Valencia vs Celta Vigo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Valencia’s incredible run of victories ended with a 1-0 loss against Getafe. Valencia clearly had the better of the opening exchanges, and their position was also boosted by Mauro Arambarri receiving a second yellow card as early as in the 25th minute. However, a deflected goal from Bergara in the 66th minute became the difference in the match. Celta de Vigo produced a shock 2-2 draw with Barcelona at the Camp Nou during the weekend. Iago Aspas silenced the home crowd with the opening goal in the 20th minute, but Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez helped put the home team in front by the 62nd minute. Celta de Vigo, though, had the last laugh after Maxi Gomez came up with the equaliser in the 70th minute. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Valencia may be winless in the last two league matches, but the team remain overwhelmingly strong coming into the game. Celta de Vigo have been able to achieve some unexpected results – including a draw at the Camp Nou. Yet, a repeat of the same performance in the subsequent weekend maybe hard to achieve, while Valencia also won against Celta de Vigo in the recent meeting back in April. I would go with a victory for Valencia. Iago Aspas has been in spectacular form over the last few weeks with five goals in his last five appearances. He was one of the scorers in the last game between Valencia and Celta de Vigo at the Mestalla. Aspas is my pick to score anytime in the game.

Valencia win – 8/11

Iago Aspas to score anytime – 7/5

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

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

Valencia Preview

Valencia’s assault for the first La Liga title in more than a decade has taken a breather with the team winless in the last two matches, although it is not a true reflection of their performances. Valencia have been outstanding going forward this season with 33 goals. The youthful and vibrant team has conceded a goal in the last three games across all competitions. Marcelino’s first task will be to get the defence organised to improve the defensive record. Simone Zaza is the top scorer at the club with nine league goals.

Valencia Team News

Javier Jimenez (cruciate ligament), Goncalo Guedes (toe), Jeison Murillo (hernia), and Ezequiel Garay (abdomen) are the players unavailable for manager Marcelino.

Celta Vigo Preview

Celta de Vigo have been one of the form teams in the division over the last few weeks, and a draw with Barcelona is a testament of the same. Even though the manner of the victory may not have been excellent, Celta de Vigo getting a point at the Camp Nou is a huge positive nonetheless. The recent run of results has put the club in the 10th spot, but the team may have to achieve a greater level of performances over the next few weeks if they are to sustain this position. Celta de Vigo are up against opponents like Valencia, Villarreal, and Real Madrid in the next four games. Iago Aspas is now the top scorer at the club with eight goals.

Celta Vigo Team News

Sergi Gomez (shoulder) is the only injury concern for Celta.
