Villarreal, on the other hand, have been dropping points steadily in their recent fixtures. A thirteenth place spot on the league table does not look a good one and with a game against Aleti on the cards, things could turn lots bitter for the hosts.

In recent games, the visitors have been in fine form away from home. With a rather weak Villarreal side next up for Los Colchoneros, they will be aiming to secure maximum points in unfamiliar territory.

Villarreal v Atletico Madrid Team News

Last time out at Valencia, Villarreal were forced to head home empty-handed as the hosts had enough about themselves to see off the threat of the Yellow Submarines. Despite registering as many shots on target as their opposition, Valencia secured the three points, posting a 2-1 scorecard.

The Villarreal frontline were simply not clinical enough and Javier Calleja certainly has some work to do in that respect. He has to show his attackers where the goalpost is at, to save themselves the embarrassment they faced in their last match-up.

With Gerardo Moreno standing over a spot-kick during the first period, 13m away from the Jasper Cillessen in goal, Villarreal had a clear chance to salvage a point. However, Moreno fluffed his finish surrendering all three points to the opposition.

With just one point from their last five fixtures, the hosts have now slumped down to thirteenth on the standings.

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid were on the receiving end of a heart-breaking loss at home against the reigning champions Barcelona. Diego Simeone’s men laid blood and sweat bare on the pitch, holding off the Blaugrana for majority of the game.

However, the legendary Lionel Messi messed them up in the dying minutes of regular time, poking the ball home to return his team to the summit of the table while condemning Los Colchoneros to a defeat at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Despite the loss, Diego Simeone will give his players a pat on the back for the effort they put in throughout the course of the game. Only few teams could hold this Barcelona team for as long as they did. Without Messi’s genius, they could well have snatched a point in that fixture.

That defeat was just Atleti’s second of the campaign. They have maintained an unbeaten status in their last five outings in La Liga, proving their dominance on the road. The hosts, on the other hand, are without a win from their last two games here.

Their most recent game at Estadio de la Ceramica saw them hammered 3-1 by league strugglers Celta Vigo. Given the home side’s sharp decline in form in recent weeks, they are considered outsiders for this game and will do well to salvage a point.

Villarreal vs Atletico Madrid Predictions

Atletico Madrid are surely coming out of this one with the win. They should not even have to break a sweat to clinch maximum points against this foe in this fixture.

However, with Villarreal’s attackers firing on all cylinders in recent games, registering nothing less than eighteen goals in their last seven games on this ground, consider the Yellow Submarines to grab a couple of goals in this one.

Both sides are unlikely to walk out of this one with a clean sheet intact but expect the visitors to clinch the three points come Friday.
