January 7, 2023 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Real Madrid will travel to Villarreal with the hope of reclaiming their lead in La Liga.

Defending champions Real Madrid will aim to reclaim top spot in La Liga when they travel to take on Villarreal at Estadio de la Ceramica. Los Blancos will feature in their first league game of 2023 on Saturday while hoping to hit the ground running in the quest to win the competition back-to-back.

As one of La Liga's heavyweights, Villarreal will be expected to give Madrid a good run for their money in the weekend's affair. After a turbulent period in the early days of Quique Setien's arrival as the new head coach, the Yellow Submarines have turned things around and are cruising on cloud 9. The Ceramica outfit is currently unbeaten in five games after failing to win the first four and will be poised to keep the run going.

At the moment, Villarreal are one point behind sixth-placed Real Betis and only three beneath fourth-placed Atletico Madrid. As a result, win over Real Madrid on Saturday would give the hosts the needed boost in the right direction. They will go into the weekend's game on the back of a Copa del Rey win on Tuesday, securing a 5-1 victory over FC Cartagena to progress to the last-16 stage of the competition.

For Real Madrid, the objective will be to extend a record that has been running for the past eight years when they take to the Ceramica on Saturday. Since 2015, Los Blancos have never lost to Villarreal in their backyard, and they will be eager to keep the run going while on the road. The defending champions come into the weekend's clash on the back of an important 2-0 win over Real Valladolid in their first game since the league resumed after the World Cup. Earlier this week, they progressed to the next round of the Copa del Rey by defeating Cacereno by a lone goal.

In La Liga so far, the Meregues boast the best away record this season, picking up 21 points from their eight matches on their travels. Against this backdrop, they will be poised to secure three important points with the hopes of claiming the top spot as Barcelona prepares to battle Atletico Madrid in a classic affair on Sunday.
