Deportivo Alaves vs Villarreal
La Liga, Spain
Villarreal will be looking to move into the top-4 when they host a struggling Deportivo Alaves at the El Madrigal. With Real Madrid playing later in the day, Villarreal can win and replace them at the 4th spot and remain there if Real Madrid fail to win. On the other hand, Deportivo Alaves will be in danger of coming back into the relegation zone if they fail to get a point from their visit.
