Villarreal vs Atlético de Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I believe that his will be a very balanced match, without many goal scoring opportunities, especially during the first 45 minutes.
On the 28 matches played by Villarreal in the league, only 4 of them had more than 1 goal during the first half.
As for Atlético, they also share that trend, with Under 1.5 Goals before half-time in 23 of the 28 rounds they’ve played so far.
That way, I see a lot of value on exploring the Under 1 Goal market during the first 45 minutes of this encounter.
