Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Barcelona dropped points in the league after a 1-1 draw with Valencia. The two teams were evenly matched over the 90 minutes, but there was a sense of injustice to Barcelona, who clearly opened the scoring through Lionel Messi only for the goal to be denied. Valencia capitalised on this fortunate decision with the opening goal from Rodrigo Moreno in the 60th minute. Barcelona, though, equalised through Jordi Alba in the 82nd minute. Celta de Vigo continued their revival in form with a 1-0 home win over Leganes. Iago Aspas scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 27th minute. He went on to convert a late penalty to give Celta de Vigo a 1-0 victory in the Copa del Rey match against Eibar.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Celta de Vigo have a habit of losing quite badly in their visits to the Camp Nou, as the team has conceded a whopping 17 goals in the last five. The 1-0 victory for Celta in 2014 is the surprise result of the lot. The goals from Barcelona have declined of late with the team scoring more than 2.5 goals only once in the last five. I see great value in betting on Barcelona to score under 2.5. Celta de Vigo’s away record makes for a poor reading with only two wins in six matches, but they have scored at more than 2 goals per game. Barcelona may have a strong defensive record, but Celta de Vigo have been able to breach the Catalan defence in four out of the last six visits to the Camp Nou. I will go with both teams to score.

Barcelona Preview

Barcelona felt a sense of grave injustice after the draw with Valencia, as the team were denied a perfectly legitimate goal from Lionel Messi. This result had a crucial consequence at the top of the table with Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid moving in within eight points of the Catalan club. Barcelona still have the best defensive record by a huge margin, as they have conceded only five goals in 13 games. At the other end, the table leaders remain the top scorers with 34 goals. Lionel Messi has been able to score 12 of those goals to take up position as the top scorer at the club.

Barcelona Team News

Ousmane Dembele (hamstring), Javier Mascherano (hamstring), Rafinha (meniscus), and Andre Gomes (thigh) are the players unavailable for Barcelona.

Celta Vigo Preview

Celta de Vigo have made the most of home games in the last few weeks, as victories over the likes of Athletic Bilbao and Leganes have been able to elevate the team to a top 10 position. Sustaining this position will be the key for Celta de Vigo going forward. In the next few weeks, the team will come under pressure from the likes of Girona, Leganes, Getafe, and Espanyol for this sport. Celta de Vigo have managed to 3 wins and three defeats in the last six matches. The team has taken only three points fewer than Atletico Madrid during this period. Iago Aspas is back as the top scorer at Celta de Vigo with seven goals.
