Atlético Madrid are looking to gain some ground on Celtic in Group E of the Champions League as they welcome Celtic to the Spanish capital this week.
Atlético Madrid currently sit 2nd in Group E with one win and two draws from three games so far this campaign.
The Spanish side kicked off their campaign with a 1-1 draw with Lazio before beating Feyenoord 3-2 followed by a 2-2 draw with Celtic.
The draw with Celtic was a disappointing one given it's a game they would have felt as though they needed to win in order to seal top spot in the group, but two points dropped in Glasgow means they're going to have to pick up a fairly big result elsewhere.
They're coming into this game in decent form having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five games, the most recent of which was a 2-1 defeat at Las Palmas at the weekend.
The loss in Gran Canaria was Atléti's first defeat in nine games so they've been having a good campaign on the whole but they must ensure this loss is nothing more than a mere blip in their march towards what they hope will be a strong challenge for the league title.
Their form at home has been excellent with Diego Simeone's men unbeaten at the Estadio Metropolitano this season having won their last six on the bounce so there's little reason to believe they won't get back to winning ways here.
Celtic currently sit bottom of Champions League Group E with one draw and two losses from three games so far this season.
The Bhoys' campaign began with successive losses against Feyenoord, 2-0, and Lazio, 1-2, before claiming a point in a 2-2 draw against Atlético Madrid last time out.
The performance at Celtic Park last time out was by far their best of the campaign thus far so they'll be hoping to build on that in the coming games to try and salvage what they can from this campaign.
They're coming into this game in good form overall, unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions having won three of them, the most recent of which was a 3-0 win away at Ross County.
Away from home Brendan Rodgers' side have been very impressive as they enter this game unbeaten in their last five on the road having won four of them.
Despite that, however, they're going to a European fortress here to face a side with more individual quality than they possess so the Glaswegian side will probably have to settle for another defeat here.
For our Atlético Madrid vs. Celtic prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the home side.
