Atletico Madrid are well past their struggles this season and have made a superb charge to look a banker for a top-four finish now. It has been only two dropped points in their last six games.

They will be heading off to face Celta Vigo who have done well recently, scrapping out points to keep themselves clear of the relegation zone.

Celta Vigo Preview – Can Celta Vigo stop the in-form Atletico?

Celta Vigo are W2 D3 L1 in their last six league games so they are doing alright at the moment.

On the weekend they played out a 1-1 home draw with Real Betis. That left them in 15th in the table.

But they are six points clear of the drop zone and at this stage of the season will be expected to be fine.

The home form of Celta Vigo this season in La Liga is W5 D7 L5 and they have gone unbeaten in their last three at home (W1 D2).

One of those draws was a huge 2-2 effort against Barcelona at the end of last month.

Celta Vigo have averaged 1.12 goals per home game this season, but have conceded at under a goal per home fixture.

So this doesn’t look likely to be a high-scoring affair and only 29% of Celta Vigo’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals.

Our betting prediction:
Atletico 1-0 Correct Score

They have however conceded in each of their last three now, so some wobbles have just started to happen at the back.

But it has, by and large, been their defensive strengths that they have been playing to.

They showed plenty of that earlier this season when they played out a 0-0 draw against Atletico Madrid at the Metropolitano.

Celta Vigo’s record against the current top four this season is W1 D4 L2, so they are not a pushover.


Atletico Madrid Preview – Can Atletico pick up three away points?

Atletico Madrid eased to a 3-0 win over Mallorca on the weekend to leave them with a W5 L1 record in their last six.

The draw in that sequence was in a 2-2 thriller against Barcelona at the end of June.

The away form of Atletico Madrid this season is W5 D9 L3 and they are currently on a six match undefeated streak on the road.

So they are back to their efficient best and in total home and away combined are unbeaten in their last dozen league games.

Altec Madrid have averaged 1.2 goals per away game in this campaign, but have conceded at an average of 0.9 per game.

With just 25% of their road games going over 2.5 goals, it’s another decent indicator for Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid betting that this is going to be a low-scoring fixture.
