Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Villarreal

Sports Mole rounds up all of Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's La Liga clash with Villarreal.

Real Madrid will be praying for a miracle this weekend when they welcome Villarreal to the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano for the final round of matches in the 2020-21 La Liga season.

Zinedine Zidane's side kept their title hopes alive with a 1-0 success at Athletic Bilbao on Sunday evening, during which Nacho struck a 68th-minute winner for Los Blancos.

The two-horse title race between Real and Atletico Madrid is set to go right down to the wire, and Zidane's side must overcome Villarreal and hope that their rivals slip up against Real Valladolid to be crowned champions.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
