Atletico Madrid – Celta Vigo – Atletico and Celta are during the week experienced the same fate in the Cup, more precisely, were eliminated in the semifinals of the competition. Both are the first matches at home failed to achieve a better result, and then away to the end were in the game for the final. Atletico had a much more serious rivals and courageously cope with Barcelona at the Nou Camp, while Celta defeated by objectively weaker Alavesa. Common to them is that the last championship victory achieved against Leganes, which beat Atletico in the last round, but Celta in before last, while their last round match against Real Madrid was canceled because of bad weather. And Atletico and Celta continue the competition and in the Champions League or the Europa League, and in the first season of the Atletico unexpectedly easily and convincingly won in Vigo 4:0.
Atletico have not given a good chance at the Camp Nou in the second leg semi-finals of the Copa del Rey, after the Barcelona at the Vicente Calderon defeated by 2: 1, however, as that is a maximum of abandoned toys Atletico so without any imperative played flawlessly and made for little great sensation. It can be said to have been damaged by the judges, but had no luck, because they missed a penalty, namely Gameiro shot just over the crossbar. He later scored for 1: 1, but had no power and for others who would have brought the overtime, with their one goal and canceled.
Expensive sold their skin, however, and spent in this view, a stopper Godin is injured, so he will not play in this match. In the last round they routinely beat Getafe at home with 2: 0, but also missed a penalty, this time Griezmann, with the rebound ran F.Torres and still scored. Since Gameiro is not in the best shape, F.Torres is increasingly starter in attack with Griezmann and so it should be now. The defense was a problem for coach Simeone, because apart Year, no Gimenez and will play with Savic Hernandez and Gabi returns in midfield.
Probable lineups Atletico Madrid: Moya – Juanfran, Savic, Hernandez, Luis Filipe – Gabi, Saul Niguez, Koke, Carrasco – Griezmann, F.Torres
In Vigo are certainly more disappointed elimination from the Cup, because they did not have such a negative result in the first match against Alaves and those 0: 0 with Balaidos are certainly offer an opportunity, and a rival is not from among those strongest. Special regret was also because the Celta in the quarterfinals eliminated great Real Madrid, and as a reward they wanted at least the finals, but did not succeed, because in Vitoria conceded a goal late in the game and with these 1: 0 are eliminated. It remains their hope that the championship can retrieve some of Europe’s position and bodovnio deficit is not large, but to have the game in hand, but against Real Madrid in Vigo and will not be easy to win a point.
Game Celta still and European league and there are temptations sixteenth finals just waiting, while before that have to do and this is a very difficult away game. Coach Berizzo now no longer has those doubts about the composition, as was the case when they were waiting Cup matches, the team now has to think about and European obligations and busy schedule due to residual match against Real Madrid. They have no major injury problems and perhaps here still runs strongest squad.
Probable lineups Celta Vigo S.Alvarez – Hugo Mallo, Roncaglia, Cabral, Jonny Castro – Diaz, Radoja – Bongonda, Wass, Hernandez – Iago Aspas
