The two teams have been on a free-scoring run in recent times and though the pressure is off for them now, this tie should produce a flurry of goals

Villarreal welcome Real Madrid to Estadio de la Ceramica for their last La Liga match this season on Saturday night.

The Yellow Submarines come off the back of a 4-2 away victory over Deportivo La Coruna last Saturday and will be full of confidence in keeping their top five hopes alive.

With a three-game winning streak on their turf, Bet365 tips them at (2.60) to pull off a big win in this encounter.

With the visitors’ eyes fixed on clinching their third European title in a row, Zinedine Zidane will take no risk in featuring his star players just a week before the Champions League final against Liverpool in Kiev. Thrashing Celta Vigo 6-0 last Saturday was enough reason to have them chalked up at (2.50) as slight favourites to win here.

A no winner, no vanquish state after the end of 90 minutes is priced at a mouth-watering (3.60). This outcome has surfaced in only two of their last seven meetings.

While Javier Calleja’s charges have won four of their last five home matches, Los Blancos have failed to record success in their last two outings away from home. Thus, the hosts can be backed to avoid defeat, which paid out in three of their last five showdowns, at odds of (1.55).

Four of the last seven head to head clashes between both teams has seen either side win the first 45 minutes. Therefore, it’s enticing backing the same result here at odds of (1.40) with the same betting outfit.

Calleja’s men have found the net in six of their previous seven matches in their backyard and Zidane’s side have had the same outcome on the road. So, it seems generous to back goal action at both ends at (1.25).

Punters should go for an outcome that sees three or more goals scored in this clash. This has happened in Real's last five away outings and the home side's previous four matches on their turf. Bet365 offers odds of (1.25) for a possible outcome.
