Celta are in desperate need of points as they look to climb out the relegation zone but they will find it difficult against a Sevilla team who have the joint-highest away wins in the league.

Celta Preview – Can Celta find a win that could see them move out the relegation zone this weekend?

It’s looking ominous for Celta at the moment who have not won any of their last eight La Liga games. Their last victory was on the 24th November away to Villareal whilst their last home victory was in October. The only saving grace for them at the moment is that despite that dismal form, Celta remain in touch with the teams above them and could even move out the relegation zone with a win this weekend.

Oscar Garcia has been entrusted with the job of steering Celta to safety but despite being a Spanish native this is his first job as a head coach in La Liga and he is certainly getting a baptism of fire.

Somewhat surprisingly for a team who have Iago Aspas and Santi Mina up top, Celta are the lowest scorers in La Liga with 17 goals. It indicates that despite having two strikers who have been prolific in their time, if the service is not their in midfield then they have nothing to work with.

Aspas is doing his best with seven goals in the league and he will have even more motivation to add to that as he faces on of his former teams.

Sevilla Preview – Will it be a seventh win on the road this season for away specialists Sevilla ?

The battle for top four and Champions League football has been hotly contested all season but it’s Sevilla who hold a slight advantage at the moment. They sit level on points with Getafe in third and two clear of Valencia in fifth, whilst it’s Atletico Madrid’s fall from grace which has allowed them to move into pole position. Julen Lopetegui knows only too well that nothing has been achieved yet, however, and that a lot can change in the remaining 16 matches.

Sevilla, along with leaders Real Madrid, have the most away wins in La Liga so far this season with an impressive six in 11 matches. Their only defeat in the last six away games came at the Bernabeu in a game which they could well have taken something from.

This is the first of four matches which look pretty favourable for Sevilla whilst at the same time having the potential to be season-defining. They face three of the bottom half in addition to an away game with Getafe. If they can perform well in this run of games then they will be in command of a top four place.

No team currently in the top five have scored fewer than Sevilla and only Atletico Madrid have scored less of the current top nine.

Celta vs Sevilla Betting Advice

There was nothing to choose between the sides when they met earlier in the season – a game that ended 1-1 in Seville. Interestingly, that was one of just two games in the last eight meetings which have went under 2.5 goals between the two.

Key Facts – Celta vs Sevilla Betting Tip

  • It’s just three wins in La Liga all season for Celta who sit second bottom coming into the weekend
  • No team has won more away games (six) than fourth placed Sevilla so far this campaign
  • The teams played out a 1-1 draw when meeting in Seville back in August


Seven of Sevilla’s 11 away games have went under 2.5 goals so far this season which, when combined with Celta’s home record (nine of their 11 home games in La Liga have also went under 2.5) suggest this will be another low-scoring game. As such, the betting selection for this match is under 2.5 goals.
