On Sunday, Gerard Moreno’s Villarreal CF and Alvaro Morata’s Atletico Madrid will play a matchup between two of La Liga’s leading goal scorers. Both Morata and Moreno have 7 goals so far this campaign. Morata, who scored the sole goal for Atletico Madrid against UD Las Palmas, is the team’s leader.
Last season, Villarreal excelled in La Liga. Finished seventh in the league standings, the Yellow Submarines were predicted to challenge for UEFA Champions League spots this season. Things aren’t going as planned, though. Currently, having 12 points after 12 games, Pacheta’s team is ranked 13th among the La Liga standings. Villarreal is 13 points below Atletico Madrid in 4th place and just 5 above the drop zone. It is quite difficult to envisage the Yellow Submarine making it into the top La Liga rankings and the UEFA Champions League position. Last weekend, Villarreal lost their La Liga home match to Athletic Bilbao, 3-2. It preceded a 3-2 league triumph against Granada away from home and a 5-0 triumph against Chiclana on the road during the Spanish Copa del Rey.
One of the greatest and most successful clubs in Spain right now is Atletico Madrid. The current campaign, Atletico is vying for the La Liga championship and is probably going to make an effort in the UEFA Champions League. With twenty-five points after eleven games, Diego Simeone’s team now sits 4th in the La Liga standings. The previous champions of Spain are 4 points below Real Madrid, their local rivals, in second position and 6 points below leaders Girona. With 27 points after 12 games, defending champion Barcelona is in third place. With 8 points after 4 games, Atletico currently leads Group E of the UEFA Champions League. They lead third-place Feyenoord by two points and second-place Lazio by one point. Midweek, Atleti destroyed Celtic 6-0 inside their stadium within the UEFA Champions League.
