Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 17 October 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Balaidos (Vigo).
The 2-0 loss on the road against Osasuna right after the 0-3 loss in the same fixture against Barcelona has affected the morale of the Celta Vigo dugout in the campaign prior to the Saturday clash.
Out of their five appearances in the league this term, their only win came at home against Valencia with a 2-1 scoreline and has been winless for the next three clashes in the schedule.
Atletico Madrid has been winless in the recent two fixtures and will visit on the back of a goalless draw at home against Villarreal in the previous league encounter.

Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
The 2019/20 season La Liga was the first time since the 2014/15 season in which Atletico Madrid had failed to win in both fixtures against Celta Vigo in La Liga.
The host had a reputation of troubling big names at their home in the campaign last season, but things have turned into a downward slope as the Celts have only one win in their recent five fixtures.
Celta Vigo enjoys the ground advantage but has seen no use of the advantage in recent clashes. This opens doors for Simeone’s aggressive attacks to affect the home team’s shaky defense.
Atletico Madrid is ruthless despite where they are playing, and the arrival of Suarez has made a substantial increase in the attacks for Los Indians.
But the recent two clashes with the Uruguayan in the starting eleven have seen no fruitful results. So, expect only a couple of goals, if any. The correct score will probably be 0-2 for Atletico Madrid.
Based on that scoreline, the tip for no BTTS will probably be an ideal choice. The tip for Atletico Madrid to win either half at 1.44 odds will probably be the best bet, and the away side to win will also yield decent returns at 1.75 odds in the encounter.
