Deportivo vs Celta de Vigo – La Liga: Deportivo La Coruña is a team that is always on a knife’s edge
Normally always having the calculator in hand until the final rounds. This year, they are in the danger zone once again, and they go into this Galician derby needing to get some points.
The team is coming off a loss in Barcelona, that ended up being normal and acceptable considering the difference between both teams.
This is clearly a winnable match for them, and it is being prepared very thoroughly, because the 3 points are fundamental. It is expected a practically packed stadium for this encounter, and Deportivo La Coruña will certainly not lack the support of their fans.
Celta de Vigo is a team that has good players, good performers and that is in the middle of the league table, on a more relaxed situation than their rivals Deportivo. Celta de Vigo should have a peaceful campaign, without any major upsets.
The team from Vigo has been getting some good results, recently drawing 2-2 at the Camp Nou against Barcelona for example. On the last 2 rounds, they got 2 losses.
First at the Mestalla, against Valencia, and then at home, with Villarreal on a match where they’ve hit the post twice, but were unable to score, and got 0 points in that match.
Despite Celta being on a little more relaxed position on the league table, they only have a 3-points advantage over Deportivo.
Deportivo vs Celta de Vigo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This Derby promises to be scorching, between two teams that will fight hard for the win. Coruña plays at home and will try to take advantage of that to defeat their great rivals.
Celta de Vigo is a little bit more relaxed, but they will face a tough environment and, truth be told, they come into this match coming off 2 losses.
I believe this will be an intense match, with a lot of fight in the midfield, and sometimes rough in certain periods, due to the match’s adrenaline.
I see this first half finishing goalless or with 1 goal at most, because it won’t be an open match, but a very close one, with a lot of disputes in the midfield, because the team will certainly have some caution, not going all-out attack.
