Villarreal vs Atletico Madrid by DrWooll
Villarreal had an excellent start to the season, but with their Europa League and Spanish Cup games coming thick and ast, their league form has suffered. They are now just 1 win in 5 La Liga games with 2 losses. They come off an expected 2-1 win against Steaua Bucharest on thursday evening, which they made difficult for themselves but Trigueros scored a late 88th minute winner. Midfielders Castillejo, Cheryshev and N'Diaye are doubtful so I change up in midfield wont do them any favours.
We all know what Madrid are about, and they just haven't had the results to challenge for the title this year. They did lose to Bayern Munich 1-0 away last tuesday, but they still finished 1st in the group which they will be delighted with. They have nearly had a whole week to prepare for this game so I expect a fit and strong side competing. Madrid have class players, notabaly Griezmann and Carrasco, look for both to score at anytime. I well drilled Madrid team who I think sometimes play better away from home with manager Simione's style, will be to much for a faultering Villarreal side. 0-1 or 0-2 away win
