Villarreal vs Real Madrid Prediction 12 February 2022

Villarreal hosts Real Madrid in round 24 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Saturday, February 12th at Estadio de la Ceramica (Villarreal)
A week ago, Unai Emery’s men once again confirmed that they expect to fight for a place in the top four. Villarreal was stronger than Betis with a score of 0-2. That victory was the sixth for the team in the last eight matches (one draw and one defeat). Such results allowed the Yellow Submarine to rise to the sixth line in the standings, and the gap to the Champions League zone was reduced to three points. Recently, Villarreal has looked very good at home. Four out of five previous home matches ended in victories (with one draw). All home results of the team look like this: three victories, three draws, and two defeats with a goal difference of 29-13. By the way, there is no team in LaLiga that scores more than the Yellows at home.

Real Madrid is experiencing a small decline. Last week, the team was eliminated from the Copa del Rey after a defeat to Athletic Bilbao. A few days later, the Whites hardly beat Granada (1-0) thanks to a late goal from Asensio in the 23rd round of the Spanish championship. And I will also note that in the round before last, Ancelotti’s men tied against Elche (2-2). Whatever the case, Real Madrid continues to confidently lead the standings with 53 points scored. The gap from the 2nd line is quite good (six points). Real Madrid is the most productive team in LaLiga with 48 goals scored. At the same time, the Whites don’t have any problems with defense — only 20 goals conceded.
In the first round, the head-to-head match turned out to be boring, and the teams didn’t score goals. In the previous season, Villarreal and Real Madrid also failed to determine the winner at Estadio de la Ceramica (1-1). What should we expect from the upcoming game? First of all, I have no doubt that it will be interesting. Villarreal is in great shape. The team is very close to breaking into the top four. What about Real Madrid? The team is on a predictable decline. However, due to the higher class, it is capable of scoring points even in confrontations with the toughest opponents. But if Real Madrid plays as it did against Athletic Bilbao, Elche, and Granada, Villarreal will have real chances to earn at least one point.

Prediction for the match:

Villarreal to win with +0.5 handicap
