Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villareal).
Villarreal has been winless for the past six games in a row, following a 1-1 draw on the road against Athletic Bilbao last time out in the campaign. They will host after defeating Salzburg in the UEFA Europa League knockout games with a 4-1 aggregate. The home team has picked up 37 points from 8 wins and 13 draws in their 24 league appearances so far this season.
Atletico Madrid needs to react soon after their recent dip in form in the league. Los Indios has dropped points thrice in the last five fixtures. And has lost the first leg of their Champions League fixture with Chelsea last time out in their overall schedule. Their previous encounter was at home, and they shared the spoils with Levante in a 1-1 encounter.

Villarreal vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Atletico Madrid is likely to win the clash with their squad strength in the league this season. They have kept their place intact at the top of the table as it stands. Their recent dip in form will affect their morale of the players in the middle.
Villarreal is on a winless run in the league and 8 wins in their 24 appearances is not a bright record as they come into the fixture. Four of their last five matches in their schedule have ended in a draw. The home team enjoys the ground advantage in the middle, but will not likely come into use against the visitors.
Furthermore, the away team has scored 45 goals in their 23 appearances in the league so far. This shows we can expect a couple of goals in ninety minutes. Hence, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be a suitable option in the encounter. The draw no bet over Atletico Madrid will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns in the clash.
