Villarreal vs. Real Madrid predictions for Thursday’s Copa del Rey clash Will the visitors bounce back from their Super Cup defeat at the weekend? Read on for our free match preview and betting tips
Villarreal has been successful recently at home, where they have won eight of their previous 11 games. In addition, they have won three of their last four La Liga games. Real Madrid, on the other hand, has gone three games without a victory and lost three of their last five road games.
Real Madrid hasn’t had the best of times since the World Cup; they haven’t won a game for the full 90 minutes in their past three outings, including a weekend 3-1 loss to Barcelona in the Super Cup final.
There is a significant likelihood that Carlo Ancelotti’s team will surrender because they have had trouble preserving clean sheets all season, keeping just two in their past 11 games.
And when they do concede, they struggle to recover; in their past four away games where they trailed, they suffered three losses and a tie.
