Matchday LIVE: Celta vs. Atlético

A rainy Balaidos is the setting for tonight's match

Vietto starts tonight for Atlético

Vietto starts tonight for Atlético

Atlético know the score by now. With Barcelona two points ahead but a game behind, Atleti know that all three points will send them back to the top of La Liga.

It was unclear whether tonight’s game would even go ahead after torrential rain battered Balaidos all week, however it will continue as planned.

Augusto Fernández gets his first league start for Atleti, against his former club.

Starting XIs

Celta: Sergio, Mallo, Cabral, Sergi, Jonny, Radoja, Wass, Pablo, Orellana, Aspas and Bongonda.

Atlético: Oblak; Juanfran, Godín, Giménez, Filipe; Gabi, Augusto, Saúl, Koke; Griezmann, Vietto

  • Koke

    So here goes Simeone again playing 3 defensive midfielders at the same time, plus Koke who isn’t exactly a number 10 either. Yes, it’ll probably make it really hard for Celta to score against us, but my fear is that Griezmann and Vietto will end up isolated for most of the game and our midfield won’t offer much penetration. I hope I’m proven wrong though!

    This’ll be a tough game. Here’s to hoping for a win.

    Koke needs to be substituted

  • Kris

    Surprisingly we’re playing good football. Kind of. Griezmann playing the playmaker worries me though. Who’ll score one goal every game for us then?
    Funny how Augusto keeps getting booed every time he touches the ball. 2

  • Kris

    Is Oliver leaving??? Fuckk!!

  • Abdil Egriøz

    I hope the fuck not!

    We are improving I think. Vietto is way more included in the build up than Torres and Jackson… But someone need to score the goals as well.

  • Hannu

    Score like Torres and Jackson. ?

  • Palantine

    I prefer Vietto by far between our 3 forwards

  • atleti10

    I agree, he may not be scoring too many goals but neither are the others. He’s a much better footballer than the other two.
