Match Preview

  • Runaway table toppers Atlético Madrid are now just one victory away from matching their longest La Liga (LL) winning streak of the last decade. They previously strung together nine straight wins in their last title-winning campaign (2013/14), in which they also accrued 50 points in their first 19 matches.
  • Atlético have attained five HT/FT doubles in their current run of eight LL wins, with those composed performances being accompanied by an average of 2.38 goals per game in that period. That said, they have conceded before HT in each of their last three wins, including shipping the opening goal within the first 15 minutes twice.
  • Failing to score in three of their last five LL games, Celta Vigo have potentially slipped out of Europa League contention after a frustrating start to 2021. Their last three LL trips to Atlético have also seen them return home without a goal or competition point.
  • At the commencement of this LL round, Celta were one of eight clubs to have not won any of their last four away trips. Yet, their win rate of just 16.67% as a travelling outsider (W1, D2, L3) was only marginally below the league average of 18.11% at the same point.
  • Players to watch: Atlético’s Luis Suárez bagged a sixth-minute opener in the previous H2H fixture, but three of his four goalscoring league appearances vs Celta have seen him score once in the 61st-75th minute period. Needed more than ever, Celta’s returning warrior Iago Aspas has scored Goal 2 of the day in each of his last five goalscoring LL appearances (W3, D1, L1).
  • Hot stat: The 2012/13 LL season marks the last time a top-flight club led by at least ten points after their first 19 games of the season had elapsed (Barcelona, 1st – 100 points).
