Villarreal team news

A four-game winning streak has rejuvenated Villarreal’s season after going on a run of picking up one victory across eight La Liga matches. This streak represents their best winning run under Unai Emery, the Yellow Submarine have also netted five goals in each of their past two league outings, which is only the second time in the club’s top-flight history after January 2014 under Marcelino García Toral’s leadership. Among the goals was marksman Gerard Moreno who struck a brace in each of his last three appearances, becoming the first player from the club to do so in La Liga history. The last player to score two or more goals in four consecutive Spanish top-flight games was Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid in March 2018. He’s expected to lead Villarreal’s attack but there’s no room for injured trio Francis Coquelin, Ruben Pena and Paco Alcacer while Arnaut Danjuma is a doubt. Plus there’s several players including Samuel Chukwueze and Serge Aurier who are on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Villarreal predicted XI: Rulli; Foyth, Albiol, Torres, Pedraza; Parejo, Trigueros, Capoue; Gomez, Moreno, Pino.

Atletico Madrid team news

Things could not be anymore different regarding Spanish champions Atletico Madrid who recently endured a four-game losing streak. That run was snapped last time out when they ran out 2-0 winners against Rayo Vallecano which nevertheless leaves them 14 points behind leaders Real Madrid heading into this weekend. That being said, Atleti have lost their last three La Liga away games and could suffer a fourth on the bounce for the first time since December 2011 under Gregorio Manzano. Even more concerning, they’ve failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last 11 road games, conceding 17 goals, which is their worst run without an away clean sheet in the competition since December 2010 under Quique Sanchez Flores (17 games). Simeone — who could record consecutive La Liga away wins against Villarreal something Atlético have never managed in competition history — is still out with a thigh injury while Marcos Llorente remains a doubt. Luis Suarez and Jose Gimenez meanwhile are suspended.

Atletico Madrid predicted XI: Oblak; Vrsaljko, Felipe, Hermoso, Lodi; Lemar, De Paul, Koke, Carrasco; Correa, Felix.
