Alaves vs Celta Vigo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Deportivo Alaves fell to a narrow 2-1 loss against Barcelona in their recent visit to the Camp Nou. John Guidetti provided the opening goal after just 23 minutes, and this forced a panic response from Barcelona. The equaliser finally came in the 72nd minute through Luis Suarez, when there was huge controversy about Lionel Messi’s 84th minute goal, which turned out to be the winner. Celta de Vigo picked up a 3-2 win over Real Betis to mark three consecutive wins. Iago Aspas scored a brace, either side of a header from Maxi Gomez, to cancel out goals from Sergio Leon and Andres Guardado.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Celta de Vigo have lost in their recent two trips to the Mendizorrotza, but they may be set for a first victory at this ground since 2009. Deportivo Alaves are winless in the last four, while Celta de Vigo have picked up three consecutive wins on the road. The New Year has witnessed Celta de Vigo in excellent form and there is every reason to expect a fourth consecutive league victory.

Iago Aspas has been able to score three goals in his last two games. The 30-year-old has a decent record against Alaves in the past after managing to come up with three goals in six games across all competitions. Aspas also scored in Celta de Vigo’s latest visit to the Mendizorrotza. I would choose Iago Aspas to score anytime.

Celta de Vigo win – 13/8

Iago Aspas to score anytime – 5/4

Celta Vigo saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Alaves Preview

Deportivo Alaves are winless in four matches, but the exit from the Copa del Rey coupled with a couple of important signings in January could hold the key for Alaves to get away from the drop zone. John Guidetti had an excellent start to his time at the club – after making the loan move from Celta de Vigo – by scoring against Barcelona. Hernan Perez is the other significant arrival at the club, once again on a loan deal. Alaves have struggled in front of goal throughout the campaign and the promise shown by Guidetti will hold the club in good stead. Ibai Gomez and Munir are the leading scorers at the club with four goals.

Alaves Team News

Ruben Duarte is the only player unavailable due to suspension, while Manu Garcia (thigh), Hector Hernandez Ortega (knee), and Daniel Alejandro Torres (discomfort) are the players unavailable due to injuries.

Celta Vigo Preview

Celta de Vigo have had a strong set of results to start 2018. Apart from the draw with Real Madrid, three consecutive victories have put Celta de Vigo in a position to think about a European qualification position. Sevilla’s inconsistent form has led to Celta de Vigo moving within two points behind Vincenzo Montella’s team. Earlier in the campaign, the lack of goals from Iago Aspas was a significant factor behind Celta’s struggles. Now, the forward has come up with a total of 14 goals in the league – to lead ahead of Maxi Gomez on 10 goals.

Celta Vigo Team News

Kevin Vasquez (foot) is the only player on the sidelines for Celta de Vigo.
