Betting tips for Villarreal - Real Madrid 19.05.2018
The European champion visits the Ceramics Stadium to take on a Villarreal that ensured his presence in the next Europa League last day. Villarreal live a very irregular season, having dropped too early both in the Copa del Rey and the Europa League. The Castellón team occupies the 5th position in the Santander League, adding 60 points in 37 matches, already qualified in the next Europa League.
The Castellón team took some momentum after the dismissal of Fran Escribá and the arrival of Javier Calleja to the bench. The Yellow Submarine will have something more than 180 million budget this campaign, which dreams of getting back into the Champions League. The Villarreal have invested 42 million euros in the signings of 4 players: the Portuguese defender Rubén Semedo, for which they have paid 14 million euros to Sporting CP; the Turkish forward Enes Ünal, for which they pay another 14 million to Manchester City; the midfielder Pablo Fornals, for which they have paid the 12 million euros of his clause of rescission to Malaga; and the definitive purchase of goalkeeper Andrés Fernández to FC Porto, for which they have paid 2 million euros. The sale of Bakambu to Chinese football has meant the arrival of the team of Colombian Roger Martínez, which is not working.
In the last 6 matches, Villarreal have won 4 of the 5 that they have played at home.
Real Madrid returned to the 3rd position in the Santander League by defeating Malaga 0-2, and has established that advantage after beating Leganés last weekend and Valencia's draw against Eibar. The European champion tied at the Clasico in the Nou Camp (2-2) before falling in the Pizjuán (3-2) and thrashed Celta last weekend (6-0).
The European champion came to tie 1 in the Derby against Atleti the previous day. The Whites had placed third after beating Butarque CD Leganés in a game postponed in its day for the Club World Cup. Despite thrashing Deportivo Alavés at the Bernabéu (4-0), the team again failed in Barcelona against Espanyol (3 rd loss in 4 duels against Catalan teams since the failed proclamation of independence), an accident seen that later won at Getafe (3-1), in Paris (1-2), in Ipurúa (1-2), thrashed Girona at home (6-3), UD Las Palmas on the Island (0-3) and tied at 1 at home against Atlético.
In Europe, the Real Madrid closed their pass to their fourth final in 5 years eliminating Bayern Munich in the semifinals.
Neither team plays anything in this game, in which the Whites are going to shoot for the final of Kiev. If Villarreal squeezes them up, it is likely that they can draw at least a draw and end the season.
