Atletico Madrid were really unsuccessful in their previous fixtures against Villarreal. Their last victory over El Submarino Amarillo happened three years ago. After that, the teams had six games between them and Villarreal won four of them. Furthermore, Los Colchoneros will have to go to Germany for their UEFA Champions League group stage fixture against Borussia Dortmund four days after their upcoming game against Villarreal. It is likely that the head coach of the team Diego Simeone will be glad to get just one point out of the fixture against the team of Javier Calleja. In their last three matches Atletico Madrid beat Real Betis with a 1-0 score, Club Brugge with a 3-1 score in their UEFA Champions League group stage fixture and drew against Real Madrid with a 0-0 score.
It is hard to predict the winner in the lead-up to the upcoming fixture between Villarreal and Atletico Madrid. The interesting thing though is how many goals the teams have scored and have conceded recently. Interestingly, El Submarino Amarillo have been scoring only a few goals a match and Los Colchoneros have been conceding only a few goals a match on the other hand lately. The team of Diego Simeone conceded only four goals in their eight starting fixtures of the 2018/2019 Primera Division season. They have been able to keep their goal safe for four league games in a row now. It`s worth noting that there was only one team scoring goals in six of last eight games Atletico Madrid had. Also, in eight of last ten matches between Villarreal and Atletico Madrid one of the teams left the field with no goals scored. It is likely that one of the teams will leave the field with no goals scored in the upcoming game too. Considering the recent results of the teams the hosting side is more likely to score zero goals on Saturday, It could also happen that a 0-0 draw would be the final result of the upcoming match. Nonetheless, the best prediction for Saturday is either Villarreal or Atletico Madrid will leave the field with no goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - no.
