Following a dismal series of five matches without a win in all competitions throughout January and early February, Atletico Madrid appear to have steadied the ship over the past ten days or so, with all decent league results against Granada (1-0) and Valencia (2-2) backed up by a superb 1-0 Champions League victory over holders and World Club Champions Liverpool at Wanda Metropolitano in midweek.
Saul Niguez struck the only goal of the competition just four minutes later, and Atleti showed their previous tenacity and mettle to find the job through. It remains to be seen whether a one goal advantage will probably be enough before the daunting trip to Anfield for the next leg, but Diego Simeone's guys are securely in the tie -- which is much more than most would have expected based on how they've performed on the whole this year.
In the league, four points in their last two trips from Granada and Valencia was enough to watch Atleti cling onto fourth position, but they'd be usurped this Sunday night in case Villarreal pinch all three points at Wanda.
It is hard to envisage the hosts dropping this encounter though according to Wednesday's functionality, while Los Colchoneros have lost only once at Wanda in the league this year, winning seven and drawing four.
The result marked Villarreal sixth win from their past eight La Liga outings, and brought them to within 2 points of their top .
Javier Calleja's negative have been tremendous since about mid-December, and will travel to the funds this Sunday understanding that a victory will propel them into the Champions League places, depending on how fifth placed Sevilla fare in Getafe.
The people have dropped six of their 12 away matches this period, but've crucially amassed ten points from their final four on the street, such as 1-2 successes against Sevilla and Real Sociedad.
A repeat of these performances here could well be sufficient to grab something, and it's equally tough to oppose Villarreal within this one on manifestation of their existing outcomes.
The sides drew 0-0 in La Ceramica at December's reverse fixture, which had been the third stalemate between the teams in their last five encounters.
Even though Villarreal would enjoy only a triumph here in order to leapfrog Los Colchoneros at the desk, Javier Calleja and his charges would undoubtedly be happy with a draw to keep them in striking distance of the best four.
