Celta Vigo and Atletico Madrid go head-to-head at the Estadio de Balaídos for a potentially low-scoring La Liga affair. Just one of their last four top-flight H2Hs has seen both teams score, with each featuring under 2.5 goals.
The hosts have suffered a dip in form after a promising start to the season, going from three league games without a loss to back-to-back defeats. Just three goals scored after the opening five La Liga fixtures have highlighted their attack as a potential issue. Indeed, Óscar García Junyent’s men have failed to get on the scoresheet in three of their five league outings so far this term, with each of their three goals scoring coming before the hour mark. Improving that record against Atletico Madrid will be an uphill task, as the ‘Célticos ‘ have drawn a blank in four of their last six top-flight H2H meetings (W1, D2, L3). By contrast, both of Celta’s home La Liga matches this season have produced over 2.5 goals.
Meanwhile, the visitors dismantled Granada 6-1 in their opening league game but failed to score in two consecutive La Liga outings since (D2). Indeed, ‘Los Colchoneros’ are established ‘draw specialists,’ considering two-thirds of their previous nine top-flight trips have ended level, last season included (W3). Low scoring has been a theme for Atletico Madrid on the road this calendar year. A clear majority (72.73%) of their away La Liga games in 2020 has featured under 2.5 goals (8/11), with eight of those 11 fixtures also containing under 1.5 first-half goals. Diego Simeone’s men have been hard to penetrate lately, keeping a clean sheet in four of their last six league trips (W3, D3).
