Our Villarreal vs Atletico Madrid prediction suggests the Yellow Submarine can end a five game winless streak at home to Atleti. Four of those fixtures did end level though and games between the two have been quite even in recent years with one win apiece overall in the last five.

Villarreal Preview: Full back issues for Marcelino

Villarreal are very short on options at full back here with Kiko Femenia and Alberto Moreno both suspended. Eric Bailly and Ramon Terrats are injury doubts.

Predicted Lineup: Jorgensen (GK), Cuenca, Mandi, Albiol, Mosquera, Baena, Comesaña, Parejo, Bertrand Traore, Sorloth, Gerard Moreno
