Two teams eager to stay in winning ways will lock horns at the Wanda Metropolitano when the hosts Atlético Madrid face Unai Emery’s Villarreal. Both teams have started their campaigns with 3-0 victories. So, fans can expect to see a fiery La Liga contest between these two sides.

Atlético Madrid

Álvaro Morata marked his La Liga return with a remarkable brace as Atlético Madrid cruised to a 3-0 victory at the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.  Antoine Griezmann came off the bench to score the third goal for the Rojiblancos. The match ended in 3-0, but Diego Simeone’s men could have won by an even greater margin had they utilized the chances they generated.

It was a commanding performance from the Madrid outfit that saw them control all elements of the game. Atlético Madrid restricted Getafe to their own half for prolonged periods with their high-pressing. Diego Simeone would have been thrilled to see the way his team dominated the game before welcoming the high-spirited Yellow Submarines at home this Sunday.

The Atlético Madrid boss would also be happy to have a clean bill of health before playing such a tricky opposition. Summer signing Axel Witsel is all but assured of a starting XI berth after his outstanding performance in defence against Getafe.

Villarreal

A Champions League semifinal run took the toll on Villarreal’s thin squad last season as they fell out of the Europa qualification spots. But, the Unai Emery renaissance is still ongoing at the Castellón outfit. The Yellow Submarines started the season with a fascinating 3-0 victory on the road against Real Valladolid, implying they will mount a solid challenge for the European spots this season.

After a goalless first half, Villarreal academy graduate Nicolas Jackson broke the deadlock before another rising star Alexa Baena sealed the points with a brace. Villarreal followed up that win with a 4-2 Europa Conference League playoff win against Croatian side Hajduk Split on Thursday night.

Unai Emery, however, is not as lucky as his Atlético Madrid counterpart in terms of squad fitness. Arnaut Danjuma and Alberto Moreno will not be a part of the travelling contingent as they are recuperating from long-term injuries.

Our Prediction

Villarreal and Atlético Madrid have both flexed out their attacking might in their opening fixtures. However, our top football betting tips experts believe Atlético Madrid enter the fray with another advantage besides the home support. The Yellow Submarines had to play an intense Conference League playoff on Thursday night and had little time to recover. The hosts might take advantage of a fatigued Villarreal side and claim all three points. We say, Atlético Madrid 1-0 Villarreal.

Our Tip

Atlético Madrid to win @ 1.93.
