Villarreal vs Atletico Madrid by Rahul

Atletico Madrid have been struggling in recent weeks while their rivals have progressed ahead of them and now they have won just 1 of their last 4 games in La Liga. Atletico Madrid will need all their big guns to step up in this encounter including their 2 strikers Gameiro & Greizmann plus midfielder Carrasco to bump up their goal scoring efforts as each of them have 6 goals each as the top goalscorer of this team, and none of them have scored over the last 3 games. Atletico Madrid have been solid defensively and are the 2nd best defense in the league with just 11 goals conceded this season. Their record had been ruined due to 5 goals conceded to Sociedad and Real Madrid; and manager Simeone will want the team to step up to the game in this encounter to turn around their record.


Villareal have been equally good on defense with just 10 goals conceded in their 14 games so far, but they have only managed to score 19 goals. Their offense is not up to the mark like it used to be in the past and have won just 1 game in their past 5 in La Liga. They have struggled to find the back of the net in any of their last 3 games which will be on the eyes of the Atletico Madrid team who will aim to head to el Madrigal to steal a result. Villareal forward Sansone has been their major spark this season with 5 goals, while Bakumbu, Pato, Borre and Soldado have been unable to ignite any spark on the offense which has been their source of struggles.


This game will be an extremely tight encounter, and its hard to see either team leaking lots of goals in this encounter; and I expect Madrid to sneak this game by a narrow 1-0 scoreline.
