Villarreal – Atletico Madrid, La Liga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR VILLARREAL - ATLETICO
Villarreal does not stop losing. Back in the last analysis, when they lost to Valencia and we predicted this development, we wrote that fans are very anxious not to see the yellow submarine in this situation, which was similar last season when they were fighting to survive. The difference with Celta, who are 18th, is 5 points right now, but the nightmares of last campaign are still alive.
Atletico Madrid were disappointed after losing to Barcelona in the last round mainly because of new Ballon D’or carrier Leo Messi who scored at the end of the match. With this, Atletico have shown that they are not in the class of Barcelona yet and rather they are a team for top 4, not one who is not ready to fight for the title in La Liga. Atletico are not in a perfect position. For the time being teams such as Bilbao, Sevilla and Sociedad are doing better than them. Atletico’s problems are in attack because they it’s hard for tem to score and make draws very often.
Expert view : We expect to see 1 goal in both nets this time, no matter how low scoring Atletico’s matches are. Villarreal have a very strong attack, and this is especially evident in home games, and Atletico still hesitate at some points in defense, as their main defenders do not play because they are injured. Atletico are the better team overall, and Villarreal is in crisis, so the guests should score, too. Prediction – BTTS at 1.90.
Villarreal have not scored in just one match since the start of the season in the league
Villarreal have only 2 clean sheets at home in the league
