Atletico Madrid vs Villarreal Preview

Atletico Madrid vs Villarreal

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Wanda Metropolitano

Date: 28th October 2017

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

Atleti remain unbeaten in the league this season but that record could still see them miss out on a top four spot as they have continued to draw games because they are lacking fire power.

Their fans will be counting down until the day that their transfer ban is lifted and Diego Costa can finally put on their shirt again.

They have scored less than 3 goals in all their home league games this season while their last five games has also seen them score just 5 goals.

Antoine Griezmann has not been on best form so far this season and the team generally lacks ideas when they attack.

Villarreal were one of the few teams that almost always got away with a win at the Vincente Calderon.   Now that Atleti has moved, they will be hoping that the Wanda Metropolitano favours them also.

They have started the season quite brightly and they will be looking to continue here.

They lost their cup game in midweek to second division side Ponferradina, albeit they rested their best players in that game – a move which shows that they have prioritized this showdown.

They started the season with a poor defensive record but they have conceded just one goal in their last three games.

Villarreal have won 4 of their last 6 games against Atleti, losing just once and they have not conceded a goal in their last three away meetings in this fixture.
