Atletico Madrid have a reputation for keeping football matches tight and this is clearly in evidence away from home this season considering that Diego Simeone’s side have scored six times and conceded on just five occasions.

Team news | League Table | Odds

Atleti continue to be difficult to beat despite no longer calling on the services of Diego Godin and Antoine Griezmann this season, although a lack of goals means that the Mattress Makers are only sixth in La Liga table and it might be a struggle to qualify for the Champions League this term.

It will be concerning for Simeone that his team have only won once in the previous seven matches, with that solitary success coming against Espanyol which has occurred amidst three draws and three defeats.

Indeed, Atletico have only scored one goal in their previous three games and their first priority will be to stop Villarreal considering the Yellow Submarine are an attack-minded team who have plundered eighteen goals in seven games at El Madrigal.

The home side sit thirteenth in the table although they have the exciting Gerard Moreno banging in the goals this season and will be looking to arrest a winless slump of their own which now stretches to five games and counting.

There have been some brilliant attacking displays from Villarreal and the highlight came when beating Betis by a 5-1 scoreline, while there was also a crazy 4-4 against Granada right at the beginning of the season.

However, we’re reluctant to think it will be anywhere near as open when Atletico come to town, with Thomas Partey, Saul Niguez and Koke looking to stop the home side in their tracks and we’re going to go with the obvious bet.

This bet has copped in every Atleti away game in La Liga this season and it looks a straightforward selection at the prices.
