Real Madrid vs Villarreal: Win 2-1, Los Blancos Win the Spanish League!

Real Madrid is confirmed to be champions of the Spanish League this season. This was after they beat Villarreal 2-1 in Week 37.
At Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, Friday (17/7/2020), Los Blancos took the lead thanks to goals from Karim Benzema (29 ‘, 77’). Meanwhile, Villarreal could only reply through Vicente Iborra’s goal in the 83rd minute.

With this result, they accumulated 86 points. With one match remaining, Madrid can’t be pursued by Barcelona, which at the same time lost 1-2 to Osasuna and only collected 79 points

The course of the match

Madrid already had a chance in the 4th minute. Dani Carvajal fired a shot, but Villarreal goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo was able to anticipate it. Three minutes later, it was Karim Benzema’s turn to be thwarted by the 31-year-old goalkeeper.

Madrid pressure continued again in the 16th minute. Getting a space in front of the penalty box, Luka Modric fired a long-range shot, but Asenjo managed to ward it off.

GOAL! Madrid excelled in the 29th minute. Starting from Casemiro’s success in winning the ball from Sofian Chakla’s control, the ball was immediately passed to Modric, who then provided feedback to Benzema. With one shot from close range, the French striker beat Asenjo, making it 1-0.

Meanwhile, Villarreal appeared sluggish in the first half. Having only 39 percent possession of the ball, they failed to fire a single shot on goal. 1-0 score lasted until the break.

Entering the second half, Madrid still dominated. Carvajal got another chance in the 54th minute, but his finishing was again saved by Asenjo.

Villarreal got a good chance in the 63rd minute through Javier Ontiveros, but his free-kick was still far from the mark. Nine minutes later, he got another chance, but his shot was easily caught by Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

In the 74th minute, Madrid received a penalty after Sergio Ramos was violated by Sofian Chakla. Initially, Ramos was the executor. He passes the ball to Benzema who puts the ball into the net, but the penalty is repeated as Benzema goes into the box before Ramos kicks in.

The executor changed to Benzema, who managed to complete his job. Score 2-0 for Madrid.

Behind two goals, Villarreal did not give up. In the 83rd minute, Vicente Iborra’s header from Mario Gaspar’s cross beat Courtois. GOAL! The score becomes 1-2.

But Villarreal’s resistance ended there. Until the end of the match, no more goals were scored. Score 2-1 for Madrid lasted until the long whistle.

Real Madrid vs Villarreal Prediction, Spanish League May 22, 2021

Predictions for Real Madrid vs Villarreal in the last week of the 2020/21 Spanish La Liga match, Saturday (22/5/2021). Los Blancos must win in this match to determine the La Liga title

Real Madrid is currently two points behind leaders Atletico Madrid. Los Blancos must win the match when they host seventh place, Villarreal, at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.

However, Madrid also hopes that Atletico will fail to win against Real Valladolid who played at the same time. If Atletico lose then Madrid has the right to defend the title

Zinedine Zidane’s squad will also win if Atletico draw at Valladolid’s home. If Atletico draw and Madrid win then the points will equal 84, and Los Blancos will win by taking a head-to-head lead over their city rivals.

To ensure securing the three points, Zidane is ready to field his best squad in this final match. The trio of Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo Goes, and Karim Benzema seem to have been prepared to fill Madrid’s front line.

However, Madrid could not play Toni Kroos in this crucial match after the German international tested positive for Covid-19. The captain Sergio Ramos is also still injured and cannot be played.

Meanwhile, at the Villarreal camp, coach Unai Emery is also struggling to ensure they finish in the Europa League zone position. But they also need to be careful in facing Madrid to avoid injury to players.

Apart from facing Madrid, Unai Emery is also preparing to face Manchester United in the Europa League final. Of course, the former Arsenal coach will arrange his players carefully against Madrid.

The trident of Yeremi Pino, Bacca, and Gerard Moreno will be a mainstay on Villarreal’s front lines. Moreno also deserves to watch out for Madrid where this season he has netted 23 goals in La Liga or is 1 goal ahead of Benzema.

This match is not only crucial it will also be interesting. The two teams’ last meeting this season ended in a 1-1 draw at Villarreal, where Madrid took the lead through Mariano’s goal before being rewarded by Gerard Moreno’s penalty in the second half.
