When Atletico Madrid resumes their La Liga season versus Celta Vigo on Saturday evening, they will be attempting to secure 6 consecutive victories across all competitions. While Celta are now in 18th place in the La Liga standings with a mere 6 points after 9 matches, Diego Simeone‘s team are in the 4th spot, 5 points below Real Madrid with one match on hand.
The 12th straight season that Celta Vigo has competed in La Liga. Since they were in the ninth spot in the previous campaign, it appeared as though they could secure European football after 25 to 26 rounds. However, because of a disastrous conclusion to the period, they came in at 13th place and were only 3 points from the drop zone. The Sky Blues’ dismal form from previous season has carried over into this one, and after 9 matches, they’re currently in 18th place with only 6 points, 3 above last-place Almeria. The Vigo team has lost all 4 of their recent league encounters with Atletico, and they haven’t triumphed over them in the top tier since September 2018. Manu Sanchez could replace injured player Mihailo Ristic in the starting lineup.
Prior to the international break, Atletico Madrid prevailed 2-1 over Real Sociedad thanks to Antoine Griezmann’s late penalty at Wanda Metropolitano. Simeone’s team has enjoyed a fantastic start to the season, having won their previous 4 league contests, notably the derby game in Madrid over Real Madrid, and 4 points through both of their matches in the Champions League group stage. It wouldn’t be surprising if Atletico continue to win games considering that they have a significant European match against Celtic away from home the following week. Diego Simeone’s midfield is strengthened by the injury returns of Rodrigo de Paul and Pablo Barrios. But Reinildo, Memphis Depay, Thomas Lemar and Vitolo will all be unavailable in this game due to injury.
