Villarreal Travel to the Capital

Villarreal travel to Madrid to face Real Madrid on Sunday, as the Yellow Submarine looks to start 2009 out with a big win. Jozy Altidore's team hasn't beat Real Madrid in 10 years, but with the reigning champions struggling this could be the weekend where that changes.

Both sides are level on 29 points in the table and a win here would strengthen either sides claim to second spot in a congested top half of the table (excluding Barcelona who are currently 10 points clear of Atl. Madrid in second spot). Off the field, Villarreal's captain, Marcos Senna, is denying (or flirting with, depending on who you believe) a move to Manchester City. Will transfer window drama effect the side?

The game takes place on Sunday, with kickoff coming at 1:00 p.m. ET. You can see the game live (we think) on Gol TV...

So happy to hear about Dempsey's heroics against Chelsea
