Reason For Celta Vigo vs Sevilla Predictions

  • Celta Vigo are without a win in eight La Liga games (D5, L3) following last weekend’s 1-0 defeat against Valencia at Mestalla.
  • Celestes have won just one of their last 14 top flight matches (W1, D5 and L8) and are without a victory in six outings at Balaidos (D4, L2).
  • Fourth placed Sevilla have accrued ten points from their last five away matches (W3, D1 and L1), losing only to leaders Real Madrid (2-1).

Celta winless in eight after defeat to Valencia

A run of three consecutive league draws marked a modicum of progress for struggling Celta, and Oscar Garcia’s side put up a decent fight at Mestalla last weekend against a Valencia side who are unbeaten on home soil this season.

But Celestes couldn’t quite see the job through to earn another point, with Carlos Soler’s 77th minute strike eventually settling matters for Los Che. The result extended Celta’s winless run in La Liga to eight matches, and they have now won just one of their last 14 outings in the top flight.

Unsurprisingly, Celta are now priced up at around evens to be relegated this season, and they remain languishing 19th heading into this Sunday clash against Sevilla in Galicia.

Celta managed to bank a draw at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in August’s reverse fixture, and although they desperately crave an elusive victory to stop their current rot, a similar result here against Los Palanganas would ultimately be considered a successful afternoon for Garcia’s side.

Sevilla in good nick on the road

Sevilla won’t be underestimating Celta here despite their current plight, and the hosts have drawn their last four matches at Balaidos. However, those results have been against sides in the bottom six, which reinforce the limitations of Oscar Garcia’s side.

Sevilla’s record on the road this season is decent if not outstanding, with six wins and two draws claimed from their 11 starts. But they have been in much better nick on their travels of late, losing only to Real Madrid (2-1) in their last five outings, winning three.

Julen Lopetegui’s charges need to hit back on Matchday 23 following their narrow loss at the Bernabeu and a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Alaves last week, and a win here will help to solidify their top four place with a clutch of sides hot on their heels in the race for Champions League qualification.

Los Palanganas overpriced at odds-against

This has the feel of a very tight game despite the 15 place and 22 point gap between the teams in the La Liga table, and Celta are sure to scrap for everything as they seek to grind their way out of trouble.

But Sevilla have a fine record overall against teams in the bottom half this term and look overpriced for the win at a touch of odds-against. Lopetegui’s side have improved their efficiency on the road as typified by recent wins to nil against Valladolid (0-1) and Mallorca (0-2), and they can achieve a similar result this Sunday.

Backing another win to nil for Sevilla here is tempting considering Celta have failed to score in four of their last six at Balaidos, but the visitors’ are well enough priced in the match betting to play with a straight bat. However, we’re also tipping up a 0-1 scoreline in favour of Lopetegui’s charges, who can secure their sixth clean sheet from 12 on the road this season.
