REAL MADRID V VILLARREAL: LaLiga TV, live streaming

Everything you need to know ahead of Los Blancos' meeting with the Yellow Submarine in the Primera Division this weekend.

Real Madrid will look to return to winning ways in La Liga on Saturday following last weekend's disappointing draw away to Celta Vigo.

That 2-2 tie at Balaidos left Los Blancos provisionally 14 points behind leaders Barcelona and their hopes of retaining the title they won last season now look slim, despite a game in hand.

Zinedine Zidane's side are in fourth, just three points above Sevilla in fifth and one more clear of this weekend's rivals, Villarreal.

The Bernabeu has not witnessed many high scoring games this season and we think another tight encounter is on the cards on Saturday afternoon

The testing period for Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane continues as his side look for their first league win since 9 December this weekend.

Los Blancos drew their opening league match of 2018 2-2 at Celta last week and then could only record the same scoreline against second division Numancia in the Copa Del Rey on Wednesday night, all of which has increased the pressure on the manager.

Villarreal, meanwhile, were knocked out of the Copa on Wednesday by Leganes, although in the league they sit just four points behind Real Madrid and last season they recorded a creditable 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu.

Team News

Captain Sergio Ramos suffered a muscle strain in training recently and is still not ready to return for Real.

Striker Karim Benzema also misses out due to an injury sustained in the Clasico defeat to Barcelona last month and midfielder Marcos Llorente is doubtful with a shoulder problem he picked up in the 2-2 draw against Numancia in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday.

Right-back Dani Carvajal was suspended for the trip to Balaidos following his red card in the Clasico loss to Barcelona before Christmas, but the Spain defender is available again for Los Blancos and Zidane has no other players banned for Saturday's game against Villarreal.

With Ramos still out, Nacho and Raphael Varane should start in central defence for Real Madrid at home to Villarreal.

Meanwhile, Carvajal is set to return at right-back after missing the 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo through suspension.

In attack, Gareth Bale will start alongside Cristiano Ronaldo in the absence of Benzema. The Welsh winger scored both of Madrid's goals at Balaidos and was rested for the cup clash at home to Numancia on Wednesday.

After back-to-back wins away to Celta Vigo and Valencia, Villarreal could only draw 1-1 at home to Deportivo in La Liga last weekend.

The Yellow Submarine beat Leganes 2-1 at the Estadio de la Ceramica on Wednesday, but went out of the competition on away goals.

In La Liga, Javi Calleja's side are in sixth, just four points behind Madrid, but they will be without midfielder Bruno Soriano, defender Ruben Semedo and reserve goalkeeper Andres Fernandez on Saturday, while forwards Nicola Sansone and Roberto Soldado are doubtful.
