Villarreal vs Real Madrid Prediction

Real Madrid can regain top spot in La Liga when they face Villarreal this weekend. Los Blancos are favoured in sports betting for this encounter, with Barcelona not playing until the following day against Atletico Madrid in the capital. 

Villarreal have won five in a row in all competitions either side of the World Cup. Three of those wins, including a 5-1 thrashing of Cartagena last time out, have come in the Copa del Rey, however.

It is consecutive La Liga triumphs, but they have also won just four of their last 11 in Spain’s topflight. 

The expected goals numbers paint Villarreal as a top half team. Solid defensively and better in attack than their low goals tally indicates, this is a team which is upwardly mobile in the second half of the season.

Home form is obviously worth looking at here, too.

The Yellow Submarine have won four of their six at home this season, scoring 11 goals in the process.

Real Madrid, though, have been formidable on the road, winning seven of their eight and keeping clean sheets in three of their last four matches away from the Santiago Bernabeu.

While Real have won both matches since Spanish football resumed, they are still getting back up to speed.

Several of their squad exited the World Cup earlier than they would have liked, but others, including Luka Modric, went the distance and it might take some time for Los Blancos to get back to full strength. 

This has the makings of a very competitive match. A draw would be a decent result for both sides even with Real pursuing Barcelona at the summit.

Under 2.5 goals carries some value at 13/10, while it is worth considering 11/4 on the spoils to be shared.

Real Madrid vs Valencia Prediction

Winners of two of the three editions of the Supercopa de España since it embraced a four-team format, Real Madrid begin their defence of the trophy against Valencia on January 11th. Barcelona matchup with Real Betis in the other tie.

Valencia earned their spot here through a runners up berth in the Copa del Rey. Amid Real Madrid’s historic season, they won yet another league title to confirm their place in the Supercopa de España for a third straight season.

Naturally, the defending La Liga champions are comfortably favoured by the football betting markets. 

It wasn’t the best first part of the season for Valencia, who occupy a mid-table berth. Their underlying numbers were stronger than the results, indicating an uptick is on the way in 2023.

Beating this Real Madrid team, loaded with relentless silverware hunters, is a big ask early in the new year, however.

Real have won their last three against Valencia, scoring eight goals in the process.

Carlo Ancelotti probably won’t have his strongest team at his disposal, but there is sufficient squad depth for him to delve into to still name a side which could win this with relative ease.

The 1/2 price on Real to win this is in line with what most bettors would expect to see. Valencia have already suffered defeat against Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Villarreal this term.

Bettors are going to face something of a challenge to find value here. Real are going to name a strong team with Ancelotti keen to add another trophy to his collection, and despite such a star-studded squad, they actually haven’t been impacted too hard by the World Cup.

Take Real on the -1.5 handicap here.
