For Atlético Madrid, the last game against Porto was a slow burner, and they had to sweat hard to turn a boring draw into a victory. At one time, this champion league opener was going towards a draw. However, Atlético turned the tide in the overtime and secured another goal that tipped the scale in favor of Diego Simeone‘s team.
Before that, the Madrid club managed a draw playing against Real Sociedad. The result allowed them to add seven points and move to seventh place in the tally. Besides, this season in LaLiga, Atlético Madrid appears to be in good form. Out of four matches, they have played, they secured a win in two games while losing one and ending another in a draw.
However, their home form is unsatisfactory – they have lost the one game they have played at home. They have scored five goals in total, and their average currently sits at 1.25 goals per match.
Celta, on the other hand, were able to assert their status as a host and defeated Cadiz 3-0 in their last game. They were at one time playing even; however, in extra time, they extended the difference by 3-0 and won the game. Likewise, Celta registered an easy win against Girona FC, where they defeated the rival 1-0.
Owing to the two wins, Cleta Vigo managed to claim seven points too and remain one place under their rivals in the upcoming match due to goal difference. Celta Vigo began their campaign in LaLiga with a draw and a loss. However, they soon picked up the form and managed back-to-back wins in their last two games.
Their goal-scoring average is around 1.75 per match, which can be considered good. However, they have been somewhat extravagant in giving away goals, and their goal conceding average remains at around 1.50 goals per match. Per their current form, Vigo doesn’t seem to lag behind Atlético as they have also bagged two wins, lost one game, and ended one with a draw.
The overall stats of both the right rivals indicates that Atlético Madrid is the favorite side. The Colchoneros are in good form and have managed to carry to the international arena, too, conceding only one defeat in their last eight commitments.
Based on the above prediction and comparing the form of both teams, we predict a 2-1 win for Atlético Madrid.
Atlético Madrid vs Celta Vigo Team News
- Atlético Madrid
Atlético Madrid has to deal with three injuries this season – Stefan Savic is unlikely to make a comeback due to a muscle injury. Likewise, Sergio Reguilón is in recovery after surgery for pubalgia. Lastly, José María Giménez may not join the team, given he suffers from severe back pain.
The good news for Atlético Madrid is that Matheus Cunha, who missed the games against Real Sociedad and Porto and all the preparatory sessions after his hamstring strain, is fit and will be available for the game.
The rest depends upon the coach, who will be looking for a winning combination given the upcoming matches. Hence, it won’t be a surprise to see Jan Oblak, Nahuel Molina, Axel Witsel, Saúl Ñíguez and Morata in the team.
Possible Lineup for Atlético Madrid – Oblak, Molina, Felipe, Witsel, Hermoso, Saul; DePaul, Kondogbia, Lemar; Strap and Morata.
- Celta Vigo
Opposite Atlético Madrid is Celta Vigo, which must be confident after chaining two consecutive victories and not conceding a single goal in both games. It’s almost certain that Celta will surely storm the Metropolitan with Norwegian Jörgen Strand Larsen and Iago Aspas in their attack line. The latter proved too useful against Cádiz and will surely join the action in the upcoming game.
The sky blues understand that the duel against Atlético is demanding and, therefore, will pitch their best against them. However, there’s little possibility that attacking midfielder Óscar Rodríguez will be making an appearance following a contracted biceps. Likewise, young Gabri Veiga is also not expected to be a part of the squad.
Possible Lineup for Celta Vigo – Marchesín, Hugo Mallo, Unai Núñez, Aidoo, Javi Galán; Wall, Beltrán, Cervi, Aspas, Larsen and Carles Pérez
