Live in-play betting – 

Antoine Griezmann scored the 100th goal of his career to help Atletico Madrid beat Espanyol last week.

Overall the team has been in sensational form recently.

They are yet to taste defeat in their last 6 games, winning 5 of those, and drawing the other.

Diego Simeone’s men have conceded only 4 goals in their last 11 matches, keeping 7 clean sheets in the process.

They are currently 3rd on the league table with 68 points 3 more than 4th placed Sevilla.

Villarreal are currently 5th on the league table, 11 points separate them from their host, and their recent form is indifferent.

They have lost 3 and won 3 of their last 6 matches, they would hope to get a win in this encounter to keep their place ahead of Real Sociedad who are just 2 points behind them.

Although they are currently in the Europa league spot, a loss in this match and a win for their rivals would see them slip out of a European spot.

After winning 4 consecutive away matches, Villarreal have won only 1 of their last 3 away games.

This is one of the biggest tests Villarreal will face before the end of the season against an incredibly good defensive side.
