LaLiga is back at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday after our cracking Champions League win over Juventus. Atleti face Villarreal at 4.15 p.m. on LaLiga Matchday 25.
Our team, which currently sits second in the league standings with 47 points, hosts Javi Calleja's in-form side. We will look to earn three important points in order to decrease our seven-point deficit with leaders Barcelona. In our last LaLiga match, which was played at the Estadio de Vallecas, we won 1-0 against Rayo Vallecano thanks to a goal from Antoine Griezmann.
On the other hand, Villarreal arrive at the Wanda Metropolitano in 18th position, having registered 23 points. Javi Calleja's team earned a big 3-0 win over Sevilla in their last league game, leaving them just one point off 17th-placed Celta. In their last away match, they drew against Valladolid. Villarreal are also in the Europa League, and after finishing top of their group, qualified for the Round of 16 on Thursday thanks to a 2-1 aggregate win over Sporting CP.
