- Barcelona have scored just one goal in four La Liga away games.
- Those four games have all featured under 2.5 goals.
- Celta are averaging just 0.5 goals per game at home.
Barcelona’s last away league match saw them lose 1-0 at Rayo Vallecano, a result that cost Ronald Koeman his job. Sergi Barjuan is in interim charge and led the club to a 1-0 victory over Dynamo Kyiv in the week.
However. Barjuan needs to quickly turn Barca’s form in La Liga around with the Catalan giants enduring their worst start to a season in almost 20 years. Barca sit 9th with their lowest points tally at this stage of a campaign since 2002/03.
They have failed to win any of their first four away league fixtures and have been unable to score on three of their trips. Barca’s win on Tuesday ended a three-game losing run on the road and they managed to score for the first time in four matches away from home.
Celta out of sorts
Like their guests, Vigo are finding it hard to keep their head above water. The home side are just two points above the relegation zone and have the worst record at home in La Liga.
Eduardo Coudet’s charges have lost five of their first six games at the Balaidos scoring just three times.
Celta have also failed to score in four of their last five La Liga matches, netting only against basement club Getafe in a 3-0 victory last month.
Point to prove
Barcelona have it all to do after a terrible start but their torrid away record does nothing to suggest that their form will alter this weekend.
Celta need to get their act together as well and can take advantage of shoddy Barca defence that has kept just one clean sheet in four league games on their travels.
The hosts have had Barca’s number in the past and have the tools to frustrate the Blaugrana and eke out a 1-1 draw.
