Villarreal v Atletico Madrid Preview, Primera La Liga, Sunday, 10th November 2013

Villarreal had started their new season extremely well and put together a run of six matches unbeaten until their defeat away against Real Betis on the 29th September, but since that defeat Marcelino’s side have only managed three victories in their following five matches of which they lost two and sunday night’s encounter against Atletico Madrid at the Camp El Madrigal is going to be another huge test of their character.

Atletico Madrid are having an excellent start to their new campaign and went an impressive twelve matches unbeaten until their first defeat of the season away against Espanyol, however unlike their hosts Diego Simeone’s side have recovered well from that loss and have gone on to win their following five matches in succession and are right up there at the top of the Primera La Liga table just one 1pt behind current leaders Barcelona.

Villarreal v Atletico Madrid Team News

Villarreal Team News:

The hosts have no reported injuries or suspension to their squad so manager Marcelino will name his strongest lineup for this one in a 4-2-3-1 formation that should see Uche leading the attack up front with support from midfield coming from Giovani dos Santos, Cani and Perez.

Striker Giovani dos Santos is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 6.

Atletico Madrid Team News:

The visitors also have no reported injuries or suspensions for this match, so manager Diego Simeone will also play his strongest lineup for this one which will see David Villa leading the attack up front in a 4-2-3-1 formation with support in behind coming from Diego Costa, Adrian and Koke.

Striker Diego Costa is the clubs current top goalscorer so far this season with an impressive tally of 13 which puts him joint top of the Primera La Liga goalscorer table alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.

Striker Charles is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 4.

Villarreal v Atletico Madrid Match Betting Odds Market.

Villarreal will know that this is a must win game if they are to stand any chance of closing the gap on the sides above them and they do have the squad available to win this game, however they are up against a team that has only lost once all season and as such the online bookmakers don’t seem to fancy the hosts to win this game as their current price of 14/5 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers) clearly shows.

The Draw has not happened in any of the previous 5 games these two sides have played but with very little between them so far this season this game certainly has a chance of ending up all square on sunday night and at a best price of 5/2 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) this could well be worth having a small saver bet on.

Atletico Madrid are having one of their best starts to a new season and with the likes of David Villa and Diego Costa leading the attack up front this side is going to score plenty of goals, so no real surprise to see the online bookmakers making the visitors the clear favourites to win this game at a best price of 23/20 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) which does look the value play here considering their recent form.

Villarreal v Atletico Madrid Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A huge game that will no doubt go a long way to which of these two sides will stay in contention for the Primera La Liga Title and for me it has to be the visitors who have the better chance of winning this game as their squad is absoloutely on fire at the moment and with Diego Costa scoring goals for fun at the moment I can easily see Atletico Madrid getting at least a couple in this game on sunday night.

Villarreal do have the all important home advantage though and having done ok so far this season they will no doubt be confident of becoming just the second side to inflict a defeat on Atletico Madrid and with Giovani dos Santos in good goal scoring form they do have a chance of winning this game all be it a small one.

The goal stats suggest at least a few goals to be scored during this one and with the attacking players involved that are having an excellent time of it in front of goal so far this season betting markets like Both Teams to Score YES, Over 2.5 Goals and Anytime Goalscorers could also provide some decent value in what looks like being a very entertaining match indeed.
