The defending champions have made a 100% start to the season, with two wins from two games, and have lost just one of their last 32 La Liga games at the Wanda Metropolitano. 

During that 32-match run, Diego Simeone’s men have conceded just 17 goals and kept another clean sheet in last weekend’s win over Elche. Villarreal did claim a 0-0 draw at Atletico last term, but they have failed to beat the champions in their last six meetings.

Atletico Madrid edged Elche 1-0 at home last week with Angel Correa scoring the lone goal in the 39th minute. The Argentinian increased his total to three goal this season after scoring both goals in their 2-1 win at Celta Vigo in their season opener.

Europa League champions Villareal, meanwhile, currently sit in 15th place with two points after beginning the new season with goalless draws against Granada and Espanyol.

Verdict

We are backing Atletico to win this match and not concede a goal.
