However, despite an impressive brace from Luis Suarez, Los Rojiblancos’ impressive winning run ends at eight games.
The hosts struggled to make an impact in the first half with Celta front man Santi Mina deservedly heading them in front after 13 minutes.
Suarez then showed his trademark poacher’s instinct in first half added time as he swept home Marcos Llorente’s pass.

But despite Simeone’s hosts looking nailed on to seal a ninth straight win, Facundo Ferreyra popped up in the Atletico box in the 90th minute, to confidently slot past Jan Oblak.
