Celta Vigo vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview

Celta Vigo have lost just one of their last seven La Liga games but are still just two places and one round of results away from the relegation zone as things stand.

Barcelona have recovered form after winning just three La Liga games in nine attempts by winning 18 of their last 22, including a 1-0 win over Levante last time out – clinching the title.

They have kept 15 clean sheets in their last 22 matches as they have won a fourth La Liga title in five seasons and are now nine points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of the standings.

Slightly surprisingly, the hosts are favourites for this encounter (due to the rotations likely by Ernesto Valverde’s side) at odds of 23/20 with a Barca victory priced at 21/10 and the draw available at 14/5.

This fixture tends to produce lots of goals with 41 flying in across the last nine meetings, so over 3.5 goals at 9/5 appears to be a solid bet with over 4.5 at 15/4.

A ‘double chance’ on Celta to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 7/20 while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 4/6.

If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 9/2 while Barca to win both halves is at 17/2.

Latest Form

One to watch for Celta Vigo: As ever, Iago Aspas is the dangerman for Celta – he has 17 goals to his name this season despite being disrupted by injuries and has 71 in La Liga since re-joining Celta in 2015.

One to watch for Barcelona: Lionel Messi is now up to 41 goals for the campaign (including 12 in his last 11) as he continues his devastating goalscoring form.

Long shot: Barcelona have 15 clean sheets from their last 23 while Celta’s last clash was a goalless draw with Leganes. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 13/1.
