Our Prediction:

Atletico Madrid will win

Atletico Madrid – Celta Vigo Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 12:30

Estadio Wanda Metropolitano will host Saturdays football game between Atletico Madrid and Celta Vigo, the two teams who were beaten by Real Sociedad and Granada respectively at the weekend. Los Rojiblancos aim to regain top position in the La Liga standings and seeing that Diego Costa has overcome his injury, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Diego Simeones troops.

The hitch to that point is Atleti's desperate lack of goals at the start of this season. Atleti play on Saturday, ahead of both Barcelona and Real Madrid who play on Sunday, so this is their opportunity to pile the pressure on the top guns in the La Liga title race. Until they start to demolish teams like Celta Vigo, it may be difficult to consider them title contenders once again.

Celta have players who can hurt them but overall its hard to look past Atleti at the Wanda and Diego Simeones side should get back on track with 3 points here against a Celta side which is below full strength due to injuries and suspensions. Atleti do look a bit more vulnerable defensively this season, not just because of the defenders that departed the club but because they do seem to be keen to embrace a slightly more attacking style.

Atletico Madrid vs Celta Vigo PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 21/09/2019

From 1997 until 2003 Celta de Vigo managed to become a strong team in the Primera Division. Celta de Vigo is a Spanish football club from Vigo in the Galicia region. The club was founded in 1923 after a fusion between Real Club Fortuna de Vigo and Real Vigo Sporting. Highlight was season 2003/2004 where the club managed to reach the knock out stage of the Champions League but in the same season the team got downgraded to the Segunda Division.

Los Rojiblancos aim to regain top position in the La Liga standings and seeing that Diego Costa has overcome his injury, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Diego Simeones troops. Estadio Wanda Metropolitano will host Saturdays football game between Atletico Madrid and Celta Vigo, the two teams who were beaten by Real Sociedad and Granada respectively at the weekend.

Ten-man Celta Vigo suffered a shocking 2-0 loss to Granada in Galicia at the weekend and considering that the visitors will be without suspended duo Jorge Saenz and Fran Beltran, we believe that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Saturdays clash. Yet another man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Joao Felix, who joined the capital club for a fee of 126 million in the summer transfer window.

Since moving into the ground in August 2018, Diego Simeones men have lost just once there in La Liga and let in only 12 goals in 21 games so they will be confident of a victory and a clean sheet in this one against an under strength Celta side. Atletico Madrid will be pleased to head back to the Wanda Metropolitano after last weeks disappointing 2-0 loss at Real Sociedad.

Celta Vigo will return home happy that they did not concede more than 2 goals. 1:0 looks almost certain when Atletico plays. I looked at their recent performances and their styles of play, as well as other factors like tradition while I was crafting my selection. I actually see them scoring twice in this game and of course keeping their sheet clean.
