The RM vs VIL match preview –

Newly crowned Champions of the FIFA Club World Cup are Real Madrid and they will be going up against Villarreal FC in Spanish La Liga on Thursday. Real Madrid are the only team in the history of football who has won the UEFA Champions League title three times in a row. They are one of the most successful clubs ever and to see them struggle to even make top-four in their domestic league is a shocking sight to witness. They have lost their manager as well as the best player to have played for Real Madrid, and it will take this side some time to get back on top of the world.

Meanwhile, Villarreal FC are struggling to even make their claim to remain in the La Liga. Currently, in the 18th spot, they are once again on their way of being relegated back down to the second division of Spanish football. The baffling issue is that they don’t deserve to be in this place as some of the players in the team are really good. Maybe, they will be to save themselves from the blushes but certain fundamental things have to change for that to happen.
