Celta Vigo Preview – Can Celta Vigo use home comforts?

Celta Vigo’s recent impressive run of six matches without defeat in La Liga came to an end last weekend when they were dealt a 2-0 loss away from home at Real Madrid, but the hosts will return to their Abanca-Balaídos ground for this upcoming clash with Villarreal still in confident mood.

Five wins out of these aforementioned six matches saw Celta Vigo record valuable wins against Granada, Athletic Bilbao, Cadiz, Deportivo Alaves and Huesca with three of these five victories also including three goals or more.

The hosts are also four points adrift of the top six in La Liga so there’s incentive for Celta Vigo to be on the front foot here, especially as they’ve won their last four home matches on the trot; goals have also featured as six of Celta Vigo’s eight matches at home to date have been over 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Villarreal Preview – Can Villarreal move into top four?

5th placed Villarreal returned to winning ways in La Liga last weekend when they registered a 2-1 home win against Levante after suffering a rare 2-0 defeat on the road at Sevilla in the previous match, and with just one point separating them from 4th placed Real Sociedad, the visitors will be aiming for another three points here.

Results overall for Villarreal have been very encouraging for the visitors as they’ve lost just twice all season, both of which have been away from home, but recent wins against Osasuna 3-1 away and the aforementioned Levante 2-1 should still give Villarreal plenty of belief here.

With just one loss out of their last seven matches on the road too, Villarreal look a force to be reckoned with in this clash.
