Atlético Madrid vs Celtic preview
It is a big European occasion at the Cívitas Metropolitano for Atlético Madrid and Celtic today. In a tight Group E, this clash could be vital in deciding who progresses in this season’s Champions League.
Atléti are (in)famously difficult to beat at home. While the visitors may be able to rack up goals in the Scottish Premiership, they will encounter more severe resistance from Diego Simeone’s well-drilled side. Celtic will though, be encouraged by the gutsy performance they put in at home in the reverse fixture last month. They came from behind twice to earn a 2-2 draw during a feisty encounter that saw Atlético Madrid’s Rodrigo de Paul sent off.
Both teams really need a win this time around. The Hoops only have one point after three games. A defeat would make it almost impossible for them to qualify for the next round and even put a Europa League place in jeopardy. The key will be taking whatever chances they are presented with.
For Atlético Madrid, three points would keep them applying pressure to current group leaders Feyenoord. Can Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann keep proving to be the difference makers from them?
Here's how they line up:
Atlético Madrid: Oblak, Molina, Giminez, Witsel, Hermoso, Riquelme, Koke, Barrios, Griezmann, Correa, Morata
Celtic: Hart, A Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor, McGregor, Bernardo, O'Riley, Palma, Maeda, Kyogo
It’s going to be a raucous night in the Spanish capital, with two passionate sets of fans and players going fault pelt. Read on as we explain how you can get an Atlético Madrid vs Celtic live stream wherever you are, and watch the Champions League online.
