Atleti have been running on fine form lately and will look to continue when they tackle the Yellow Submarines

Villarreal lock horns with  Atletico Madrid at Estadio de la Ceramica in the Primera Division on Sunday evening.

The Yellow Submarine’s form have been a complete mixed bag for the past two months, and prior to their 0-2 win at Las Palmas last Sunday, they were on a two-match losing streak.

With the hosts’ poor form on their turf, recently, having lost three of their last four competitive games, Bet365 tips them at (4.20) to secure victory.

On the contrary, Los Rojiblancos have picked up victory in 10 of their last 11 fixtures across all competitions. On the road, Atletico were on a three-game winning run in all competitions before their 1-0 loss to at Barcelona in their most recent league trip. They are offered at odds of (2.10) to continue their impressive form.

Seeing this duel end in a no winner, no vanquish state, which paid out in both sides’ last outing, is available at a whooping price of (3.10).

To avoid defeat, the home team is priced at (1.75) by the same betting outfit. This only paid out in two of their head-to-head battles.

Each of Villarreal's last six ties in all competitions have produced fewer than three goals, while Simeone’s men have been solid at the back, shipping in just 12 goals from 28 league outings. The bookmakers quote (1.57) to see this showdown follow that path.

Antoine Griezmann has been in a splendid shape recently with 10 goals notched in his last nine appearances in all competitons. The French forward is therefore offered at a mouth-watering (5.50) to find the net first and anytime at (2.62).

Four of last six battles between these sides has seen the first 45 minutes end on a stalemate. Brave punters can back this encounter to go that way at evens of (2.00).
