Many are not banking on Atletico Madrid to put forth any form of title challenge this season. They are some way-off rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona in terms of quality and squad depth. However, they have already begun the season amazingly.

Meanwhile, Villarreal are also enjoying a decent start to the new campaign. They currently sit fourth on the standings, having garnered a decent seven points from four games. Expect a strong showing from Emery’s men here as they look to upstage Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid vs Villarreal Team News

Ever since Atletico Madrid lifted the La Liga trophy in 2013, they haven’t come any close to repeating that magnificent feat. Bettered by the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid, Los Colchoneros have watched those two rivals share title wins in recent times.

Surely, Diego Simeone will be doing everything humanly possible to return his side to the pinnacle of Spanish football. However, he will have his work cut-out to make this a reality, given the strong competition in the La Liga.

Also, Atleti are not as lavish as their rivals in the transfer window, often favoring cheap deals and selling their star players to earn some profit. With this kind of transfer philosophy in place, Atletico Madrid will struggle to make any headway.

That said, there is a new face at the Wanda Metropolitano in person of Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan forward was snapped up on a free transfer after his Barcelona contract ran out this summer. Though the player favored a move to Juventus, his move to Italy was chalked off due to some issues over his visa.

Now, the former Liverpool striker is sporting the famous ‘Red and White’ Atletico colors and will be looking to help deliver trophies this season. His debut was one to remember, leading Los Rojiblancos to a well-deserved victory over Granada.

With Simeone’s men already four ahead, Suarez came off the bench, in the final ten minutes, to register a brace as Atleti roared to an emphatic 6-1 victory. The 33-year-old could not have asked for a better debut than this one.

Last time out, Atletico Madrid failed to build on their Granada success when they took on Huesca at Estadio El Alcoraz. Profligacy the major culprit, Simeone’s men could not find a route past the opposition’s defense and had to settle for a goalless draw.

Meanwhile, Villarreal are currently in decent form. Having finished fifth last season, the Yellow Submarine will be looking to breach the top-four this time around. They look well on-course to making this dream a reality.

They easily defeated relegation candidates Alaves 3-1 on the last matchday to register their second win of the season. If they manage to keep things tight at the back, Villarreal could successfully squeeze out some points out of Atleti here.
