The hosts have not won any of their last four home matches against Atletico in the league, their worst home run against the Rojiblancos in the competition. However, after beating them in the reverse fixture at Wanda Metropolitano they could become the third team in the history of La Liga to win all four matches against Atletico and Real Madrid in the same season of the competition, after Athletic Club in 1929/30 and Real Sociedad in 1993/94.
Nicolas Jackson has been in sensational form with 10 goal contributions in his last seven games for Villarreal in the league and would once again look to make the difference on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Atletico are vying for the second spot and they can end up as runners-up if they win and Real Madrid slip at home against Athletic Club. They head into this fixture after registering a 2-1 victory over Real Sociedad last weekend.
