Atletico Madrid hosts Celta Vigo in round 26 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Saturday, February 26th at Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid)
Atlético Madrid has been too unstable lately. Yes, the team confidently beat Osasuna in the last round (0-3), but that victory was not enough to return to the Champions League zone. The Mattress Makers are currently in 5th place with 42 points. The fourth-ranked Barcelona has the same number of points, but its additional indicators are worse. Six of Atlético’s previous seven LaLiga games ended with Over 2.5 goals scored. Diego Simeone’s men have always looked very confident at their native stadium in all tournaments. However, they often make mistakes at Wanda Metropolitano in the current season. This is how all the home results of the team look like: seven victories, three draws, and two defeats with a goal difference of 21-12.

Celta Vigo hasn’t lost for a long time. At the moment, its unbeaten streak amounts to five matches (two victories and three draws). The Galicians are in ninth place in the standings. Having 32 points in their assets, they feel more than comfortable. The gap from the relegation zone is 12 points. In the current season, Celta Vigo has pretty good away statistics: four victories, five draws, and three losses with a goal difference of 13-10. By the way, eight out of 12 away matches ended with Under 2.5 goals scored. In addition, the Sky Blues have suffered only one defeat since the end of October.
Celta Vigo and Atletico Madrid crossed paths in the first round of the Spanish Championship. Then the Celts were defeated at home with a score of 1-2. Seven of the last eight head-to-head matches between these teams at Wanda Metropolitano ended with at least two goals scored. No one doubts that Atlético Madrid is the favorite of the upcoming game. Despite all the difficulties, the Mattress Makers look strong at home, and they will certainly be close to victory. But as I have repeatedly written earlier, this season Celta players show their best football on foreign pitches. I’m not sure that the Sky Blues will earn points at Wanda Metropolitano. But at the same time, I am sure that they will put up a worthy resistance to the hosts, and the fans will see goals in both nets.
