Villarreal – Atletico Madrid (La Liga)

Villarreal and Atletico Madrid are up against each other this Sunday at La Ceramica, for the 29th round of La Liga. Villarreal are losing their momentum in La Liga, they have only won 2 of the last 7 consecutive matches in the competition, and have put their 6th place in the league table at risk. Atletico Madrid, on their turn, have been able to maintain their amazing form and arrive here with 11 victories in their last 12 consecutive matches, in all competitions.

Villarreal are in 6th place with 44 points, from 13 victories, 5 draws and 10 defeats, with 38 goals scored and 32 goals conceded. After crashing out of Europa League, the Yellow Submarine have no other competition to worry about, with their main goal now being to keep this 6th place or to steal the 5th spot from Sevilla, who is only 1 point above them. However, with only two victories in their last 7 league matches, this 6th place is now at risk, with Girona only 1 point behind. The Yellow Submarine have lost 2 of their 6 home matches since the start of 2018, against Girona and Alavés, winning 3, with 9 goals scored and 8 goals conceded.

In their last 5 official matches, Villarreal has a record of 2 victories and 3 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 0-1 defeat against Lyon, for the Europa League. This result was followed by 1-0 against Getafe, a 1-0 defeat against Eibar, a 0-2 defeat against Girona, and in their last match, a 0-2 victory against Las Palmas. Andrés Fernández and Ramiro Guerra are both out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Asenjo – Gaspar, González, Ruiz and Costa – Trigueros, Rodri and Soriano – Fornals – Sansone and Bacca.

laliga competiçaoAtletico Madrid, on their turn, are in 2nd place with 64 points, from 19 victories, 7 draws and 2 defeats, with a 48 goals scored and 12 goals conceded. The Colchoneros are in fantastic form, both in La Liga and Europa League, arrive here after trashing Lokomotiv Moscow in Russia by 5-1, and have qualified to Europa League quarter finals. They have won 11 of their last 12 consecutive matches in all competitions, with the remaining match being a defeat against Barcelona, at Camp Nou.

In La Liga, the team has won 7 of their last 8 matches. Diego Simeone’s men have played 4 away league matches since the start of 2018, won 3 and lost 1, and have scored 7 goals, conceding 3 in the process. The defensive organization is something worth emphasizing in this team, they have kept 8 clean sheets from their 14 away league matches. The Colchoneros are going through their best moment of form this season, and since slipping up against Barcelona in LaLiga, Atleti have responded with three consecutive competitive wins, in which they have conceded one goal and scored 11.

In their last 5 official matches, Atletico Madrid has a record of 4 victories and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 4-0 victory against Leganés. This result was followed by a 1-0 defeat against Barcelona, a 3-0 victory against Lokomotiv Moscow, for the Europa League, a 3-0 victory against Celta Vigo, and in their last match, a 1-5 victory against Lokomotiv Moscow, for the Europa League. Felipe Luis and Kevin Gameiro are both out due to injuries.

Probable Lineups: Oblak – Vrsaljko, Godín, Giménez and Hernández – Ñíguez, Gabi, Koke and Vitolo – Griezmann and Costa.

Villarreal won 4 of their last 8 direct clashes, tying 2 and losing the remaining 2.

This is a game that, given the style of play of both teams, is usually a meeting with few goals, since they are two teams well organized at the back. However, with the huge rise of form of Atletico Madrid and the loss of momentum of Villarreal, it is of greater value to bet on the victory of Madrid in this meeting.
