The Mattressers were lucky to have saved a point away at Valencia on the opening day and they only managed to edge past the likes of Rayo Vallecano in the second round clash at Wanda Metropolitano.

Diego Simeone’s troops looked uninspired as only a “lucky” Antoine Griezmann strike from a deflection inside Rayo’s penalty area made the difference between the Mattressers and the league newcomers last Saturday.

They’ll certainly need to show much more if they want to grab the spoils against the insp0iring Celta Vigo side in one of the most exciting clashes of the Matchday No 3 at Abanca-Balaidos.

Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid: Head-to-head

  • Atletico Madrid completely dominated this match-up most recent years.
  • The Mattressers won all of last five H2H games with the Sky Blues netting three or more goals in three of last four matches in the process.
  • Overall, Atleti lead the H2H tie by ten wins coming into the 39th meeting with Celta Vigo.

Celta de Vigo vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction

The new manager Antonio Mohamed has reasons for optimism following Celta’s fine attacking performance away at Levante in the penultimate game of the second round on Monday evening.

The Argentine manager has a strong attacking line with the likes of Iago Aspas, Pione Sisto and Maxi Gomez Sisto and Gomez stole the show at Estadio Cuidad de Valencia clinching a goal and an assist each within the opening 33 minutes of the game and they will be a massive threat to Atleti’s goal on Saturday.

To be fair, it’s hard to recognize the value in the away win pick at the 1.70 odds in spite of the mentioned head to head record. Celta only lost 3 of 19 home games last season and they are well worth backing not to lose here at 2.20 odds. Braver punters can shoot for the home win at the sky-high 5.50 odds.
