Unbeaten in their last five league games, Atletico Madrid will be looking to keep their good form going when they host Celta Vigo at the Vicente Calderon Stadium in the 22nd round of the Spanish La Liga.
Atletico To Get Back To Top 4
The hosts have been fighting to get to the title race for so long this season. The team have stumbled in their first half of the season but they have come back in recent weeks. Atlético Madrid have collected a total of 11 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Leganes at home where they won 2-0.
Atlético Madrid are currently sitting in the 5th place in the league table. They have 39 points from 11 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses. The team scored 36 goals and conceded 16 since the start of the season.
Diego Godin is sidelined for the home side, with Jose Maria Gimenez still not fully fit after his own recent injury. Lucas Hernandez should feature at the heart of the defence alongside Stefan Savic, with Juanfran given the nod at right-back.
Celta Vigo Lack Consistency
The visitors’ form have been up and down since the start of the season. The team have won three of their last five league games. Celta Vigo have collected a total of 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Leganes away from home where they won 2-0.
Celta Vigo are currently sitting in the 10th place in the league table. They have 30 points from 9 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses. They have scored 31 goals and conceded 33 since the start of the season.
Eduardo Berizzo has no fresh selection concerns, aside from Facundo Roncaglia being one booking away from a suspension. Marcelo Diaz will anchor the midfield, with Daniel Wass deployed out on the right-hand side once again.
Head To Head
Atlético de Madrid have won 3 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 4-0 to the hosts in the reverse fixture.
