VIL vs ATL Dream11: Just when it seemed Atletico Madrid are running away with the title, came an unexpected and shocking run which has put more pressure on Diego Simeone and his men. To put into context, Atletico have won just once in the last four games and lost a home game against Levante. While Simeone’s ultra-defensive tactics in the UEFA Champions League against Chelsea put the team in dire straits. That’s why the game against the talented Villarreal has come at the wrong time perhaps. Atletico Madrid know Unai Emery’s team is more than capable of beating them. The Yellow Submarine will host the game at Estadio de la Cerámica on late Sunday night (IST). Here is VIL vs ATL Dream 11 Match Prediction.
