Atletico Madrid face their opponents, equal on points, with both keen to make progress

Atleti have dropped five points in their last two fixtures, drawing 1-1 at Real Sociedad and losing 0-1 to Valencia.

Also, Atleti seem unable to get over the line on a consistent basis, with one draws in one game. With seven points, they currently sit seventh in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 2 wins, 1 losses and 1 draws having won two meetings, drawn one game, and lost one game.

Playing at home, Atleti have lost one game.

Atletico Madrid will have secured 10 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

A solid defensive team

Atleti have conceded three goals so far, so their defence can be considered to be strong. The number of goals that a team scores can sometimes give a misleading impression of performance. Atleti have found the net five times, but their performance at times this season has been average. This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Alvaro Morata (3), Antoine Griezmann (2), and Ivo Grbic.

Going into Saturday’s game, Diego Simeone without three of his players, due to illness or injury.

Celta Vigo face his opponents with equal points, both teams will doubtless be keen to make progress

Celta will hope to increase their wins in a row, having secured a 3-0 victory over Cádiz in their last match.

Also, Celta’s League position speaks for itself, as The Sky Blues continue their rich vein of winning form. Their last win, was the 2nd in a row. Now they have 2 matches won, 1 games lost and 1 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in eighth place, with a total of seven points having won two matches, drawn one game, and lost one game.

Playing away from home, Celta have won one game.

A victory for Celta Vigo would put them on 10 points.

Good Attacking Performance

Celta will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (7). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Iago Aspas (5), Oscar (1), and Goncalo Paciencia (1). Teams that leak goals on a consistent basis, don’t tend to win anything, such is the situation with Celta so far, having conceded 6 goals in their last fixtures so far.

Celta’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Eduardo Coudet, ahead of this Saturday’s fixture against their opponents.
