Villarreal – Atl. Madrid : Preview & Prediction
Atlético Madrid, which has seen its lead over Real Madrid (3 points) reduced in recent weeks, will be in danger on the lawn of Villareal … The Liga leader will be under pressure on the lawn of the 6th since the Colchoneros n ‘have won more during their last 5 visits (2 draws and 3 losses). The Madrid club is currently going through turbulence as the latter remains on 2 failures against Levante (0-2) at home and against Chelsea (0-1) in the Champions League. With 5 points taken during the last 4 days (1 victory, 2 draws, 1 defeat), the formation of Simeone has just lost 7 points on Real !. Villareal could put Atlético a little more in doubt … The “yellow submarine” looks in the rearview mirror since the latter sees Betis Sevilla, 1 point behind, being a big threat for a European qualification . The formation of Unai Emery, who has lost only 1 game against Betis (1-2) in the last 8 days, is an eye-catching team and the latter has 1 draw in Bilbao (1-1) and 2 wins in Europa League against Red Bull Salzburg (2-0 and 2-1) in their last three outings.
Atlético Madrid is going through a bad patch: only 1 victory in its last 5 matches played.
The Colchoneros have lost their last two meetings against Levante and Chelsea.
Villareal have lost only 1 time in their last 5 games.
The “yellow submarine” has been undefeated for 3 meetings.
Villareal is undefeated at home against Atlético in their last 5 oppositions (3 wins and 2 draws).
Driven by his qualification for the Round of 16 of the Europa League and his unbeaten streak against Atlético Madrid at home, Villareal has a good chance of catching the leader in his Ceramica stadium.
