[Spanish La Liga] Atletico Madrid VS Celta Vigo 11.3 [Copy Link]

Atletico Madrid: The Madrid players have to fall back on their third goalkeeper ( Recent Form: W W W L W )
Atletico Madrid managed to get closer to leading FC Barcelona in the last few weeks thanks to its excellent form, but last week the Madrilenians in the Camp Nou received the mercy blow after a striking free kick by none other than Lionel Messi: 1-0. The difference between the two teams is now a hefty eight points, a gap that Atletico Madrid can not normally make eleven rounds of play before the end. Trainer Diego Simeone: 'We know it has to be improved, even though I am extremely proud of my players.' The fans fully agree, from young to old. Atletico Madrid, however, is keen to end the season with a prize and has therefore set its sights on Europa League winnings. Last Thursday, the redwarts in the first leg did not have a child in Lokomotiv Moscow, which was easily eliminated with a 3-0 lead by Saul Niguez, Diego Costa and Koke. The return of arriving Thursday on Russian soil is therefore no more than a formality. The Madrilenians do not have to save energy this weekend against Celta de Vigo, even though Simeone would not have toured anyway. The coach works with a very narrow selection, and is therefore already in trouble right now. The young Argentinian Axel Werner started the season as the third goalkeeper in the Wanda Metropolitano, but after the injury of Jan Oblak and the hiring of Miguel Angel Moya now suddenly become the first choice. Against Lokomotiv Moscow Werner hardly had to take action, but next Sunday he faces the dreaded attack pair Maxi Gomez and Iago Aspas. In any case, the young goalkeeper can count on a top defense anyway, who already managed to keep the home games in a row for six home matches.

Celta de Vigo: The Galicians want to keep their European dream alive ( Recent Form: D L W L W )
Celta de Vigo has to win Sunday afternoon to keep her hope for European football alive. The Galicians are in ninth place and therefore have to climb at least two places in the rankings. The outlook is not exactly favorable, however, as trainer Juan Carlos Unzue's team lost its last three goals. In addition, the blues shirts did not win any time this season from a team from the Spanish top six. In the first round, Celta de Vigo lost 0-1 to Atletico Madrid in his own Balaidos, mainly due to several fantastic saves from Oblak, who will not be there on Sunday-afternoon. Celta de Vigo has something to put right in the Wanda Metropolitano. The hope of the Galicians is of course mainly based on the royal couple Maxi Gomez and Iago Aspas, together accounting for 29 of the 45 league goals of Celta de Vigo. Incidentally, Iago Aspas had to train separately this week, although he seems to be fit in time for Atletico Madrid-out. The main problem, however, remains the rearguard, which in the last sixteen official matches only managed to keep twice the zero. Celta de Vigo, especially in the back, simply lacks quality, because both Sergi Gomez, Gustavo Cabral and Facundo Roncaglia are not good enough for the level the blue shirts strive for. They will also be able to wet their chests again with Diego Costa and Antoine Griezmann as direct opponents this weekend.

After all, the injury of Oblak may give Celta de Vigo hope for a positive result, but it is of course not the case that his replacement Werner can not do anything about it. I therefore still think that Atletico Madrid can win easily, especially because Celta de Vigo often has a difficult time outdoors and is doing very poorly for the entire season. Given the rock-solid defense of the home team, I am prepared to take some risk and go for the bets 2-0 and 3-0. In three of the last six official home games of Atletico Madrid it became 2-0 or 3-0.
