Atleti faces Celta in a new LaLiga match at the Wanda Metropolitano. The matchday 32 clash is to be played on Saturday at 6.30 p.m. CET.
Escribá’s side sit 16th in the standings – two points and two spots above the relegation zone – after wins over Villarreal and Real Sociedad and a draw against Huesca. Iago Aspas played a big role in his team’s positive streak, scoring five goals in those last three games. The striker, who had played just 25 minutes over the previous 96 days due to fitness issues, will miss the match at the Wanda Metropolitano through suspension.
Our team has faced Celta 101 times, registering 61 wins, 17 draws and 23 defeats. Only five of those losses took place at our stadium, in which we haven’t lost against the Vigo side in over a decade. The first time both teams met at the Wanda Metropolitano, Simeone’s men earned a 3-0 win thanks to goals from Griezmann, Vitolo and Correa.
The Frenchman has scored in the last three home games against Celta. In the current edition of LaLiga, our number 7 has been involved in 21 of our team’s goals, registering 13 goals and eight assists.
