Atletico Madrid and Villarreal will lock horns in one of this weekend’s fixtures in the Spanish top flight. Atletico head into this tie on the back of a 6-0 thumping of Scottish side Celtic in the Champions League. That victory, pushed Simeone’s men to the summit of Group E, with 8 points from 4 matches, thereby brightening their chances of making the knockout phase. On Sunday, Atletico’s attention will shift to the domestic scene as the look to avoid 2 league defeats in a row, having lost 2-1 away at Las Palmas last time out. That loss was Atletico’s first since a 3-0 defeat at Valencia back in September. As things stand, Atletico Madrid are 4th on the log with 25 points from 11 games, 6 points behind leaders Girona who have been the biggest surprise of the season.
For Villarreal, it is a chance to push for a second consecutive win at Wanda Metropolitano, having beaten Atletico 2-0 in their last meeting on the road. That was Villarreal’s win against Simeone’s men in 10 matches. Also, Atletico Madrid have struggled in their last 3 meetings against the Yellow Submarines, losing one and drawing 2. With this run of result, we expect Villarreal to be highly motivated as they look to bounce back from a 3-2 home loss to Atletico Bilbao in their last La Liga game. A positive result here could help rejig what has been a terrible start to the season for Juan José Rojo Martín’s men
Both teams are heading into this game on the back of defeats in their last domestic outings. This means they will both be desperate for points just to recover from the pain of those losses they suffered as a result, we are anticipating a keenly contested tie between these sides. Therefore, for out Atletico Madrid Vs Villarreal prediction, we expect less than four goals.
