Though Diego Simeone's capital side are flying, Phil Kitromilides believes that the visitors can get on the scoresheet at the Vicente Calderon in the day's early game

Atletico Madrid's exceptional start to the season shows no signs of abating with Los Rojiblancos enjoying seven wins from their opening seven league matches.

No side in La Liga history has ever won their opening eight matches and Atleti have a chance to do just that in Sunday's early game.

Bet365 price them at 2/9 (1.22) to claim the three points while their opponents from Galicia are offered at 12/1 (13.00), odds that we a more used to seeing for visiting teams up the road at the Santiago Bernabeu.

It just underlines how serious a side Atleti have become and they should win this game once again - yet they may not do so by keeping a clean sheet.

Although Real Madrid failed to break them down last time out, Diego Simeone's men have only kept four clean sheets in the 10 competitive games that they have played this season.

Osasuna and Almeria have both come to the Vicente Calderon and scored and those two sides are arguably worse than a Celta team capable of playing attractive attacking football.

All of this therefore means that both teams to score looks overpriced at 11/10 (2.10) and offers punters some genuine value. This bet has paid out in five of Atletico's last seven matches and in all but one of their home games this season.
