Celta Vigo Prediction – Can Celta Vigo return to winning ways?

Thursday night’s hosts, Celta Vigo have managed just 1 win so far in this new La Liga season which was a 1-0 home win against Valencia, but two defeats to Real Madrid and Granada either side of the Valencia victory make the hosts a seemingly vulnerable unit ahead of this clash.

The home side have picked up points on the road at Sevilla and Atletico Madrid in 1-1 and 0-0 stalemates, but they return to home turf to their Abanca-Balaídos where they’ve managed just 1 win from their opening three home matches so far this term.

Celta Vigo have posted mixed results at home in La Liga for some time as they’ve won just 8 of their last 20 matches in the Spanish top flight, which has also seen the hosts suffer 8 defeats within this sequence too.

An early home record this season of 1-0-2 2/5 certainly doesn’t warrant Celta Vigo being installed as clear favourites to win this clash and I feel there’s more value in backing the away side here.

Espanyol Prediction – Can Espanyol keep away run going?

Despite finding themselves in the bottom three of the Spanish top flight and with 3 losses from their first 5 matches of the new season, the visitors will have reason to be confident ahead of this trip to Celta Vigo this Thursday night.

It’s been a pretty ordinary start to the new La Liga season for Espanyol as they’ve already suffered defeats to Sevilla, Granada and Real Sociedad so far this term, but it should be noted that all three of these reverses were inflicted upon them on home turf at their RCDE Stadium.

However, the visitors still remain unbeaten away from home after they earned a point in a 0-0 draw at Deportivo Alaves and then followed that up with all three points in a 2-1 win away at Eibar, so they’ll feel reasonably confident that they can get something from this clash at Celta Vigo on Thursday night.

Espanyol’s case for at least a point here is strengthened by the fact that the visitors have put together a 6-match unbeaten run on their travels, and have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 10 matches on the road in La Liga.


Key-Facts – Celta Vigo v Espanyol

  • Celta Vigo have won just 8 of their last 20 home matches in La Liga
  • Espanyol are unbeaten in their last 6 away matches in La Liga
  • The last 3 meetings between these two sides have ended in draws


Betting Tips Verdict

Celta Vigo have been priced as clear favourites here but the handicap on Espanyol looks the better value play in this one.
