Villarreal vs. Atletico Madrid Predictions

Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips for Villarreal vs. Atletico Madrid at La Liga

  • Where: El Madrigal, Villarreal, Spain
  • When: Tuesday, April 2, 03:00 AM

The home team is in great shape, and we have to admit that they played well over the past few weeks, except for the first game in Marseille. Atletico struggles to find consistency, but at least they are pushing solid in the UEFA Champions League where they reached the quarterfinals. Still, Diego Simeone’s unit is under pressure in the domestic league because they might lose the fourth spot in the standings and jeopardize their UCL appearances next year.

Villarreal vs. Atletico Madrid Preview

Villarreal

The Yellow Submarine has only one defeat in the previous 11 games, the one in the first leg against Marseille, 4-0. That catastrophe cost them the quarterfinals of the Europa League because a 3-1 victory in the rematch wasn’t enough for them to erase the minus. 

When mentioning Villarreal’s form, five wins in six events are the best proof of its rise. Just one of those triumphs didn’t include the Yellow Submarine netting twice, yet on the other side, they frequently conceded.

Looking further back in time, eleven of Villarreal’s previous 15 meetings have ended with goals on both ends, and the past six saw three or more hits. 

Atletico Madrid

Apart from good results in the UEFA Champions League, where Atletico eliminated Inter, its performances have been disappointing. Three victories in ten recent matches, all at home, are cause for concern. Not so long ago, they seemed safe in the top-four zone, yet now that’s not the case. 

They are behind Bilbao, who is fourth. Their form is on the decline, and they have numerous problems, plus obligations in the Champions League. All this could be highly problematic for Diego Simeone, who needs to find a solution to wake up his team before La Liga finishes. 

The situation is even worse on the road, where they haven’t won for the past five meetings, recording four losses and one tie. In each defeat, Atletico failed to score a goal, which was terrible.

This is a nice game for high efficiency because Villarreal plays interesting and open-minded football these days, while on the other side, Atletico needs to start delivering upfront. Our pick here is over 2.5 scores because of the hosts’ aggressive approach, especially at El Madrigal.

Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
