Real Madrid to win to nil @ 33/20 with Marathonbet

Fourth in La Liga. 16 points behind leaders Barcelona. Real Madrid are struggling domestically and one of their biggest problems this season has been in front of goal.

In previous seasons Madrid could be relied upon to out-score opponents, especially with Cristiano Ronaldo in the team. Not this time around. No Madrid player has more than four La Liga goals at the midway point of the season.

It’s a problem that must be addressed. Barcelona’s significant spending to improve their attack in recent months puts Los Blancos under pressure to freshen up their tired attack.

And that will happen. More than likely in the summer. Mohamed Salah is among the stars being linked with a move to the Bernabeu, which would be a cruel chain reaction for Liverpool fans.

Whoever is brought in, it’s clear that new blood is needed. But the likes of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo will be determined to redeem themselves after a dismal few months that were well below expected domestic standards.

Villarreal certainly won’t be writing off their chances of getting a result against the misfiring forward line. The Yellow Submarines continue to impress and defy the odds with a slick brand of passing football. They’ve also received a huge sum of money to reinvest in their squad after selling star forward Cedric Bakambu to Chinese Super League side Beijing Guoan.

At £65 million, the Congolese striker is the most expensive African player of all time. He was having a prolific campaign, scoring 14 goals in 20 matches in all competitions. Their next highest scorer is Carlos Bacca with six. We back Madrid to make Villarreal question their sale with a comprehensive win.
