Atletico Madrid is welcoming Celta Vigo to Wanda Metropolitano in round 22 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Atletico Madrid is on an 8-game winning streak in LaLiga, and they have been on fire this season. during this 8-game streak, Atletico has scored impressive 19 goals, which is an average of over 2 scored goals per game, while conceding only 6 goals. Not only Atletico is one of the best offensive teams in the league with 40 scored goals, but they are also the best defense team with only 10 conceded goals, and it’s not even a competition. With 50 points, Atletico is at the top of the table, and they have 7 points over Real Madrid, and 2 games less played. Atletico Madrid was playing against Cadiz on the road in their last LaLiga game, and they have had 52% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Atletico Madrid has scored 4 goals from 4 shots on goal, and they have deservedly won this game 2-4. Atletico will also be playing in the Champions League in a couple of weeks, but they still have 4 LaLiga games before that. With 14 scored goals so far, Suarez is Atletico’s leading goalscorer, while Felix and Llorente added 6 goals each. Correa has added 5 assists. Hermoso, Dembele, and Felix are in quarantine, while Carrasco is still questionable for this game. I gotta say, I’m loving Atletico Madrid this season, and I really think they will win the title in LaLiga this year.
Celta is the complete opposite of Atletico Madrid, and they haven’t won any of their last 6 games. Celta has had some great results earlier this season, and that is the only reason why they are so far outside the relegation zone, in 11th place wihtn25 points. Celta’s offense is not producing as it used to, and they have scored only 24 goals so far, while their defense could be better with 31 conceded goals. Celta has scored only 2 goals in their last 4 games, and they have 2 losses and 2 draws during this stretch. Aspas is Celta’s captain and the best player with 9 scored goals and 6 assists. Alvarez and Junca are the only two injured players for Celta at this time. In their last LaLiga game against Granada on the road, Celta has had 65% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 79% of the correct passes. This wasn’t a particularly good game for either team, and it ended in a 0-0 draw. For the first time in a few seasons, Celta is not in danger of relegation throughout the entire season, and even though they are in crisis right now, I see Celta staying where they are, and staying in LaLiga for another season.
Celta hasn’t won in their last 6 games, while Atletico is on a 4-game winning streak, and they haven’t lost in their last 26 home games, which is remarkable. Atletico is in much better form here, and I know Celta needs a win, but they will not get it here.
