Atletico Madrid and Celta Vigo faces are seen at the Wanda Metropolitano on the night of this Saturday, February 26. The colchoneros will seek to sign the good sensations that they have experienced in their last two games, especially last weekend when they beat Osasuna 0-3, and thus follow in the footsteps of FC Barcelona for a gap in the Champions positions. For their part, the Celtists hope to add three by three so that the dream of approaching the European positions does not escape them, although right now they have them at a considerable distance.
The last staging of Diego Pablo Simeone’s pupils was last Wednesday in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16, against Manchester United. Despite the fact that the rojiblancos were soon ahead on the scoreboard thanks to Joao Félix, who had a great meeting, the ‘red devils’ would end up getting the draw through Elanga. Regarding Celta’s last commitment, they measured Levante, the bottom of LaLiga Santander, however, they could not overcome it and signed tables (1-1).

To the rhythm of Joao Felix
Joao Félix’s match against Manchester United showed that he is a differential player. It became a nightmare for the rival defense, which seemed to have no way of neutralizing the direct game that Cholo proposed and that the Portuguese and Ángel Correa carried out to perfection. The defenders of the English box succumbed to the speed and verticality imposed and after seven minutes they were already down on the scoreboard.

The mattress midfield far exceeded that of the ‘devils’, who did not see a little light until the second half and shook off the pressure. Kondogbia and Joao Félix were the highlights of the match, and the Portuguese was chosen MVP of the match. Even so, the good feelings were not reflected in the scoreboard for the rojiblancos, who will have to continue on this ascending line to reach Old Trafford and sign their pass to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
