Atletico Madrid vs Celta Vigo
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Monday, 8 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano.
Los Colchoneros are easily the best team in the Spanish top flight this season, and that too by a whole mile. They are at the top of the table, above the two titans of La Liga, and have a lead of ten points. And impressively they have a game in hand as well.
By the looks of things, it’s a foregone conclusion that Diego Simeone’s men are about to deliver a rare title for their fans.
But it’s important that they do not take things for granted. Despite having a ten-point lead, the rivals are Barca and Real Madrid. These two could certainly pull miracles off. The Colchoneros will have to do their absolute best till the very end of the season.
This Monday, they are at home, and are pitted against one of the worst teams in the competition at present – the Sky Blues, who are on a long winless run.
Their form on the road has been worrisome all through this season, and only three other squads have conceded more goals than them in the competition.
On top of that, Simeone’s men also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years.
Likely, expect an Atletico win this Monday.
Atletico Madrid vs Celta Vigo: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 0-2 win for the 2013-14 champions.

- They have kept clean sheets in nine of the last thirteen encounters.

Atletico Madrid vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Simeone’s men recorded a 2-4 win on the road the last match-day, against Cadiz. In the meantime, Eduardo Coudet’s men were held to a goalless draw the past game week on the road by Granada.
Going on, the Colchoneros are on a four-match winning run, and had also won nine of their preceding eleven fixtures. They have also lost just once this whole season in the league, and it had come against Real Madrid.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a six-game winless run, and four of these were losses. They had also conceded a total of 14 goals in the process and were winless in 21 of their past 24 road trips.
Finally, the 2013-14 champions also have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years.
Taking into account all these factors, expect the in-form Atleti to record another compelling win this Monday.
