Reason for Atalanta vs Villarreal Predictions
Atalanta needs to win and can even be caught for third if they lose and Young Boys defeat Manchester United in the other fixture. Atalanta has been in fine form. Their exciting 3-2 win at Napoli on Saturday night was their third in a row in all competitions and fifth in a row in Serie A, and they face Verona in Serie A in their next fixture on Sunday. Three or more goals per match were recorded in 5 of the last six fixtures where Atalanta have played. Their opponents scored 8 of them in these games, whereas Atalanta managed to get a total of 18. Still, we’ll just have to find out whether the trend might continue in this upcoming game. Robin Gosens (Hamstring Injury) and Matteo Lovato (Muscle Injury) are not available for Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini. Marten de Roon has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Josip Ilicic is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance.
Currently, the Spaniards have a one-point advantage over their hosts, and Villarreal will qualify if they avoid defeat in Bergamo. Villarreal has been a major let-down this season and sits in a disappointing mid-table slot in La Liga. Their 1-0 defeat at Sevilla on Saturday means they have won just three games in La Liga all season and have lost three of their last four games. They will be looking for a Champions League run to raise morale and seem better equipped to Europe than domestic football at the moment. In the course of their six previous matches, Unai Emery’s Villarreal has found the back of the net 11 times – earning them goals scored per game average of 1.83. With a fully injury-free squad to pick from, the Villarreal manager Unai Emery has zero fitness worries at all before this match. Midfielder Moi Gomez has found the right role in the team, he is moving great, and many say that the new Santi Cazorla is a legend of the Yellow submarine. Gerard Moreno plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
Atalanta is the favorite in this match, they play phenomenally at home, and we expect them to win this match.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
