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

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.

The Uruguayan defender won the 2013/2014 La Liga trophy with los Rojiblancos, while making it to the Champions League final on two occasions (2014, 2016). He won the Europa League trophy in the 2011/2012 season with Atletico Madrid as well. Godin made 91 league appearances for the Yellow Submarine and on 4 August he made probably the best decision of his career as he signed a contract with Atletico Madrid.

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.

Atletico Madrid vs Celta de Vigo H2H

Diego Simeones troops are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that they have already suffered elimination in the Champions League, we predict that the Argentine tactician is going to field the best possible side against Os Celeste. Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Deportivo Alaves and Girona, Atletico Madrid suffered a 2-0 loss to Barcelona in the La Liga derby at the weekend. As a result, los Rojiblancos have slim chances of winning the domestic trophy, but they will surely give 100% to finish the season above their fierce local rivals Real Madrid.

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.

They have at least had a week to prepare for this one unlike Atleti who had to dig deep to snatch a point from their clash with Juventus. That was perhaps a timely reminder that this is still a much changed team from last season and that Atleti remain a work in progress as they develop something of a new style which is more focused on attacking down the flanks with Kieran Trippier and Renan Lodi bombing on from full-back. That came on the back of defeat at Real Sociedad in La Liga, one which just quashed some of the excitement that was building around their prospects this season.

Gimenez is primarily a central defender and is recognized to be a natural and fast defender who is classy on the ball. His qualities came to the fore during his youth team presence at Toledo but his professional debut was in 2012 for Danubio. Jose Gimenez is a fast rising 21-year-old young Uruguayan defender who plays for Spanish club Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid will be in a good position to regain top spot in the league if Sevilla get anything but a win against Real Madrid. To top it all, Barcelona may be on their heels as well if they beat Granada. The dynamic at the top of La Liga this weekend will be pretty interesting. All of this is stipulated on Atletico Madrid beating Celta Vigo at home.

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.
