Atletico won La Liga on the final day of the season and will be hoping to take advantage of the problems of debt-ridden Barca and Real Madrid to make it two in a row.

Diego Simeone has made one significant signing, Udinese’s Rodrigo De Paul who helped Argentina beat Brazil in the Copa America final and he is likely to play a key role in the heart of midfield.

Celta Vigo, who finished eighth last season, beat Wolves 1-0 in their final pre-season friendly and they have drawn three of their last four meetings with Atletico, with another share of the spoils priced at 9/4.

However, Atleti won this fixture 2-0 last season and are 19/20 to win again, 19/10 without conceding and it’s 7/1 for a victory by the same scoreline in our La Liga betting tips.

Verdict

We expect Atletico to start their title defence on a bright note.
