Celta Vigo v Barcelona Betting Preview – La Liga 17th April 8.00pm

Barcelona made it 39 unbeaten games in a row in La Liga on the weekend with a win over Valencia. That is a new record which they have set and they have a decent chance of extending it further as they make a trip to Celta Vigo in midweek. Their opponents are just hanging around in mid-table without any particular positive form going for them. Barca may be able to edge closer to the title.

Celta Vigo v Barcelona Betting Tips

Celta Vigo are all over the place at the moment with their form, having produced a W2 D2 L2 record in their last six games. They suffered a 1-0 loss away at Leganes on the weekend which actually leaves them with just the one win in their last five league outings. Their home form this season is W7 D5 L3 and they are in some decent current home form actually because they are unbeaten in their last seven. In that sequence, they have won three of their last four and their most recent with a 4-0 success against Sevilla. Celta Vigo have only lost two of their seven games at home against sides in the top half of the table currently. Their goal per game average is at 1.7 at home this season and have conceded at just over a goal per game at home. They have taken back to back clean sheets at home and under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 7/5 odds* (betting odds taken on April 16th, 2018 at 3:23 p.m.). Three of their last four league games have ended under the goal line.

Barcelona just keeps edging their way to the league title and remain unbeaten after a stiff test against Valencia on the weekend at the Nou Camp, Barca winning 2-1. The Catalans have a W11 D5 record away from home this season and their last road trip saw them play out a 2-2 at Sevilla. Barcelona have actually alternated between a draw and a win in their last six away fixtures. If the sequence carries on, they are due for a win. There has been no clean sheet for Barcelona in their last three league games, but have two in their last four away from home. In the bet365 correct score market, a 1-1 at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on April 16th, 2018 at 3:23 p.m.) is the shortest-priced option available with a 2-1 win for Barca at 15/2* (betting odds taken on April 16th, 2018 at 3:23 p.m.). Barcelona have averaged 2.25 goals per away game and they have scored in all sixteen of their road games this season. They have netted at least two in their last five league games (home and away). Their defence has been fantastic having conceded just nine away goals so Barcelona to win to nil isn’t a bad option.

Celta Vigo v Barcelona Head to Head

These two have already met three times this season as they were together in the Copa del Rey. From those meetings, Barcelona have taken one win and two draws, one of those draws a 1-1 at Celta Vigo. Barcelona haven’t had things their own way against Celta recently, losing their last two away games against them and only going W2 D1 L2 in their last five league matches home and away.
