Celta Vigo vs Las Palmas Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Celta de Vigo slipped to a third consecutive away defeat, as Girona were able to get a 1-0 win over Juan Carlos Unzue’s team during the midweek matches. The hosts were able to get a lead after 14 minutes when Portu scored a fine goal. Celta de Vigo had chances through Iago Aspas and Maxi Gomez, but both players failed to make the opportunities count. Las Palmas enjoyed one of their best results this season after a 1-1 draw with Barcelona at the Gran Canaria. Even though the Spanish giants took the lead through Lionel Messi’s free kick in the 21st minute, Las Palmas were able to level the scores through Jonathan Calleri’s penalty in the 49th minute.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Unzue’s team are looking to complete the double over Las Palmas after a comprehensive 5-2 win at the Gran Canaria earlier in the campaign. Despite just one clean sheet at the Balaidos in the last six matches, Celta have a great opportunity to aim for a second consecutive blank. Las Palmas last managed an away goal back in November. Even with the likes of Jonathan Calleri in decent form, I would go with a clean sheet for Celta de Vigo. Maxi Gomez and Iago Aspas have scored almost 70% of Celta’s goals this season. The former is especially versatile with the ability to score with his head or feet. Iago Aspas scored a hat-trick against Las Palmas earlier in the campaign, but Gomez was unavailable for the game. I would back Maxi Gomez to score anytime, and he is available at an attractive price compared to Aspas.

Celta de Vigo clean sheet – 5/4

Maxi Gomez to score anytime – 21/20

Celta Vigo saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Celta Vigo Preview

Celta de Vigo manager Unzue will be delighted to return to the Balaidos, as the club has been going through a terrible patch of away results. If the loss against Deportivo Alaves and Getafe seemed bad enough, the defeat against Girona makes it three away defeats on the bounce. This worsens the club’s away record even further, but the club has had an excellent time at the Balaidos. The loss against Villarreal in the middle of December is the only home defeat for Celta de Vigo in the last nine games – an impressive feat considering that Real Madrid and Barcelona have both visited the Balaidos during this period. Iago Aspas and Maxi Gomez are the top scorers with 16 and 13 goals respectively.

Celta Vigo Team News

Andreu Fontas is not set for a return until the end of March due to a hamstring injury, while Diego Alende is scheduled to return only in late April due to his ligament injury.

Las Palmas Preview

The Las Palmas outfit may need wins in order to get them out of the relegation zone, but the team will derive a lot of confidence from taking points against the likes of Athletic Bilbao. However, the pinnacle of Las Palmas’ campaign came in the form of a draw with Barcelona. The last five matches has seen just one defeat for Jemez and his team, although this period has also yielded just a single win. Jonathan Calleri tops the scoring charts at Las Palmas with seven league goals.

Las Palmas Team News

Paco Jemez will be missing Pedro Bigas and Gabriel Penalba, as the two players are unavailable due to knee injuries. Emmanuel Emenike is also suffering from a knee injury, but his status is being monitored on a daily basis.
