OverviewDespite being a household name for many Champions League fans, Villarreal didn’t make it into the topflight of Spanish football until 1998/99. The big boys of La Liga, Real Madrid, welcomed the Yellow Submarine with a 4-1 hiding at the Bernabéu on the first day of the season. They also left Valencia city with a 2-0 win later in the campaign.
Despite their success in Europe down the years, Villarreal have struggled in this one, only beating Los Blancos a handful of times. Madrid will remember a Karim Benzema-inspired 2-1 victory at home on the way to the 2020 title.
