Barcelona vs Celta de Vigo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This season, Barcelona and Celta have already met in 2 occasions and both matches finished tied with goals (1-1 and 2-2).
Celta’s goal scoring prowess has been consistent over the course of the season, since they already played 21 official matches and only failed to score twice.
On the other hand, it is rare to see Barcelona failing to score at home, which leads me to believe there will be goals from both sides here.
