Preview: Atletico Madrid vs. Celta Vigo

Sports Mole previews the La Liga match between Atletico Madrid and Celta Vigo.

Atletico Madrid could move to the top of the La Liga table with a victory against Celta Vigo this afternoon.

The Spanish champions are unbeaten after their first three matches of the season and earned a 2-1 win away to rivals Real Madrid last weekend.

However, their Champions League campaign got off to poor start in midweek, as they fell to a 3-2 defeat against Olympiacos.

Meanwhile, Celta Vigo come into the match unbeaten as they look to build upon last season's top-half finish.

They had looked set to claim a victory over Real Sociedad last weekend, but let slip a two-goal lead and were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw.

Mario Mandzukic is expected to miss out for Atletico after breaking his nose in their Champions League tie. Cristian Rodriguez and Angel Correa are also ruled out for the hosts.

Injured duo Augusto Fernandez and Borja Oubina will be unavailable for Celta, but Nolito is expected to return to the team after being passed fit.
