Sports Mole previews Saturday's La Liga clash between Villarreal and Real Madrid.

Real Madrid travel to Villarreal on Saturday looking to maintain their 100% start to the new La Liga season.

The visitors currently sit third in La Liga, behind Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Saturday's opponents Villarreal, who are all above them on goal difference.

Villarreal have been free-scoring so far in the league and have managed eight goals, including three in their win over Osasuna at the end of August.

Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that world record signing Gareth Bale will make his debut on Saturday, which could even be at left-back following injuries to Fabio Coentrao and Marcelo. Xabi Alonso and Raphael Varane are definitely out.

Bojan Jokic and Francisco Farinos remain likely to be out for the hosts.
