The team lineup of the clash between Villarreal (2nd) and Real Madrid (4th, with 2 points less) are known. Kick-off is set at 4:15 p.m. this Saturday.
Deprived of Sergio ramos, Casemiro, Karim Benzema, but also Eder Militao, Alvaro Odriozola and Luka Jovic, the coach of the Merengues, Zinédine Zidane, aligns an unusual team, especially in the offensive sector.
With Hazard, without Vinicius
Eden Hazard is established on the left wing and Mariano Diaz is launched in point, while it is Lucas Vazquez who will occupy the right side (Dani Carvajal finding the starting eleven). Marcos Asensio, Vinicius and Rodrygo are therefore content with the sidelines.
In the midfield, Martin Odegaard is lined up alongside Luka Modric and Toni Kroos to challenge Unai Emery’s Yellow Submarine. Paco Alcacer finally unavailable, it is Carlos Bacca who will be the center-forward for Villarreal. On the bench, we find Francis Coquelin, Samuel Chukwueze or Take Kubo.
