Preview: Atletico Madrid vs. Celta Vigo

Sports Mole looks ahead to this weekend's encounter between Atletico Madrid and Celta Vigo in La Liga.

Atletico Madrid can continue their La Liga dominance with a victory over Celta Vigo this weekend.

Diego Simeone's side are yet to be beaten in the league, which has placed them second in the table, level on points with leaders Barcelona.

The club were further boosted when they clinched a 1-0 victory over Real Madrid, which was followed by a triumph away to Porto in the Champions League.

Atletico's position is a complete contrast to this weekend's visitors Celta Vigo, who sit 15th after taking just six points from seven matches. The club have also not recorded a win since August 25.

The home side are likely to start Diego Costa up front this weekend due to the forward's prolific start to the campaign, while Celta could opt for Nolito in attack.
