LALIGA- ATM vs VIL: Match Prediction, Analysis & Kickoff Time

In La Liga, Atletico Madrid's title defense is going well, and they will be looking for their third straight victory when they play Villarreal. Both teams have had contrasting performances leading up to this match. Atletico Madrid has won two straight games and is joint first, while Villarreal is in 15th position with two points.

Angel Correa has been crucial for Atletico Madrid in recent games, scoring four goals in the last three games, and the team's biggest issue will be defense. In their last five games, they have only kept one clean sheet, and in eight of Atletico's last ten games, both teams have scored. They, on the other hand, come into this game with a five-game winning streak in the league and a seven-game unbeaten run.

Atleti will relish hosting Villarreal, having won seven consecutive La Liga games at home and scoring two or more goals in five of them. They've only lost once in 31 La Liga home games, and they've won three of their six meetings with Villarreal. Villarreal had a strong start to the season, having won the UEFA Europa League and forcing Chelsea into a penalty shoot-out in the UEFA Super Cup. They've struggled to make an impact in La Liga thus far, with only two draws to their name. In their last 11 games, Villarreal has yet to win an outright contest. They've won once on post-match penalties and lost once on the same basis.

They come into this game after a 0-0 draw with Espanyol in their previous match, and have now gone two games without scoring. Furthermore, they haven't won in eight games away from home, and they haven't won in three games in La Liga, but they have preserved four clean sheets in the last five games.

SUMMARY:

Atletico Madrid are having a fantastic season, especially at home. They haven't lost to Villarreal in their last six meetings, and they are in strong form heading into this encounter. Villarreal have played well defensively, but Atletico Madrid possesses a key to unlocking their opponents in Angel Correa. Atletico Madrid is the strong favourite to win this match, given their recent home form. The game will go down today at 9PM UK and Nigerian time.
