Worth Mentioning

The last meeting between the two teams ended in a win for Villarreal, who prevailed with 2:1 at home earlier in January, 2023. Real Madrid were unable to win any of the previous three head-to-head clashes, registering 1 defeat and 2 draws in the process. Playing at home turned out advantageous in the latest 10 meetings. The hosts went all guns on their opponents and secured 4 wins and remained unscathed in 10 of 10. The teams were unable to come up with a winner in many of the latest encounters, as draw was the outcome in 6 of the preceding 10 matches. Out of the last five games, two yielded over 2.5 goals and three witnessed goals scored at both ends of the field. Over this span of time, Villarreal proved successful in keeping two clean sheets, and Real Madrid prevented their opponents from scoring also in two of the games. The last five matches between the two teams finished with 8 goals scored in total.

On January 13th, Villarreal ended in a 1:1 stalemate with Celta Vigo away from home in a La Liga encounter. Prior to their most recent game, the club was on a streak of three consecutive victories and continues to be undefeated in seven games. Across the Yellow Submarine last 10 encounters, being the host or playing away was not really a factor that affected the outcome. The teams playing at home won four games, and the visitors also won four. Only two of the team’s most recent 10 matches ended in draws. Three of the preceding five Villarreal clashes resulted in over 2.5 goals, with both sides scoring in all five of those. From a statistical point of view, their last 5 outings produced an average of 3.20 goals per game.

In their most recent match, Real Madrid played against Barcelona on Sunday in the Spanish Super Cup final, with the final score of the game being a 1:3 home defeat. Los Blancos are going through an unfortunate streak of three games without a single victory, registering two defeats and one draw. The home crowd, usually referred to as the “12th player,” has failed to significantly impact Real Madrid’s recent ten meetings, as they ended in 5 home wins and 3 away wins. Only two of the club’s last 10 encounters resulted in draws. Looking at the team’s previous five games, it becomes apparent that two featured over 2.5 goals and three witnessed goals at both ends. Throughout these meetings, Real Madrid’s efforts paid off, as the team managed to keep goals out of their net twice, while scoring at least one in all five. During their last five games, the teams involved scored 12 goals in total.
