Villarreal vs Atletico Madrid

SUN 28 FEB 2021 – KO 20:00


On Sunday night, Atletico Madrid face another test of their La Liga title credentials when Diego Simeone’s team visit Villarreal.


The Yellow Submarine have struggled for wins in La Liga of late, having failed to win any of their last six matches in the Spanish top-flight. However, a 1-1 draw at Athletic Club last time out in the league means that they have drawn five of those six winless matches.

The recent poor run of league form has seen Villarreal fall 11 points behind the teams in the Champions League spots.

Villarreal have won just one of their last seven home games in the Spanish top-flight. However, a 2-1 defeat against Real Betis in their last home league game ended a 12-match unbeaten run at the Ceramica.


Simeone’s team have hit a couple of major bumps in the road of late, having at one stage looked set to run away with the Spanish top-flight title.

However, after just one win in their last four league games, Los Rojiblancos are now just three points clear of arch-rivals Real Madrid at the top of La Liga. The visitors still have a game in-hand on the reigning champions, though.

One positive for Atletico Madrid has been their recent stellar away form, as they are six games unbeaten on their travels in La Liga. A 1-1 draw in their last away match at Levante ended a five-game winning run away from home in the Spanish top-flight.

Team News

Villarreal have several likely absentees through injury, including Francis Coquelin, Mario Gaspar, Alberto Moreno and Vicente Iborra.

Atletico look set to be without Hector Herrera through illness, while Yannick Carrasco and Jose Gimenez look set to miss out through injury.

Match Prediction

Neither team heads into this game in great form. Four of the last seven meetings between these two teams have ended in draws and we are backing this one to head in the same direction.
