Villarreal CF vs Atletico Madrid Preview & Analysis

Villarreal will be hosting the current Champions Atletico Madrid, as the La Liga 2021-22 season continues after the winter break.

After a somewhat mediocre start to the season, Villarreal picked up steam towards the end of the first half. The team won 3 consecutive games going into the winter break and has kept the form intact coming into the second half, winning the first fixture of the New Year convincingly against Levante. The team has since suffered a shock 2-1 defeat against Sporting Gijon and crashed out of the Copa del Rey. Villarreal is currently in 8th place with 28 points.

Atletico Madrid on the other hand had a great start to the season, which saw the team losing just once in the first 14 games. Since then, things have started going downhill, and the team lost 4 consecutive matches going into the winter break. The break seems to have provided coach Diego Simone a much-needed opportunity to get his act together, and the team has won both the games it has played after the break. These include a 2-0 win against Rayo Vallecano in La Liga and a 5-0 drubbing of Rayo Majadahonda in Copa del Rey. Atletico is just within the top 4 and has a slender lead of 1 point over 5th placed Barcelona.
