Los Blancos will need to beat Villarreal at home and wait for good news from the Estadio José Zorilla, where Valladolid need to win against Simeone’s men if they want to stand any chance of staying in the division, although they don’t depend only on their performance.
A win in Valladolid would make Atlético champions
Atlético are heavily favored by the odds, as they would automatically be champions if they win the game, but if Zidane’s men emerge victorious in the Spanish capital and Los Colchoneros draw or lose to Valladolid, then the glory would be for the 13-time European champions.
The hosts are second in the standings with 81 points, only two behind leaders Atlético, while Barcelona's hopes of fighting for the trophy ended after they lost to Celta at Camp Nou last weekend (1-2).
Zinedine Zidane's side are unbeaten in the Spanish league since the end of January, but the recent draws against Getafe, Real Betis and Sevilla have cost them the chance to be at the top of the table.
Villarreal eyeing a European spot
The hosts have dropped points in six of their 18 league matches at home and will try to avoid the same mistakes that saw them lose points unexpectedly in the past. However, Villarreal will be no easy opponent, even if they might be already thinking about the Europa League final against Manchester United.
Unai Emery’s men are sitting seventh in the table with 58 points, tied with Betis in sixth position, so they will also try to grab points to try to secure a European place next season in case they lose their European showdown against the Red Devils.
Real Madrid will be without the services of Toni Kroos, Ferland Mendy, Dani Carvajal, Eden Hazard and Lucas Vázquez, while it is yet to be seen if Sergio Ramos will take part in the game. The visitors will try to upset the favorites with Dani Parejo, Carlos Bacca and Paco Alcácer in the attacking line.
