There are several eye-catching games on the list, and the most difficult question of midweek will be which games to focus on each night. The fixture that caught the eye of our expert football content writers comes from Spain, where Atletico Madrid hosts Celtic. [banner][/banner] One of the most famous teams in the Spanish La Liga welcomes the first British side to win a European trophy in the Hoops from Glasgow as Celtic aims to build on their Group E draw against the same opponent at Celtic Park last time. The pair served up a stunning four-goal share of the Group E points late last month, and a similar result would surely suit the visitors, but the locals are hoping to secure a maximum of three points. Will they get their wish?

Madrid missed a trick

Atletico Madrid expected to win in Glasgow against Group E’s bottom club, but they failed to live up to the pre-game hype and looked fortunate to escape Scotland with a share of the spoils. The La Liga giants fell behind twice in the contest but fought back on each occasion, leveling at 1-1 thanks to Griezmann and at 2-2 through a strike from Morata. They finished that game with ten men following the dismissal of De Paul but managed to hold on for a point, which was a fair result. Atletico Madrid warmed up for Tuesday’s game against Celtic and the second part of a tantalising doubleheader with a surprise 2-1 defeat away to Las Palmas in La Liga. Despite being the away side, Atletico was the pre-game favourites, with pundits and Spanish football experts to take three points back to Madrid, but they suffered another slip-up. A goal from Morata on 83 minutes proved little more than a consolation for Atletico. The pressure is now on Madrid to get back to winning ways.

Bhoys off the mark

Wins continue to elude the Scottish champions, and they now have one point from a possible nine as we enter the second half of the six-game group campaign. The Bhoys are stuck to the bottom of Group E, and their chances of sneaking through in second place are fading fast. Anything less than three points from their trip to Madrid on Tuesday will likely spell the end of their chances of progressing to the knockout stages. [news_button][/news_button] While Celtic will take heart from a draw at home to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League and their opponent’s La Liga loss at the weekend, Brendan Rodgers’ side haven’t been too impressive in the Scottish Premiership. They beat Ross County 3-0 at the weekend but were far from convincing against a lowly opponent that played much of the game with ten men. Rodgers’ side needs a season-best performance to get anything from their trip to Spain.

Atletico Madrid v Celtic prediction

Atletico Madrid is the home team and will be cheered on by vocal support inside the stadium on Tuesday evening, which should make all the difference. The home support helped inspire Celtic to a big performance in Glasgow a fortnight ago, and the locals aim to match that in Madrid. Despite suffering an unexpected La Liga defeat in their most recent outing, Madrid has won four of their last five league games and remains within touching distance of the current leader, Girona. Celtic went through the motions on Saturday against Ross Country, and Rodgers was able to shuffle his pack a little to rest some of his big game players. The Scottish champions arrive in Spain with confidence to burn, but they’re missing several regular starters, and a weakened lineup could be dragged across hot coals by a star-studded host. Atletico Madrid is the pundits’ pick, and they’re expected to get back to winning ways. [banner][/banner]

Champions League Preview 

The pressure will be on FC Porto as they return to Champions League action on Wednesday evening. The Portuguese giants currently sit in the second qualifying spot in Group H, as they have picked up one win from their two matches. However, there could be a battle ensuing for that second spot in the standings with both sides currently sitting third and fourth within striking distance. 

Royal Antwerp are one of those sides, but they will likely need a positive result in this fixture after losing each of their opening two matches in the Champions League this season. The side from Belgium have already allowed a group-high of eight goals, and they have struck just two efforts in response.

Bet here 

Porto’s record away from home in the group stage of the Champions League has been excellent in recent years, as they have landed three straight wins. They have also netted at least three goals in each match over that period. This is currently their longest winning run on the road since October 2007. 

Antwerp remain a young side that are improving, as they have the second-youngest average age of any side in the Champions League this term. But, they have conceded a Champions League-high of eight goals from their two matches already, and they have allowed more shots and shots on target than ay other side in the competition. 

Royal Antwerp vs Porto Head to Head 

This will be the first time that Porto and Antwerp have collided. Interestingly, it is also only the third time that the hosts have come up against Portuguese opposition, having edged past Martimo in the UEFA Cup over two legs in 1993-94. 

Royal Antwerp vs Porto Prediction 

This should be a high-scoring fixture between these two sides that like to play on the front foot this week. However, it looks challenging to take on Porto, who have an excellent record on the road in the group stage, and have also won five of their last six against teams from Belgium.
