Villarreal vs Atalanta: Prediction and Betting Tips
Villarreal looking for a winning start
Villarreal will play in the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time since the 2011/12 season. Notably, they lost all their matches in that season. Hence, Unai Emery will look for better results starting Tuesday night against a very tough Atalanta side.
Group F arguably is one of the easiest groups in the UCL this season. Thus the Yellow Submarines will fancy their chances of reaching the knockout stages for the third time.
Three draws in their opening three La Liga fixtures saw Emery’s team take 11th position. On the positive side though their last draw was against champions Atlético Madrid which could be a great confidence booster.
Villarreal key stats
- Villarreal are winless in their last six matches
- The Yellow Submarines had two clean sheets in their last five six matches
- BTTS happened in 50% of Villarreal’s last four home matches
Atalanta aiming to find last season’s form
Atalanta also didn’t have a good start to their season in the Serie A. With a record of one win, a draw and a defeat the Nerazzurri are currently in tenth position. This is a side that enjoyed this tournament though. In fact, Gasperini’s team played in the group stages of the UCL in the past two seasons reaching the quarter-finals in 2019-20.
This will be Atalanta’s fourth fixture against a Spanish side out of their 51 matches in Europe. They won two and lost two with the last match being against Real Madrid which they lost 3-1 last March. In all cases Gasperini will hope to find last year’s form when Atalanta was a contender for the Serie A title.
Atalanta key stats
- BTTS happened in Atalanta’s all of their last four matches
- Atalanta scored in eight of their last ten matches
- The Nerazzurri had no clean sheets in their last four away games
Villarreal vs Atalanta Prediction
Villarreal will be looking for a win in this match, something they still couldn’t find in La Liga.
While La Dea hope for at least a point in Spain. That could keep their chances of finishing at least in second position.
Ultimately, we have a very equal match with similar results and form in recent weeks. Thus there will be very little that separates these two teams. As we see at Vbet the odds are almost identical, 2.53 for a Villarreal win and 2.63 for an Atalanta win.
Hence we will go for the total goals market and back under 3.5 goals which has odds of 1.49 at Vbet. In addition, at the combos section on Vbet there are many profitable best that we will choose for our second choice.
