Sports Real Madrid - Villarreal: Schedule and where to watch the League match on TV

Real Madrid hosts Villarreal at the Santiago Bernabéu this Sunday, December 15, in the match corresponding to matchday 17 of the League.

Carlo Ancelotti's team is looking for an assault on the leadership or at least to continue stalking Girona, while Marcelino's team needs a victory with which to straighten out the season.

The white team faces the match against the Castellón team from second place in the standings with 39 points (with a balance of 12 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss), that is, two points less than Girona. Behind the Madridistas, five points away, are Atlético (with one game less) and Barcelona.

For its part, Villarreal occupies thirteenth position, 13 points from the European positions and only 6 from relegation.

Real Madrid has managed to turn its fiefdom into a fortress, since it remains undefeated at home. However, it is worth remembering that Villarreal emerged victorious from their last visit to the Bernabéu, being the nail that the Yellow Submarine wants to cling to, which, however, arrives in the capital without having won its last two league games.

To make up his starting eleven, Ancelotti will not be able to count on the absences of Courtois, Militao, Vinicius, Carvajal and Camavinga, while Arda Güler is a doubt. On the other hand, he could recover Tchouaméni.

Marcelino also has to do his best to present a guaranteed starting team at the Bernabéu, since Santi Comesaña, Denis Suárez, Yeremi Pino and Juan Foyth are in the infirmary. The Asturian coach also has doubts about Gabbia and Coquelin, both with discomfort.

The Real Madrid - Villarreal match will be played this Sunday, December 16, 2023, at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium starting at 9:00 p.m.

The league match between Real Madrid and Villarreal can be followed live on television through Movistar LaLiga. Likewise, you can also follow the minute by minute in real time through EL MUNDO live.
