Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
There will be fireworks when Celta Vigo and Atletico Madrid face each other at Estadio de Balaidos in the La Liga round 10. Os Celeste aim to put an end to their five-game winless run, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Saturday’s encounter as well. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, while defender Mihailo Ristic is unlikely to be risked.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, are eyeing their fifth consecutive league win. Unlike previous seasons, Diego Simeone’s troops have been scoring goals for fun this term and given their three-game winning run in Vigo, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the title-chasing visitors. The likes of Angel Correa, Jose Gimenez, Memphis Depay, Thomas Lemar, Caglar Soyuncu, and Reinildo Mandava are out of contention with injuries for the away team.
Highlighted Player (Antoine Griezmann):
Anthony Griezmann is a French forward born on 21st March 1991 in Macon, and he is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most exciting footballers at the moment. The pacey striker started showing his potential shortly after coming through Real Sociedad’s youth academy and he went on to score 46 goals in 179 league appearances for La Real. Excellent displays in Spanish la Liga saw him become a target for a number of top clubs, but he eventually choose to sign for Atletico Madrid, and that proved to be a very good decision.
Griezmann continued the rich vein of form at Vicente Calderon, scoring some important goals as los Colchoneros enjoyed domestic and European success, while also becoming a key member of the France national team.
Playing as a winger or second striker, Griezmann possesses impressive technical skills, he is a strong finisher and still finds time to work hard for his side, so no wonder he is widely regarded as one of the leading forwards on the continent. He won the U19 European Championship with France and is tipped to lead Les Bleus to glory on senior level as well.
