Celta de Vigo vs Espanyol – La Liga: In one of this Sunday’s matches in Spain, counting towards the 23rd round of La Liga
The local side Celta de Vigo and the visiting side Espanyol face off at the Balaídos, on a match between two teams that will meet for the 2nd time this season,
with their first encounter finishing with a 2-1 win for the Catalans. The home side is in 8th place with 31 points, while the visitors are in 15th place with 25 points.
The home side is making a positive campaign this season in terms of the league, being very near the European qualification zone and managing,
on the past few weeks, with the good results they’ve obtained, to climb on the standings, pushing back the ghosts of relegation that could haunt them.
The team has one of the best offensives but not so much on defence, and they are coming off a positive streak of results in La Liga, winning 3 of the last 4 matches they’ve played, having scored in all of them.
As for the visiting side, they are making a decent season, being on the bottom half of the league table but far from some of their best previous campaigns, although they still have a comfortable advantage over the relegation zone, of roughly 7 points.
The team has one of the worst offensive records of the competition, scoring less than 1 goal per match, on average, with not a particularly good defensive record as visitors (18 goals scored in 10 matches), coming off 4 matches without a win (losing 3 of them).
Celta de Vigo vs Espanyol – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Upon a Celta de Vigo on a positive moment of form and with the team being one of the best goal scoring teams in the competition but also one of the teams that concedes the most goals,
I believe we’ll have a match with at least 2 or 3 goals, since the hosts present good ability to score but also concede a lot of goals.
