Atletico Madrid hosts Wanda Metropolitano Villarreal in the 5th round of the championship. Atletico Madrid – Villareal will be played on Saturday (with a limited number of spectators) from 17:00.
Currently he is on the 12th place in the ranking after only 2 games played in the championship.
In the first match of the LaLiga, Diego Simeone’s boys crushed Granada at home with the score of 6-1, the debutant Luis Suarez managing a double and a goal pass.
The second match of the championship, the one against Huesca ended with a white draw, score 0-0.
Atletico Madrid have not lost on their own field since January 2019 when they were defeated 0-1 in front of Barcelona.
Unay Emery’s team is on the 4th place after as many matches played in the championship. Villarreal seems to have recovered after the defeat suffered away with 4-0 in front of Barcelona.
The last match in LaLiga ended with a victory at home for the “yellow submarine” with a score of 3-1 against Alaves. Probable and Absent Teams.

Football Prediction of the Day Atletico Madrid vs Villarreal
Of course, the ranking after only a few weeks played in the championship does not tell us much about the end of the season but Simeone is aware that he cannot lose points against Barcelona which already has two victories from two matches played or against Real which has 7 points out of 9 possible .
Villareal plays against a team they have not been able to beat since the 2017-2018 LaLiga season.
Atletico Madrid is a real fortress on its own field, they have not lost the last 15 matches on Wanda Metropolitano. Having the advantage of his own field and knowing his opponent, managing to defeat him in the last direct meetings, I think that Diego Simeone’s students will manage to “sink” the “Yellow Submarine” until the end of the 90 minutes.
