Villarreal will aim to play the role of the spoiler this afternoon for Madrid, although they still have to win to ensure that they qualify for the Europa League next term. Unai Emery’s men sit in seventh place and need to better either Real Sociedad or Real Betis’ result today. However, the club will also have one eye on their Europa League final against Manchester United next week where they can secure a Champions League berth. They too have won back-to-back matches, beating Real Valladolid and Sevilla, giving them momentum to take into the contest.

Real Madrid have a simple formula this afternoon, they must win at all costs. Anything other than a victory will see the title handed to their rivals Atletico Madrid and even that might not be enough. If Atletico earn a point from their contest and Madrid earn a win, the title will be theirs on the basis of their head-to-record against their rivals. If Diego Simeone’s men win their match against Real Valladolid it’s all over anyway for Los Blancos. Zinedine Zidane may have one final ace up his sleeve in his final game, and his side are in good form having beaten Athletic Bilbao and Granada in their last two matches, but the odds are against them.

Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the LaLiga clash between Real Madrid and Villarreal at the Alfredo Di Stefano.
