Atletico Madrid will be looking for a winning streak in La Liga when they travel to Estadio de la Ceramica on Sunday night to take on in-form Villarreal.
Villarreal beat Levante 5-0 at home last matchday. They have also won six of their last seven games and have scored a total of 25 goals in those six wins. Theyve also won three consecutive home wins and are 12-2 on aggregate in the process. Unai Emerys side are eighth and only need four more points to move into the top four - which would be a remarkable achievement after all the struggles theyve been through.
Atletico will enter the game after a 5-0 victory over Rayo Majadahonda in the Copa Del Rey on Thursday. Atletico Madrid beat Vallecano 2-0 at home ni the last league game. Simeones side have lost four of their last five league games and have only three wins in total on the road since September. The defending champions are currently fourth - 14 points behind the leader Real Madrid.
Back-to-back victories are sure to boost Atleticos confidence in tough conditions, but Villarreal have been terrific in La Liga recently and have home-court advantage in this game. Villarreal are expected top be unbeaten in this close game.
