Celta Vigo Prediction

Celta Vigo have produced mixed results in recent times as the hosts have collected wins against Huesca and Villarreal but have also fallen to defeats to Real Sociedad and Barcelona, leaving them in the bottom half of La Liga.

However, both of these recent losses occurred away from home, and with their return to their home ground on Monday night where they hold a reasonable record of 3-4-2 15/10, the hosts will be confident that they can get something from this encounter.

Celta Vigo have kept 4 clean sheets from their 9 home matches to date including shut-outs from their last two home matches on the trot, while forwards Aspas (10 goals) and Gomez (8 goals) represent serious goal threats for the hosts up front.

The hosts have failed to score just twice at home so far this season and will fancy their chances of hitting the back of the net again when Athletic Bilbao visit this evening.

Athletic Bilbao Prediction

Onto the visitors then, and Athletic Bilbao sit four league places and five points adrift of their hosts Celta Vigo as they make a difficult looking trip to Vigo on Monday night. Athletic have suffered just one defeat from their last five league matches overall which was a heavy 3-0 defeat at Levante, and have registered a 1-0 home win over Girona too.

However, far too many stalemates have prevented Athletic Bilbao from lifting themselves out of the bottom three to date, and along with Valencia, they’re the draw specialists in La Liga with 10 draws apiece so far this season!

An away record of 0-5-3 7/12 continues this theme as the visitors still search for their first away win of the season, and indeed, they’ve managed just one away win from their last 18 matches on their travels overall.

In addition, Athletic Bilbao have failed to score in 3 of their 8 away matches so far and have kept just the one clean sheet – this could well open the door for the likes of Aspas and Gomez to take advantage here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Celta Vigo stand a great chance of collecting more points here but I advise backing the hosts with the draw no bet option due to Athletic Bilbao’s draw potential.
