Atleti gear up for a demanding LaLiga fixture as we travel to Villarreal on Sunday. Kick-off is scheduled at 9pm CET.
Simeone’s men are the league leaders, having picked up 55 points in 23 matches – one less than the rest of the teams in the competition. The reverse fixture against Villarreal ended 0-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano, the same result as last season’s match at the Estadio de la Cerámica. In our last two games on the road, we when 2-1 at Granada and drew 1-1 at Levante.
On the other hand, Unai Emery’s side earned a draw at Athletic Club in their last league match. They’re sixth in the LaLiga standings with 37 points.
Two of the competition’s top scorers will face off on Sunday, as Luis Suárez (16 goals) and Gerard Moreno (14) meet in what promises to be a cracking game.
