Celta Vigo play host to Atletico Madrid in La Liga soccer action from the Estadio de Balaidos on Tuesday afternoon.
Celta Vigo enter this game in 16th place on 35 points, tied with Alaves and Eibar with a record of 7 wins, 14 draws and 13 losses following a 1-1 draw with Real Betis last time out. In the tie with Betis, Vigo would take the lead in the 22nd minute off of the boot of Nolito from a set piece. Celta’s lead would hold going into the half and through a good portion of the second half until Betis tied the game in the 79th minute. Neither side would find the go-ahead goal over the last ten plus minutes, leaving the points to be shared. Iago Aspas leads Celta Vigo in scoring with 13 goals on the year while Denis Suarez leads Vigo in assists with 5 assists this season. Ruben Blanco leads Celta Vigo in goal, conceding 1.22 goals per 90 minutes with 10 clean sheets in 32 league appearances this season.
Atletico Madrid on the other end of the pitch, enter this game in 3rd place on 62 points with a record of 16 wins, 14 draws and 4 losses after a 3-0 win over Mallorca last time out. In the victory over Mallorca, Alvaro Morata gave Atletico the lead after just 29 minutes from the penalty spot, and doubled Atletico’s lead late in first half stoppage time. Mallorca would try to get back into the match in the second half with ten attempts at goal, but none of them hit the target as Atletico would push for a 3rd in the 79th minute off of Koke’s boot. Mallorca would end up being held off of the scoreboard completely as Atletico picked up the win and the points at full time. Morata leads Atletico Madrid in scoring with 11 goals while Angel Correa has a team-high 6 assists and Koke has 5 assists. Diego Costa and Kieran Trippier each have 4 assists for Atletico Madrid this season. Jan Oblak is Atletico’s #1 goalkeeper, conceding 0.65 goals per 90 minutes with 15 clean sheets in 34 league appearances this season.
I’ll give Vigo credit for having a solid run of form, picking up points in five of their last six games including the 2-2 draw with Barcelona. However, Vigo hasn’t done much else in that run, and haven’t faced a team that’s as stiff defensively as Atletico Madrid, who also have a 2-2 draw with Barca as well. Atletico’s just been in a strong run of form since the restart and while the line feels like a sucker bet, I have to take it and back Atletico ML as my main bet for this match. Braver bettors will also want to take a look at Atletico to win to nil for sizeable plus odds as a side bet.
