Madrid out to sink Yellow Submarines


Real Madrid will look to make it back-to-back away wins in LaLiga when they visit Villarreal on Sunday night.

Los Blancos will also be looking to bounce back from a disappointing home performance against Real Valladolid last weekend to go into the international break with three points by sinking the Yellow Submarines.

Zinedine Zidane and his men seem enjoy playing away from home, with a 1-3 victory at Celta Vigo on the opening weekend of the season vastly outshining a disappointing draw on home soil last time out.

Luka Modric will also be back and available for selection and is expected to go straight back into Zidane’s starting XI at the Estadio de la Cerámica. Modric will come in for the injured James Rodríguez.

Gareth Bale is expected to continue in a starting role, with Eden Hazard back training but not yet available for selection. The Welshman enjoys his outings at Villarreal, scoring on his debut and bagging three goals in his five matches there.

Karim Benzema will also go into the game in good form, scoring in each of his two LaLiga matches so far. The Frenchman also enjoys his travels, bagging six goals in his last seven away matches in LaLiga.

Los Blancos will be keen to avoid any early season drama by picking up three points that would see them extend their advantage over Barcelona after the Catalans dropped two points at LaLiga newsboys Osasuna on Saturday.
