Unai Emery, the Villarreal manager, was satisfied with the performance against Atletico, but not with the result. 
"We can’t avoid the result. From there, you look at how you want to get a result. We put in an extremely complete performance, and we just lacked accuracy in both areas," Emery said. 
“If you lose like that, you need to look beyond the result. We did a lot of things very well. 
"We had control, you could see our ideas and we continued moving forward. We need to be more competitive in a few details throughout the 90 minutes."
The last meeting between Valencia and Villarreal in a league match was on 18 October 2020. 
Villarreal recorded a narrow 2-1 win over Valencia in a match that was played at the Estadio de la Cerámica.
