Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Celta Vigo finished comfortably in mid-table last season, well clear of the relegation zone but 9 points adrift of the European places. Having reached the semi-final of the 2016/17 Europa League, losing out narrowly to Manchester United, Celta Vigo are eager to return to European competition. One team which knows all about succeeding in Europe is Atletico Madrid. They have reached two Champions League finals and won the Europa League last season under Diego Simeone. Atletico Madrid will be challenging for the title this season.
Celta Vigo will be looking forward to hosting one of the top teams ahead of the international break. Last season they proved very difficult to beat on home soil but one of only three teams they lost against at Abanca-Balaídos was Atletico Madrid and the hosts will want revenge. Atletico Madrid picked up a good 1-0 win in this fixture last season and will be more than happy to come away with the same result. Simeone likes his team to keep clean sheets and this is the basis of everything Atletico Madrid do throughout the season.
Celta Vigo have made an unbeaten start to the La Liga season and they will want it to remain that way following this game. Although slightly disappointed to draw at home with Espanyol on their first match of the season, Celta Vigo soon forgot about that result as they won 2-1 at Levante. A win here would make it a great start to the campaign.
Atletico Madrid were held to a 1-1 draw at Valencia in their first game of the 2018/19 La Liga season.
