Matchday 10

Celta Vigo v Atletico Madrid 

Vigo, Spain
Saturday, 21 October 2023 
Kick-off is at 20h00
Celta Vigo will square off with an in-form Atletico Madrid side in a Spanish La Liga match at the Abanca-Balaídos on 21 October.
Current Form
The Sky Blues drew 2-2 with Getafe CF at home on 8 October and they are now winless in their last five matches in the Spanish top-flight.
Celta are also winless in their last five home matches in the league having recorded three successive defeats and two consecutive draws at the Abanca-Balaídos.
Meanwhile, Atletico secured a 2-1 win over Real Sociedad at home on 8 October as they extended their unbeaten run to four matches in La Liga.
The Mattress Makers have won two of their last three away league matches while the other game ended in a defeat to Valencia CF as the visitors.
Team News
Mihailo Risti is the only player on Celta's injury list at the moment, but the Sky Blues have no suspension concerns. 
Atletico stars Ángel Correa,  Jose Maria Giménez, Memphis Depay, Thomas Lemar, Çaglar Söyüncü and Reinildo are currently injured, but the club has no suspension worries. 
"After seeing the effort that the boys have been making in this marathon of games that we are playing and with teammates who cannot help, I feel proud," Atletico manager Diego Simeone said after their win over Sociedad. 
"Having a team of footballers who compete like this is something that the fans can feel proud of. We had a first half very good, we were able to increase the score with Axel [Witsel]'s which was very clear and then it was difficult for us to go on the counter. 
"They are brave, they tried to play a lot of second ball instead of coming from behind as they usually do. I think we controlled [Takefusa] Kubo very well, also [Mikel] Oyarzabal, their midfielder... From the defensive phase we interpreted where we could hurt them, which was behind their full-backs."
Atletico beat Celta 1-0 in their last meeting in La Liga with the match taking place at the Abanca-Balaídos on 12 February 2023.
The Mattress Makers are enjoying a nine-match unbeaten run against the Sky Blues in the league having registered six wins and three draws.
