Barcelona vs. Celta Vigo Tips, Preview and Predictions

Barcelona vs. Celta Vigo, La Liga

Barcelona fans may well have to still sit through the experience of Real Madrid winning a record 14th Champions League title, but they will also know that this season looked like being far worse only a few months ago. Now they could finish second in La Liga and face Celta Vigo at home on Tuesday.

Last time: Barcelona were three goals up by half time the last time these two met just before Xavi took over the reins. It ended in a 3-3 draw, however.

Barcelona vs. Celta Vigo Predictions and Preview

Barcelona’s transformation this season, from a giant struggling in mid-table to a Champions League qualifier possibly finishing only behind Real Madrid, has been nothing short of incredible. Xavi has turned things around at the Camp Nou and will now be expecting his side to push on right from the start next season.

But there are a few more games to navigate this year first – and Celta Vigo are the visitors on Tuesday. The Galician club has drifted around the middle of the La Liga table for the majority of the season, never really being able to consistently put together a good run of results to trouble the European places.

Both sides will want to pick up as many points as possible in the remaining three games of the season. But with little to play for, apart from pride, this may not go down as a classic.

Barcelona vs. Celta Vigo full time result odds

After an amazing run of results from the start of the year that gave Barcelona faint hopes of catching Real Madrid at the top, two home defeats in quick succession have ended any dreams of an unlikely title. Xavi will need to keep his players focused on the job at hand to able to beat Celta Vigo. They should be able to though – and the home win is priced at 7/20.

Barcelona vs. Celta Vigo both teams to score odds

Celta Vigo have lurched from impressive result to surprise defeat all season and have never really been able to score enough goals to climb the table effectively. Barcelona will want to give their fans something to shout about, so we should expect a home win here – but a bet against both teams to score looks like being the wiser option at 1/1.

Barcelona vs. Celta Vigo correct score odds

There have been times this season when Barcelona have really turned things on. The Catalan side has managed four goals against Athletic, Atlético and Real Madrid and Xavi’s new signings have also been able to add to the goal tally. That being said, the end of the season is now in sight – and with a lot less to play for we may see a more straightforward Barcelona victory. A 2-0 win at 13/2 looks a good bet.

Barcelona vs. Celta Vigo first goalscorer odds

Even with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ferran Torres coming in during the January transfer window, it must be pleasing for Xavi to see Memphis Depay still scoring – and heading the goals chart. Taking penalties certainly helps with that and the Dutch international may well be the one to find the net first at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night against Celta Vigo.
