THE PREDICTION

Atletico are finishing the season in impressive style as they come off yet another comfortable win, this time against struggling Mallorca. They make the trip to face Celta having had an extra day to prepare for this game which could be crucial. The hosts have just lost once in their last six games as they have edged away from danger and they would take a point ahead of this game. Given Atletico’s excellent form, that may see Celta take a more defensive approach for this game as their matches of late have contained plenty of goals. They are missing key defender Araujo however and that should unsettle them sufficiently for Atletico to take advantage so expect goals at both ends.
