Espanyol vs Celta Vigo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Espanyol come on the back of a humiliating 5-0 loss against Barcelona in the latest league outing. Lionel Messi was once again difficult to stop, as he raced to a hat-trick within 67 minutes. Barcelona were able to make this game as a comprehensive win following late goals from Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez. Celta de Vigo were able to secure the first win of the season by beating Deportivo Alaves 1-0 at the Riazor. Maximiliano Gomez was the star of the show once again after coming with a 34th minute goal, while Bojan Krkic missed plenty of opportunities for Alaves. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

I have seen Espanyol struggle in front of goal for a considerable time now. Espanyol have been able to manage over 1.5 goals in a league game only on three occasions since April. The continued struggles in front of goal may get respite in the game against Celta de Vigo, as the team has conceded five goals in the first three matches. Yet, Espanyol have scored only five goals in the last five games against Celta de Vigo. I would back Espanyol to score under 1.5 goals.

Maximiliano Gomez continued his excellent form by scoring the winner against Deportivo Alaves. The summer signing now has three goals as many games. Gomez has scored in two out of the three games for Celta de Vigo. I see excellent value in going with Maximiliano Gomez to score anytime.

Espanyol to score under 1.5 goals – 4/7

Maximiliano Gomez to score anytime in the game – 13/5

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

Espanyol saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played against Celta Vigo

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

Celta Vigo saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played against Espanyol

Espanyol Preview

The season has just gone from bad to worse for Espanyol. Just when it seemed that the 1-0 home loss against Leganes was an extremely poor result, the team suffered a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of rivals Barcelona. Espanyol are now without a victory in the three matches, and the upcoming run of games also do not provide a lot of confidence to the club. Espanyol will be up against the likes of Villarreal and Real Madrid in the next four league games. The lack of threat up front is a worrying sign for manager Quique Flores, who was able to get the club to an eighth place finish last season. Leo Baptistao has scored the only goal for Espanyol in this 2017-18 La Liga campaign.

Espanyol Team News

Adrian Lopez (meniscus), Javi Lopez (hamstring), and Oscar Gaitan (cruciate ligament) are the players unavailable for manager Quique Flores.

Celta Vigo Preview

The first victory of the season is a major boost for Celta de Vigo, who appeared to be on the verge of continuing from last season. The first two matches of the season ended in a defeat, and the club had finished the 2016-17 season with five defeats in the last six games. Yet, the home victory and a clean sheet over Deportivo Alaves provides Celta de Vigo with bundles of confidence. Manager Juan Carlos Unzue has seen one of the summer signings Maximiliano Gomez make an excellent start to life at Riazor with three goals already.

Nemanja Radoja (knee) is the only player unavailable for Celta de Vigo manager Juan Carlos Unzue.
