Atletico Madrid vs Celta Vigo Match Preview
Atletico Madrid showed again in midweek how difficult they are to beat at home – and a routine victory is expected in the next engagement on their own pitch against Celta Vigo.
Diego Simeone’s side were trailing 2-0 to Juventus entering the last 20 minutes of their Champions League opener, but their famed team spirit kicked in again and they drew level with set-piece goals from Stefan Savic and Hector Herrera to spark scenes of wild celebration – not least from their demonstrative manager.
It was a great riposte after Atletico had been staring back-to-back defeats in the face after surrendering their three-match winning start to La Liga season with a 2-0 loss at Real Sociedad last Saturday.
Celta Vigo, meanwhile, have won only one game out of four so far, three of which were at home, and they were always going to be up against it when they were reduced to nine men less than half an hour into last weekend’s match against Granada after Jorge and Fran were both shown direct red cards.
Fran Escriba’s side ended up losing 2-0 and need to be careful they do not become embroiled in a relegation battle similar to last season.
The suspensions of the two men sent off last week will make life trickier for Celta here and it is difficult to see past this being another straightforward success for Atletico.
