Celta de Vigo vs Espanyol – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With the odds around Evens, I believe that the best bet for this match is on the goals’ market, more precisely on the “Over 2.5 Goals” line.
Except their trip to Braga, where they didn’t count with their main players like Sisto and Aspas, all the other of Celta’s friendlies have had goals from both sides,
which is a clear sign of their offensive quality and some permissiveness without the ball, that they’ve already been showing since last season.
I highlight here the great finishing ability that Espanyol has been showing since the pre-season, where they’ve scored at least 2 goals in all of the friendlies they’ve played.
That way, it would be a great surprise if the “Over” wasn’t surpassed on their debut at the Balaídos..
