Watch Live: Villarreal Vs Real Madrid (Stream Now)

Los Blancos are four points clear of second-placed Barcelona going into the penultimate matchday in the Spanish top flight, so a win over Villarreal will be enough to wrap up their 34th title. It would cap off what has been a remarkable return to action for Real Madrid, who have won their past nine games, a run that saw them leapfrog Barcelona and take control of the title race.While a win on Thursday will guarantee the title, Real Madrid could still be crowned champions with a draw against Villarreal should Barcelona drop points at home to Osasuna – with the matches taking place at the same time.

But Los Blancos face a Villarreal side still with something to fight for, looking to keep hold of their Europa League group stage spot. The Yellow Submarine are currently fifth but sit three points ahead of Getafe and Real Sociedad, and will want to avoid being drawn into a head-to-head tiebreaker with both sides – which would see them drop below Getafe.
