Celta Vigo vs Granada Predictions

It’s easy to look at this game and write it off as a home win but there are several reasons why the visitors have every chance of getting a result.

The first comes in their recent games and the improvements they’ve made since the arrival of new coach Lucas Alcaraz. He took over a side that was disorganised and absolutely hopeless at the back but he’s made them much tougher to break down. They may still be waiting for their first win but they’ve picked up draws in 3 of their last 4 games with the only defeat a narrow 1-0 loss at Barcelona and clearly there is no shame in that. They’ve only conceded 3 goals in those 4 matches and they’ve utilised a back five at times which has really helped keep the goals out.

Further hope for Granada in this match comes from Celta Vigo’s lengthy list of absentees. They had two players sent off in stoppage time at Eibar last weekend leading to suspensions here while key creative force Fabian Orellana is an injury absentee. They named a strong side for their Europa League game on Thursday so there won’t be much rotation here and there could be one or two tired legs that Granada may be able to take advantage of.

They haven’t been in brilliant form either with just 1 win in 5 games and 2 in 8 overall, so they look a little bit short at 1/2 to win this game. Their home record in La Liga is pretty strong overall but they have been beaten twice at Balaidos already and are yet to keep a home clean sheet in the league this term.

Therefore, we have reason to think Granada will make a really good game of this and there looks to be value in backing Double Chance – Draw or Granada at 13/8.
