Date: 13 January 2018
Venue: Santiago Bernabeu
Real Madrid will look for a return to winning ways in LaLiga when they host Villarreal at the Santiago Bernbeu.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 17h30.
Los Blancos currently sit 16 points behind leaders FC Barcelona, after they drew 2-2 with Celta Vigo last weekend.
Zinedine Zidane's charges find themselves in fourth position, although they head into the match on the back of a 2-2 draw in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday evening.
Real will once again be without the services of Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema for this afternoon's encounter.
Villarreal, meanwhile, come into this match unbeaten in their last three matches, which include two wins and a draw.
However, the Yellow Submarine recently lost the services of last season's top scorer Cedric Bakambu, who moved to the Chinese Super League.
When these two sides met in this fixture last season, they played to a 1-1 draw while the reverse fixture ended 3-2 in favour of Real.
Here's how they line up:
Real: Navas; Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric; Isco; Bale, Ronaldo.
Villarreal: Asenjo; Mario, Bonera, Álvaro, Jaume Costa; Castillejo, Rodrigo, Trigueros; Raba, Fornals, Bacca
