2022/23 Spanish La Liga
Celta Vigo v Atletico Madrid
Sunday, 12 February 2023
Kick-off is at 15h15
Celta Vigo will square off with Atletico Madrid in a Spanish La Liga
match at the Estadio de Mestalla on February 12.
The Sky Blues edged out Real Betis 4-3 away on February 4 and they are unbeaten in their last two matches in the league.
Celta are also undefeated in their last three matches at home having recorded two successive draws and one win at the Abanca-Balaídos.
Meanwhile, Atletico were held to a 1-1 draw by Getafe CF at home on February 4 and they extended their unbeaten run to four matches in La Liga.
The Mattress Makers are also undefeated in their last two matches on the road having registered one draw and one win as the visitors.
What Is At Stake
Celta are a middle table team as they find themselves placed 12th on the league standings, but they are four points above the relegation zone.
The Sky Blues will be hoping to secure a victory over Atletico which would see the 2000 UEFA Intertoto Cup champions move further away from the relegation zone.
On the other hand, Atletico are in the race to finish in the top four and they are currently placed fourth on the table - needing a win over Celta in order to cement their spot in top four.

Celta's first-choice goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin will be missing as the Argentine star recently suffered an Achilles tendon rupture.
While Atletico have no injury concerns and Diego Simeone's side could hand Matt Doherty his debut against Celta with the Irish star having recently joined the club from Tottenham Hostpur.
Iago Aspas remains Celta's most influential player having recorded the most goals (nine) and assists (three) in the league than any other Sky Blues player this season.
Carlos Carvalhal's side will have to find a way to contain Antoine Griezmann who is one of the most creative players in La Liga this term having provided six assists and netted six goals for Atletico.

“Yes, it hurts me. We have to look at each other and push each other so (our fans) see the Atlético they have always seen at home," Atletico manager Simeone said following their draw with Getafe.
“When I think of the dropped points, I feel bad. But when I think of all the good things the team did, I feel good. We attacked the whole game, we looked for ways through, our opponent defended well.
"We had chances to get closer to the goal but we couldn’t find the decisive pass.”
Atletico thumped Celta 4-1 in their last meeting in La Liga with the match taking place at the Civitas Metropolitan Stadium in Madrid on 10 September 2022.
The Mattress Makers are enjoying an eight-match unbeaten run against the Sky Blues in the league having registered five wins and three draws.
