Celta Vigo vs Valencia Prediction: La Liga Match on 05.12.2021
Two sides that have found winning games difficult in La Liga this term clash on Sunday in the Spanish top-flight, as Valencia will be looking for a first win in three, while Celta Vigo have won once in their last five league fixtures.
La Liga Preview
It looks to be a season is mid-table mediocrity for Valencia and Celta Vigo this term, as both clubs will be more anxious to secure their places in the Spanish top-flight next season by avoiding relegation to the second tier.
Celta Vigo should have slightly more confidence coming into this match on Saturday, as they won last time out, which ended a run of three straight draws. However, they still sit down in 13th place in the standings, and are just four clear of the relegation places.
Celta Vigo’s win against Alaves last weekend was just their fourth victory of the season, but they were made to work very hard to take the points. Santi Mina did put them ahead in that fixture on the road after eleven minutes, but Alaves found a way back into the game before the break. However, Celta would have the final say, as Iago Aspas scored the winner with 20 minutes remaining.
Valencia have also found wins hard to come by this season, as they have picked up maximum points on just four occasions in the 15 games that they have played this term. Only Athletic Bilbao have drawn more games in the Spanish top-flight so far this season, as Valencia have been held on seven occasions.
Three of those draws have come in successive matches, with their most recent draw coming last weekend against Rayo Vallecano. Valencia would have been irritated not to have come away from that game with maximum points, as they conceded a sloppy equaliser in the second period.
Celta Vigo vs Valencia Head to Head
Neither team hold a dominant advantage in this fixture, as both Celta and Valencia have won twice in the previous four meetings. The team playing at home has won each of the last four meetings, while the only team to pick up an away victory in this fixture in the last ten was Valencia when they won on the road in January 2019.
Celta Vigo vs Valencia Prediction
Home advantage has been evident in this fixture in recent seasons, and that means it will be hard to look past Celta Vigo making it two wins on the bounce this weekend.
