Real Madrid will play their first La Liga game of 2023 at the El Madrigal on Saturday (January 7) against Villarreal, hoping to keep the heat on leaders Barcelona. With 38 points from 15 games, the reigning champions are behind the Blaugrana on goal difference, with the latter’s 1-1 draw with Espanyol allowing Los Blancos to close the gap.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side started the New Year with a 1-0 defeat of Cacereno in the Round of 32 of the Copa Del Rey, courtesy of Rodrygo’s 69th-minute winner. It was their third straight win across competitions and would them in good stead ahead of a daunting clash with a bogey team.

Villarreal, meanwhile, are slowly adjusting to life without Unai Emery, who left the club for Aston Villa in October. Following his departure, the Yellow Submarine faltered, failing to win four games across competitions. However, five wins from their last five games have restored a semblance of normalcy.

Three of them came in the Copa Del Rey, including in their latest outing on Tuesday — a 5-1 demolition of Cartagena in the third round.
