Betting tips & odds comparison 23.02.2020 Atlético de Madrid - Villarreal CF

Betting Tip for matchday 25 of the 2019/2020 Primera División between Atlético de Madrid and Villarreal CF. The game will be played at Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid, Spain) on 23.02.2020 at 21:00.

ATLETICO MADRID

Coming off a resolute and dogged 1-0 shutdown of reigning European champions Liverpool in the midweek Champions League first leg round of 16 fixture Atletico Madrid will be looking to build on that sterling performance and maintain their top four status.

This season has largely been a disappointment in the La Liga for Los Rojibloncos. They are pretty much out of the title race after falling off the pace to runaway leaders, traditional powerhouses Real Madrid and Barcelona. They are undergoing a rather painful transition. They have lost the spine of the team that won them the league and got them to two European finals under Diego Simeone. Ageing stalwarts Gabi, Diego Godin and Juanfran have made way for younger and talented players like Joao Felix and Thomas Lemar. Blending them in seamlessly has proven more difficult than initially perceived as evidenced by their struggles particularly this season.

To compound their issues, they have been beset by a raft of injuries this season. They will be boosted by the return of striker Alvaro Morata who is available for selection. He came off the bench in their 2-2 draw at the weekend and played against Liverpool in the midweek game too. Diego Simeone is likely to restore him to the starting lineup alongside Angel Correa for this fixture.

VILLARREAL

Villarreal on their part are having a relatively good season thus far by their standards. They are in 6th place just two points off the 4th position currently occupied by their opponents Atletico Madrid. A win for them here will literally see them swapping places with Atletico on the table and will be a major boost in their quest to make a return to Europe’s premiere club competition.

They are on a four-game unbeaten run in La Liga, winning three and drawing one. Those three wins however have been against teams in the bottom half of the table.

Ruben Pena is expected to continue to fill in at left-back for Villarreal, despite Alberto Moreno getting closer to a return.
