Tip Reasoning

  • There have been three or more goals in Villarreal’s last five games
  • Six of Atletico Madrid’s last eight outings have contained three or more goals
  • Both teams have scored in eight of Atleti’s ten away La Liga fixtures

Villarreal on a role

They may have suffered a shock 2-1 defeat to Sporting Gijon in the Copa del Rey on Thursday, but Villarreal enter this clash having won four La Liga games in a row, including the last three at home.

Unai Emery’s side are scoring goals by the bagful. They have netted in 12 of their last 14 games, racking up 38 strikes in the process, including 5-2 and 5-0 victories over Alaves and Levante in their last two La Liga fixtures.

Both teams have scored in six of their last nine league matches at Estadio de la Cerámica, and given Atleti’s offensive capabilities, you sense that trend could continue.

Atleti back in form

After a patchy run that contained four successive league defeats, you sense Atletico Madrid may have turned the corner after starting the year with a 2-0 win over Rayo Vallecano before beating Rayo Majadahonda 5-0 in the Copa del Rey.

Despite those successive clean sheets, they do have some defensive frailties that need addressing. They have only kept one clean sheet in their last six league games, conceding eight goals in the process.

In those six fixtures, both teams have scored in four, with the same four matches each containing in excess of three goals.

I think this one could be a bit of a goal fest. I predict that both teams will score with three or more goals in the match, while selecting a 2-2 draw as my correct score prediction.
