Atleti and the Wanda Metropolitano are ready to host Villarreal as we return to LaLiga action. The game is to be played at 9 pm CET on Sunday.
Our team is currently fourth in the standings and arrives at this clash following our 1-0 win over Liverpool in the Champions League. That game extended our unbeaten home run to six matches. We also won our last LaLiga encounter at the Wanda Metropolitano two weeks ago, when we beat Granada 1-0.
On Sunday we’ll face another demanding challenge, as Villarreal have earned 10 of their last 12 points. Javi Calleja’s side, who are sixth with 38 points, beat Levante 2-1 in their last game. They’re also the third top-scoring team in LaLiga with 42 strikes. On the other hand, Atleti currently boast the second best defensive record in the competition – having conceded 17 goals.
It will be an important and very attractive match at a Wanda Metropolitano that will look to replicate the electric atmosphere from Tuesday's Champions League game.
