Alavés vs Celta de Vigo – La Liga : In one of this Saturday’s matches, in Spain, counting towards La Liga’s 22nd round
The local side Alavés and the visiting side Celta de Vigo face off in the Basque Country, at the Mendizorrotza stadium, on a match between two teams that will meet for the 2nd occasion this season,
with their first meeting finishing with a 1-0 win for Celta de Vigo, at home. The home side is in 17th place of La Liga with 19 points, while the visiting side is in 7th place with 31 points conquered.
The Basque side is making a very different campaign from the one they have made on the previous season, where they managed to avoid relegation much easily and were even able to reach the Copa del Rey’s final, putting up a good fight against Barcelona.
However, this season, they are on a tough fight to avoid relegation, but they have been recovering from the bad start to the season they’ve had.
The team has one of the worst attacks of the competition, and they are at a stage of some alternation in terms of results, but, still, they have been considerably improving when compared to the previous months.
As for the visitors, they are making a remarkable 2nd half of the season, recovering progressively from their bad start and already having reached the top spots of the league table, being only 2 points away from the last European qualification spot.
The team comes into this match in an excellent moment of form, losing only 1 of their last 7 matches and coming off 3 consecutive wins.
Alavés vs Celta de Vigo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Upon an Alavés trying to avoid relegation and playing at home, I expect a very hard-fought match defensively, with the teams’ defences being superior to the attacks, which should result, in my opinion, on a close match without many goals.
