Diego Simeone’s side are aiming to extend their ten-point lead ahead of title rivals Barcelona against Eduardo Coudet’s side in the Spanish capital.
However, Los Rojiblancos have started slowly at the Wanda Metropolitano, with the Galicians taking full advantage on 13 minutes.
Hugo Mallo’s low cross into the box was not cut out by Atletico at the front post and Mina nipped in between two defenders to head past Jan Oblak.
¡GOL DE CELTA DE VIGO! 🇪🇸

Simeone’s side have looked to react quickly to that early setback before the break, but they have failed to really test their struggling visitors in attack.
