Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Celta faced heartbreak the last match-day, as they saw a point slip from their grasp right at the end of the game. They were on the road and were facing the inconsistent Real Betis. The hosts had opened the account in the 8th minute itself, but it was equalized in the 70th, and it looked as if things were heading to a draw.
However, the hosts had other plans, as right at the end of regular time, they chipped in with a goal, which turned out to be the winner, to break the hearts of the traveling fans.
Reigning champions Barcelona meanwhile, further opened their wounds, as their terrible run continued with a goalless draw against Slavia Prague, in the Champions League.
They simply have no option but to record an emphatic comeback, to silence the haters, as well as doubters. Considering the four-game losing streak Vigo is on, plus their returns of just two wins from fifteen attempts, the upper hand goes to Barca. Coupled to this, take into account the form of Celta on the road. They have managed a single win from their previous 18 road trips, and embarrassingly this sole victory came in a friendly.
With the support of the Camp Nou, the desperate Lionel Messi and co should deliver a dominant win this Saturday.
However, taking into account the off-form Barca has been in for quite some time, and the pressure they are under right now, it’s doubtful that they would keep their nets clean. Add in their current defensive performances, which has been woeful at best, the scope of BTTS is very big this game week.
