next year, with the Yellow Submarine heading towards the Europa League for the fifth time in as many years. Villarreal are going through an excellent period, considering they’ve won four out of the previous five matches at the Estadio de la Cerámica, finally managing to demonstrate stability and consistency. Los Blancos failed to achieve a victory in their last two games on the road, losing 3-2 to Sevilla after three consecutive wins and a 2-2 draw with Barcelona at Camp Nou. With the Champions League final in sight, Zinedine Zidane might decide to give rest to some of his key players, and with the fact, Villarreal know how to play against the Spanish heavyweights, it’s somewise understandable why Los Merengues are not the favorites in this encounter.
Leonardo Suarez and Ramiro Guerra are struggling with knee injuries, while Bruno Soriano failed to recover from a long-lasting leg injury. Dani Carvajal and Cristiano Ronaldo skipped the game against Celta Vigo last weekend due to some physical problems, and their appearance still hangs in the balance.
