Unai Emery expects a great show against Atlético de Madrid

Villarreal CF head coach Unai Emery underlined this afternoon that this Sunday’s match against Atlético de Madrid at the Estadio de la Cerámica (9pm CET) will be an exciting challenge: “We’re going into the game hoping to be consistent in LaLiga. It would be taking a step forward. It’s a massive challenge because we’re playing against the LaLiga champions,” he said.

For Emery, the path to follow is clear: “We’ve got points back on our opposition and now Atlético are four ahead of us, an important distant. We need to continue fighting in the right direction, but there’s a lot of the league season left, and we’re going to try and be full of confident. We are going to see what we’re capable of doing against such a dangerous team as Atlético.”

The Basque manager also had a message for the fans: “It’s a match that motivates us. We can’t wait to play it and it’s also a challenge for the fans. I want to feel that we’re strong alongside our fans.”
