Celta Vigo vs FC Krasnodar Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Celta Vigo and FC Krasnodar will square off at the Estadio de Balaidos on Thursday night for the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie, with both sides looking to get back to winning ways. Celta Vigo were humiliated 5-0 on the road at Barcelona in La Liga at the weekend, in a game in which they delivered just two shots on target. On the other hand, FC Krasnodar fought back from one goal down twice to secure a 2-2 home draw against Spartak Moscow last time out in their Russian Premier League, thanks to an own-goal from Serdar Tasci and a penalty-goal from Fedor Smolov. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Celta Vigo have only won one of their most recent five home fixtures in all competitions, but overall they have been a strong side at the Estadio de Balaidos. They have only lost two of their 21 home fixtures across all competitions so far this season. On the flip side, Krasnodar have endured a mixed run of form on the road over the past six months, registering five defeats, six draws and four wins in their last 15 away games across all competitions. I’m backing Celta to win here, but I’m also expecting a low-scoring affair, as they haven’t scored many goals in front of their own fans recently.

Celta Vigo Preview

Celta Vigo have endured a disappointing run of form recently, having won just two of their nine games across all competitions after the winter break. They were on a four-game unbeaten streak in all competitions prior to their humiliating 5-0 defeat on the road at Barcelona at the weekend. During their unbeaten run, Celta Vigo managed an incredible comeback against Shakhtar Donetsk in their Europa League round of 32 tie. Celta initially lost 0-1 at home at the hands of Ukrainians a month ago, and they struggled to find the back of the net in the second leg until the 90th minute when they were awarded. Iago Aspas scored from the spot, while Gustavo Cabral scored the winner in extra-time to qualify Celta for the round of 16. The bad news is that Celta are winless in their last three European home fixtures, drawing two and losing one in the process. However, they managed to pick up back-to-back 2-0 wins in their most recent two European away games. Furthermore, Os Celestes are undefeated in four games against Russian opponents, registering two victories and two draws in this term. Celta Vigo haven’t been at their best domestically so far this season as they currently sit only in 10th spot in La Liga table, already 10 points off the European places. Iago Aspas is a player to watch for Celta, as he managed 19 goals across all competitions so far this season.

FC Krasnodar Preview

FC Krasnodar have struggled for consistency towards the end of 2016 and kicked off the new year in a similar manner. They were knocked out from the quarter-finals of the Russian Cup following a 4-3 defeat on the road at Ufa, despite having had a three-goal lead and even missed a penalty in the 89th minute. At the weekend, Krasnodar fought-back from one-goal down twice to earn a point from their 2-2 home draw against the current leaders Spartak Moscow. This leaves them only in 4th spot in the Russian Premier League table with 29 points to their name after 18 rounds, just four points off the 3rd-placed CSKA Moscow. Their away form has been a problem as Krasnodar are winless in five away games this season, drawing four and losing once in the process. Regarding their Europa League adventure this season, Krasnodar were the runners-up in group I, before winning 2-1 on aggregate over Fenerbahce in the round of 32. The bad news is that Krasnodar have struggled on the road in Europe recently, as they have not won their most recent three European away games, losing two and drawing once in this term. Fedor Smolov has enjoyed an excellent Premier League campaign so far this season, as he is currently leading the league’s goalscoring charts with 11 goals in his 13 league appearances. The 27-year-old striker has also helped the team with six goals in his eight appearances in the Europa League.
