Celta Vigo have recovered well from a slow start to the season and are rated a value bet to edge out Atletico Madrid at Balaidos on Sunday.

The visitors continued to struggle in the Champions League when held to a goalless draw by Qarabag in Azerbaijan on Wednesday and that could affect their confidence here.

With the hosts scoring goals for fun of late, 17/5 for a home win is worth including in our Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid betting predictions.

A Look At Celta Vigo’s Betting Odds

Celta Vigo made it seven points in three games, with 12 goals scored during that period, when romping to a 5-2 victory at Las Palmas, despite having goalkeeper Ruben Blanco sent off after 52 minutes.

Juan Carlos Unzue will have been especially pleased to see former Liverpool striker Iago Aspas hit form with a hat-trick in that match while their opponents could only manage a couple of very late consolation goals.

Last season, Aspas proved a player to follow whenever hitting the target, netting in three straight matches on four separate occasions.

That stat makes 15/4 for the 30-year-old Spain international to score at anytime stand out from the Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid odds.

A Look At Atletico Madrid’s Betting Odds

Atletico Madrid are in real danger of failing to qualify from their Champions League group after picking up just two points from the first three rounds of European fixtures.

Diego Simeone’s side wasted three chances when one-on-one with the keeper in Baku and a lack of killer instinct up front has plagued them for much of the season in LaLiga too.

However, Atletico did produce some decent approach play and will be hoping Antoine Griezmann can enhance a good record against this weekend’s opponents.

The France star has struck six times in as many meetings with the Light Blues and we’re having a saver on him to score again here at 6/5 in our Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid betting tips.
