This historic rivalry goes back a long way, with both clubs having numerous successes in the league and European competitions over the years. In this blog post, we’ll take a look back at the history of this rivalry and why it is one of the most eagerly awaited fixtures in La Liga.
Villarreal CF and Atletico Madrid have long had a rivalry between them, but it is only in the last few years that they have met in La Liga. Both clubs have a long and illustrious history in Spanish football, with Villarreal making its first appearance in the top division of Spanish football in 1998. Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, was founded in 1903 and has been competing in the top division since 1929.
Villarreal CF was formed in 1923 when former Real Madrid and Barcelona player Juan Soler was invited by local business owners to form the club. He accepted the offer, and a few years later Villarreal was playing in the Second Division. It took the club until 1998 to reach the first division, and they managed to stay there ever since, even reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League in 2006.
Atletico Madrid, however, has been much more successful in their domestic leagues. They have won the La Liga title ten times and also have eight Copa Del Rey titles to their name. They have also won the Europa League three times, as well as being runners-up in the Champions League twice.
