The Los Blanoc are in a great form as they have won all the four matches are at the top of the league. Last weekend their main star players Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale were missing due to injuries but that did not stop Zidane's men to register a win against Espanyol.
Real Madrid also achieved a new milestone last week after they won their 16th La Liga match on a trot equalling Pep Guardiola led Barcelona's record.
Villarreal too have had a decent start to the season this time. They have bagged two wins so far and drew two games. The Yellow Submarines are at the sixth position in the league table currently.
Kick-off: 11:30 PM (IST)
Venue: Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid
Real Madrid will welcome back two of their most important players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale this midweek against Villarreal.
Both the superstars were ruled out of competition last week due to injuries, but their return to the squad now will definitely strengthen Zidane's squad.
James Rodriguez who got his much awaited start last week scored a goal in his debut game of the season. But as it seems, with Ronaldo and Bale's return the Colombian is likely to be demoted to the bench again.
Keylor Navas will start in the goal. In front of him, Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Marcelo will compose the backline.
Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric will be there in the midfield and the front three will be Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Alvaro Morata.
Villarreal are likely to retain the same starting XI from last week.
