Villarreal vs Atletico Madrid Preview

 

Villarreal vs Atletico Madrid

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium –  Estadio de la Cerámica

Date: 18th March 2018

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

Villarreal have been one of Atletico’s bogey teams over the past few seasons, but this season has seen a huge gap in terms of quality and Atleti would fancy taking all three points from this game.

Villarreal are not on their best form at the moment with only 2 wins from their last 9 games, however, their 2-0 win at Las Palmas last weekend may have boosted their morale ahead of this game.

They will now hope to finish in a European place.

Villarreal have regressed defensively this season with only 3 clean sheets from their last 15 games.

They are however, unbeaten in their last 5 games against Atleti.

The visitors have to get a win here as they try to close the 8 points gap between them and Barcelona with 10 games left to play.

They come into this in a good run of form that has seen them win 11 of their last 12 games, the only loss being to Barcelona.

Atletico responded well to that loss by winning three on the spin, scoring at least three goals in each of those games.

Both teams have netted in 4 of their last 6 games on the road.
