Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Atletico Madrid and Villarreal face each other at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturday’s program. Atletico Madrid failed to impress in Sunday’s football match against Celta Vigo, but thanks to Kevin Gameiro’s goal the capital club returned to winning ways in the national championship. Los Rojiblancos aim to stay in the race for the title and we predict that they are going to fight tooth and nail against Villarreal on Matchday 10. You should bear in mind that Diego Simeone’s men are eyeing their third home win of the season. The Yellow Submarine, on the other hand, rolled over Las Palmas (4-0) at their Estadio de la Ceramica at the weekend, but beating Atletico Madrid on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, one goal should separate the two teams in the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano clash.
Highlighted Player (Antoine Griezmann):
Antoine Griezmann is a French forward born on 21st March 1991 in Macon, and he is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most exciting footballers at the moment. The pacey striker started showing his potential shortly after coming through Real Sociedad’s youth academy and he went on to score 46 goals in 179 league appearances for La Real. Excellent displays in Spanish la Liga saw him become a target for a number of top clubs, but he eventually choose to sign for Atletico Madrid, and that proved to be a very good decision. Griezmann continued the rich vein of form at Vicente Calderon, scoring some important goals as los Colchoneros enjoyed domestic and European success, while also becoming a key member of the France national team. Playing as a winger or second striker, Griezmann possesses impressive technical skills, he is a strong finisher and still finds time to work hard for his side, so no wonder he is widely regarded as one of the leading forwards on the continent. He won the Under-19 European Championship with France and is tipped to lead Les Bleus to glory on senior level as well.
