Villarreal host Real Madrid at the Estadio de la Cerámica in the round of last 16 of the Copa del Rey later today.
The Yellow Submarine will be confident going into this fixture after beating Los Blancos 2-1 earlier this month at the same venue. In fact, Real Madrid have not been able to win against Villarreal at the Estadio de la Cerámica since 2017.
Quique Setién is expected to make a couple of changes to the team that drew 1-1 against Celta Vigo last Friday. Raúl Albiol and Álex Baena, who were both suspended in La Liga, will most likely start this evening.
Predicted Villarreal lineup against Real Madrid
AS predict that Setién will utilise the following starting XI against Real Madrid: Pepe Reina – Juan Foyth, Raúl Albiol, Pau Torres, Alberto Moreno – Étienne Capoue, Dani Parejo, Álex Baena – Samuel Chukwueze, Gerard Moreno, Yéremy Pino.
The match is set to kick off at 9 pm local time.
