Celta Vigo vs Standard Liege Predictions

This is a huge game in the context of the group, with the pair almost certainly battling it out for the 2nd qualifying position. The sides drew earlier in the group phase but Celta Vigo have improved considerably since then with some dominant displays in La Liga and they’ve been scoring plenty of goals, so they’ll be confident of winning this one.

Their Europa League games so far have been really entertaining. Celta have scored twice in all of their last three fixtures, however, they’ve only got 4 points to show for that with 5 goals conceded in their last 2 games alone. 8 of their last 9 matches in all competitions have seen over 2.5 goals and both teams have scored in 5 of their last 6 so there is plenty of reason to expect goals in this one.

Standard Liege have also been involved in their fair share of open contests of late. There have been over 2.5 goals in all of their last 4 games in all competitions and 7 of the last 8 overall. They were stunning 3-0 winners at Panathinaikos in their most recent away game in the Europa League so although they come into this match as heavy underdogs, they will take great confidence from that. Celta Vigo have gone 8 matches without a clean sheet in all competitions so there is plenty of reason to think the visitors can grab at least a goal in this game.

Celta Vigo have a bit more quality though and given the importance of this fixture in terms of the group, they aren’t likely to rotate heavily here and should send out their strongest available side, or close to it. Their standing in the group means this is virtually a ‘must win’ game for the Spaniards so they will certainly approach it in a very positive manner and will look to put the Belgians under pressure from the first minute. Standard should be a threat on the break though, so backing Over 2.5 & Both Teams to Score at 5/4 looks to offer value.
