Villarreal vs Atletico Madrid – La Liga Betting Tips

The resurgent Europa League Champions Villarreal welcomes struggling Atletico Madrid to their home ground for their La Liga clash.

Atletico Madrid ended 2021 poorly but started 2022 very well with a 2-0 win over Rayo Vallecano. 

Villarreal was on fire in December and continued with their winning streak in 2022 with a 5-0 thumping win over Levante.

Villarreal has scored 5 goals in each of their last two games, but they face a much stronger side. Would they replicate the same feat or fall to Atletico Madrid? Here are our tips for this game:

Villarreal Form and Team News

Villarreal has been in form. In fact, they only lost 1 game in December in all competitions, which was the 1-0 loss to red hot Sevilla. After that loss, they have been on 6 games winning streak. 

During their winning run in all competitions, they have scored an impressive 23 goals and conceded just 9 goals.

For the team news, Villarreal only has 2 players out of this clash with Atletico Madrid, and they’re Coquelin and Pena.

Atletico Madrid Form and Team News

Atletico Madrid had a troubled December they’d prefer to put past them. Out of the 4 La Liga matches played in December 2021, they lost all 4. Two of those losses were against the top 2 La Liga sides in the table, but the other two were matches they should have won.

However, there was a glimmer of hope even in their poor form. They managed to win against Porto in a must-win game for both sides to stay in the UCL this season.

2022 started better for Atletico Madrid as they started it with a 2-0 win over Rayo Vallecano.

For the team news, Atletico Madrid has some players out of this clash due to injury, and they’re Savic and Llorente.

Our Tipsters Angle

Villarreal has been in hot form and booming with confidence going into this match. They will play this match in front of their home fans and hope to impress them.

Atletico Madrid has been struggling lately but seems to have corrected their bad form over the winter break. They’ll take their 2022 first major test and try to win Villarreal, which we think is an arduous task. 

Below are our tips for this fixture:

Tip 1:  Under 2.5 Goals

Even though Villarreal is in fine scoring form, Atletico Madrid has a robust defense that has managed to reduce the number of goals conceded against top oppositions in La Liga this season. 

They limited Sevilla to just 1 goal and limited Real Madrid to just 1 goal too. Also, this match would be different as they might control the bulk of the match, detecting play and being cautious not to open up the defense for Villarreal.

We think watching their game approach for similar matches would likely be a low-scoring encounter. 

Under 2.5 Goals available at Casumo Bookie at 1.68 odds.

Tip 2:  Atletico Madrid Win or Draw 

Atletico Madrid’s poor December run was mostly due to the number of injuries that affected them. They have most of their players back and would be looking to bounce back to the top of the table quickly and have already started with a win against Rayo Vallecano.

Checking the H2H between the teams, it can be seen that Atletico Madrid has been getting better of Villarreal in recent seasons. Atletico Madrid is unbeaten against Villarreal in their last 5 meetings, winning 2 and drawing 3.

Atletico Madrid to win or draw is placed at 1.45 odds at the Casumo Sportsbook.


This important La Liga fixture is one not to be missed. An Atletico Madrid wins in this fixture might propel them to 3rd place on the table, while a Villarreal win can send them to down to the 7th position.

This match can go either way, but we are sure that we will be treated with an exciting match.
