Celta vs Atletico Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
An interesting match awaits us this Sunday when Celta Vigo will host Atletico Madrid at the Balaídos. This is a match between a team looking to enter the top six group and a team looking to continue their winning ways.
Celta Vigo are placed tenth at the table and have a positive goal difference of +5. They have won three, drawn two, and lost three games so far in La Liga. They have had a four-game unbeaten streak. Last week they continue in a good rhythm when they managed to beat Las Palmas with the score 5-2. Mor, Aspas, and Hernandez scored five goals for Celta Vigo. Vitolo and Remy scored one goal each late in the game and with it gave the fans some satisfaction and set the final score. Las Palmas had lots of chances and shots but they have failed to capitalize on those attempts. If Celta wins this game they have a chance to enter the top six group of the table.
Atletico Madrid have been playing great this season. They are especially good on the defensive side of the field. They, alongside Barcelona and Valencia, are the only unbeaten teams in La Liga this season.
