Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Prediction: La Liga Match on 09.10.2022
Betting TipBarcelona to Win
It has been a sensational start to the La Liga season for Barcelona, as they sit top of the Spanish top-flight standings after seven rounds of fixtures. They will be looking to maintain that fine start this weekend, as they host Celta Vigo on Sunday.
La Liga Preview
There is little doubt that Barcelona is back this season, and Xavi’s side has its sights firmly set on the league title this term. The Catalonian giants have won six of their opening seven league fixtures, and are currently top of the standings on goal difference from Real Madrid. One of their biggest strengths this season has been their defence, as they have allowed just one goal in seven fixtures.
Barcelona also come into this match having won their previous five in La Liga. However, they will need to bounce back after suffering a first competitive defeat of the season in the Champions League against Inter Milan on Tuesday. In their last La Liga fixture, they claimed a 1-0 success on the road against Mallorca. Robert Lewandowski continued his excellent start to the season, as he scored the only goal of the game after 20 minutes.
Celta Vigo will likely be happy with the start to the season that they have made, as they sit eleventh in the standings after seven rounds of fixtures. The Spanish side has won three of their opening seven fixtures. However, they have also been beaten on three occasions.
They have already allowed 13 goals this term, which would be a concern, while they do look an attacking force, having found the net on nine occasions. Celta were able to end a two-match losing streak in their previous fixture, as they picked up a deserved 1-0 win at home against Real Betis.
Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Head to Head
Barcelona’s record in this fixture is actually relatively weak, as they have picked up just four victories in the previous ten. However, they were winners in the most recent meeting between the sides. Celta has picked up points from this exact fixture in two of the previous five.
Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Celta has a pretty decent record at the Nou Camp across their previous five visits. However, given the form that Barcelona has been in throughout this season, we find it very difficult to see anything other than the maximum points heading the way of the Catalonian giants this Sunday.
