Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams scored in six of the last seven H2Hs at this venue.
  • Celta scored five and conceded nine goals across their last five home games.
  • Espanyol have failed to keep a clean sheet across their last nine away games.

Frustrating Friday for two inconsistent sides

The goalless draw last time out in the league did not improve upon Celta Vigo’s run of just one win from seven La Liga games. However, Celta’s defensive prowess cannot be given too much praise for that clean sheet after horrendously strong winds kept the game from getting into a flow for either side.

This fixture has been kind to Celta in recent years as they failed to find the net against Espanyol just once across the last 11 meetings. Here, they hope that history can repeat itself yet again as they look to defy their paltry return of 1.0 scored goals per league game this season.

Espanyol on the up

What a return to the top-flight it has been for Espanyol so far – they sit just four points shy of the European places ahead of kick off in spite of their highly inconsistent five-game league form (W3, L2).

Espanyol’s away form has not contributed in a great way to their stunning season so far, relative to a promoted side that is. Notably, only Levante picked up fewer away points than Espanyol’s three so far (D3, L5) and this could be yet another tough trip on that evidence.

All in all, Espanyol are enjoying a much better campaign than Celta but their away woes make it tough to side with the visitors. I predict that both teams will score in a tight and tense affair that could end in a score draw, just as each of the last four H2H clashes in Vigo did.
