Last trip for the Liga champion

Last trip for the Liga champion

There are only two La Liga matches left before the Champions League final. The champion plays his last away match today with a trip to Villarreal on matchday 37 (7 p.m.). Ancelotti’s men have had nine wins in a row and, this evening, they will want to extend this streak at the Ceramica stadium. They will have to face a rival who is playing for his presence in Europe next season.

Our team displays a high level during its last championship matches after having been crowned champion last May 4. Proof of this is that she scored nine goals against Granada and Alavés, maintaining her spectacular offensive pace with 83 goals scored. Another key is defensive work. After keeping a clean sheet for four matches, Real Madrid beat their record for matches without conceding a goal in La Liga (20).

“The match against Villarreal is important to keep the rhythm of the competition,” Ancelotti said in press conference before the match against Villarreal. With the exception of the injured Tchouameni and Alaba, the Italian can count on his entire squad on the list of summoned players. Among them is Bellingham, who has scored in his last three La Liga games and is our team’s top scorer in the league (19). The Englishman is well accompanied by Vini Jr. (15 goals) and Arda Güler, who found the net last week against Granada and Alavés.

Villarreal’s strengths
The local team started the day in eighth place with a record of 14 wins, 9 draws and 13 defeats. They have won in four of their last five La Liga matches. Furthermore, she is fighting to finish in the qualifying places for Europe next season. Sørloth is their top scorer with 19 goals in the competition.
