ATLETICO MADRID VS VILLARREAL PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Continuous victories helped Atletico Madrid win the title last season and are leading La Liga after the first 2 rounds. Won the last 28/40 matches with 70 goals and only conceded 26 times, the attack is not so excellent but the defense is really different. The pragmatic play has become the trademark of Atletico – Diego Simeone, the efficiency is unquestionable. Joao Felix’s injury can affect attack power, but El Cholo has the most powerful force in the remaining routes. 2 minimum victories 2-1 at Celta and 1-0 against Elche is the perfect start, the defending champion will continue to show their old age and willingness to punish the opponent’s mistakes.
Villarreal finished last season in 7th place and excellently won the Europa League. However, Unai Emery’s army is starting not well with 2 draws with the score 0-0 against Granada and Espanyol. The success of the Golden Submarine is based on the excellent performance of the defense and effective counter-attacking style. The statistics of keeping clean sheets in the last 4/5 matches in La Liga show that the defense is very solid. However, the attack is causing great disappointment, 2 consecutive matches against opponents that are much less appreciated. With the goal of bringing back 1 point, Villarreal is fully capable of causing difficulties for the home strikers.
Atletico Madrid’s dominant position can be predicted with their very high form. However, the solid play of these two teams is difficult to bring about a game with many goals. The last 5/6 confrontations of the two teams were no more than 2 times, the last 3 matches of Villarreal also had similar results.

Metropolitano is an easy place to go to any team. In the last 20 La Liga matches, Atletico Madrid won 16, only 1 defeat and 11 conceded times. The home-field advantage is always fully utilized by Atletico, 3 meetings with Villarreal they also brought 2 wins and 1 draw.
Atletico Madrid’s performance is also completely convincing with 5 consecutive victories in the domestic league. That is also the turning point that helped Simeone’s students win last season in the final rounds. On the other side, the guests are having trouble catching up, after the defeat in the European Super Cup Villarreal only got 2 draws against Granada and Espanyol. Unstable performance as well as somewhat lost strength, Villarreal can hardly make a surprise. 3 points for students of Simeone is the task completed within reach.
