It has been a disappointing start to the Champions League campaign for Celtic, as they currently sit bottom of the Group E standings after losing each of their opening two matches. The Scottish giants have scored just once across their opening two fixtures, and they have allowed a Group E-high of four goals.
Celtic have struggled in the Champions League in recent seasons, evident from the fact that they have landed a victory on just one occasion in their previous 23 matches. They are also winless in their last 12 overall, and have gone eleven home matches without landing victory.
Atletico Madrid will be looking to turn the screw at the top of the standings this week, as they chase a second straight victory in the competition. The Spanish giants are unbeaten in their last six showdowns against Celtic, winning on four occasions. That includes victory in both showdowns in the Europa League in 2011-12.
Atletico Madrid have looked back to their best in recent months, as they have won each of their last six across all competitions. That includes a 3-2 win over Feyenoord in their previous match in the Champions League on October 4.
Celtic vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Atletico’s record in this fixture looks extremely challenging to overlook this week. Therefore, we will be siding with the Spanish giants picking up maximum points to extend their advantage at the top of the standings.
