Competition: La Liga
Market: Atletico Madrid win
Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on their 100% start to the new La Liga campaign, Atletico Madrid will welcome Villarreal to the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday night.
Starting with the hosts, managing to lift the La Liga title last season and pounce on the mistakes around them, Atletico Madrid have opened the new campaign with a real flurry. Looking to defend their domestic crown this time around, Colchoneros are one of just two sides, along with Sevilla who can boast a 100% start as we inch closer to the international break. Last seen picking up what was a deserved 1-0 win against Elche on home soil, Head Coach Diego Simeone has seen his side draw a line under their sluggish end to their pre-season preparations. Looking to make it three in three this weekend, fans around the capital will be boosted by Atletico’s continued success at the Wanda Metropolitano. Continuing on from last season, Sunday’s hosts have won each of their last seven La Liga home fixtures on the spin.
As for the visitors, while Villarreal might have stunned Manchester United as they lifted the Europa League title back in May, The Yellows have largely failed to build off of that result. Suffering that penalties defeat against Champions League winners Chelsea in the Super Cup on August 11th, Unai Emery’s side have also opened the 2021/22 campaign with a stuttering start. Once again missing a chance as they had to settle for a 0-0 stalemate against Espanyol on the road, the former Arsenal boss has seen his side play out back-to-back goalless draws so far. Enduring a nightmare pre-season run over the summer after failing to win any of their seven friendly matchups, Villarreal should face another tough test when they travel to the defending champions on Sunday night.
