Celta Vigo Prediction

Celta Vigo have lost six of their last seven league matches overall in La Liga with just the one win amongst these losses which was a 1-0 home win over Sevilla. Within these six defeats it’s worth mentioning that four of them were away from home at La Liga leaders, Barcelona, as well as Rayo Vallecano, Real Valladolid and Getafe.

At home, Celta Vigo have produced a more steady outcome at their Abanca-Balaídos as they hold a record of 4-4-4 18/14, and although they suffered back-to-back defeats to Athletic Bilbao and Valencia, the hosts bounced straight back with the aforementioned 1-0 win over Sevilla.

In fact, three of their four defeats on home turf were inflicted upon them by top half opposition, with all three of those teams sitting in the top six of the division, namely Barcelona, Real Madrid and Deportivo Alaves.

Celta Vigo also possess a couple of key strikers in the shape of Aspas (10 goals) and Gomez (9 goals) so they should be in with a shout of getting something out of today’s match.


Key-Facts – Celta Vigo v Levante

  • 3 of Celta vigo’s 4 defeats at home have been against teams in the top six
  • Levante have won 1 of their last 9 matches overall in La Liga
  • Levante are without an away win from their last 7 matches


Levante Prediction

Visitors Levante haven’t fared much better though as they’ve picked up just one league win from their last nine matches in La Liga which was a 2-0 home win over Real Valladolid, and indeed Levante have won just twice in their last 13 matches overall.

As a result of this ordinary form in recent weeks, Levante have dropped down to 14th place on the Spanish top flight league ladder and are now just three points ahead of their hosts, Celta Vigo, as they make their way over to Vigo for this encounter.

The visitors have also struggled away from home this season as their away record indicates with stats of 3-3-6 15/21 which includes losing their last four away matches on the trot with losses incurred at Rayo Vallecano, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Deportivo Alaves, losing 2-1, 1-0, 5-0 and 2-0 respectively.

It’s now actually seven away matches without a win for Levante, with their last success on their travels being a surprise 2-1 win at Real Madrid back in October of last year, but since then, the wheels have well and truly fallen off.

Betting Tips Verdict

Celta Vigo can bounce back here against a poor travelling Levante outfit, but give the quarter-ball handicap on the hosts.
