Atletico Madrid vs Villarreal: Predictions and Betting Tips
Atletico Madrid are once again aiming to win La Liga like last season. The madrileños won their first two matches, but only by the narrowest of margins.
Atletico have made some solid investments in this transfer window, as they signed Rodrigo de Paul, one of the best players in Serie A last season, and now they are going for Dušan Vlahović, the Serbian striker from Fiorentina.
Atletico have not lost to Villarreal since 2018.
Villarreal’s start to the season has not been the best, with two draws in two games, having not conceded a goal but not scored a goal either.
After winning the Europa League last season, Villarreal’s objective for this season is to finish in one of the Champions League qualifying places, which will be difficult as Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla have been several steps ahead of them in recent years.
Villarreal have not won any of their last six matches against Atletico
- Three wins and two defeats for Atletico in their last five games
- Atletico have conceded at least one goal in four of their last five games
- Three draws and two defeats for Villarreal in their last five games
- Two consecutive matches without scoring for Villarreal
Atletico Madrid vs Villarreal Predictions
The difference between the two teams is not as big as in previous years, but Atletico still have a higher level of play than Villarreal. Moreover, the match is played at Atletico’s ground, where the supporters are some of the loudest and most animated supporters in Spain. Therefore, we think that Atletico are the favourites to win this match.
