Atletico Madrid vs Celta Vigo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Atletico Madrid fell to a first league defeat in 10 games after a 1-0 loss against Barcelona at the Camp Nou. Lionel Messi scored from a free-kick after 26 minutes and it turned out to be the only goal of the game. Atletico went on to secure a decisive 3-0 lead over Lokomotiv Moscow in the first leg of the Europa League last 16. Saul Niguez broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute, but Diego Costa’s goal just after the break provided breathing space for Simeone’s team. Koke scored late on to secure a big win for Atletico. Celta de Vigo used home advantage once again as the team managed a 2-1 win over Las Palmas. Erik Exposito shocked the home crowd with a 53rd minute goal, but Celta de Vigo were level just nine minutes later through Johnny Castro. The search for a winner finally ended with Pablo Hernandez scoring in the final minute of the game.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Atletico simply do not seem to concede goals at the Wanda Metropolitano. The club has kept six consecutive clean sheets at this ground. Surprisingly, Sevilla and Girona are the two teams to find a way past Atletico’s defence at home in 2018. Celta de Vigo have been unable to score in the last two away matches. A strong pick in the game would be to choose a clean sheet for Atletico Madrid. There have been more than 1.5 goals in three out of the last four home matches for Atletico, who also seem to do extremely well when it comes to home games against Celta de Vigo. In the last five home games against this opponent, Atletico have scored two goals. I see value in choosing Atletico to score over 1.5 goals.

Atletico Madrid Preview

Atletico have been in excellent form in recent weeks, but the defeat against Barcelona effectively robs Diego Simeone’s team of the opportunity to gatecrash the La Liga title race. Atletico are no strangers to winning the title even with Barcelona and Real Madrid at the peak of their powers, and the club’s last title success came in the 2013-14 campaign. Now, however, progress in the Europa League will be the primary focus for Atletico.

Atletico Madrid Team News

Diego Godin (gastrointestinal discomfort) and Jan Oblak (back) are doubtful for the game, while Stefan Savic (thigh) is set to miss out.

Celta Vigo Preview

Celta de Vigo are relying heavily on the home form in order to keep them in the top half of the table. Even though only six out of their 11 league wins this season have been at the Balaidos, most of these wins have come in recent weeks. Incredibly, Celta de Vigo are only three points behind a Europa League qualification place. Even if the club finish in this current position, it would rank as a significant improvement over their 13th place finish last season.

Celta Vigo Team News

Daniel Wass (back) is doubtful for the game, while Diego Alende (ligament) and Andreu Fontas (hamstring) are missing for Juan Carlos Unzue.
