It’s going to be a tough task for Villarreal in La Liga, as the returning side to the top flight host in-form Atletico Madrid at the Estadio El Madrigal.
Diego Simeone’s team have won five of their last six league matches and also come into this clash off the back of a 4-0 victory over Austria Wien in the Champions League – a result that booked their place in the last-16 of the competition.
This impressive form of late leaves Atletico second in the Spanish top tier and just a point behind leaders Barcelona.
The hosts meanwhile are enjoying life back at the top after being promoted back to La Liga at the end of last season following a two year absence.
Villarreal have won three of their last six league ties, including a narrow triumph over Elche in their last fixture on Monday.
The home team will be without forward Giovani Dos Santos for the game and so Jonathan Pereira is in line to start against Atleti.
For the visitors they have one of the most deadly striking partnerships in European football with Diego Costa and David Villa – with the latter likely to return for this tie after missing the midweek match.
However, Mario Suarez and Arda Turan will miss the clash as they continue to recover from injury.
