Barcelona vs Celta Vigo
Spain – La Liga
Date: Tuesday, 10 May 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Camp Nou.

The Catalans can finally play without pressure as they have mathematically ensured a ticket to the next edition of the Champions League. And now all their concentration will turn towards ending this current campaign on a positive note.

It is of utmost importance, since this will be one of the criteria which manager Xavi will be judged upon. After crashing out of the Champions League in the group stage, and after being knocked out by Frankfurt in the Europa League, the former World Cup winner will want his team to go on a smooth run in this homestretch of the league campaign.

Meanwhile, Celta are placed comfortably in the mid table, and they have nothing else to prove or nothing else to achieve. This absence of ambition can really be seen in their results, and their defense has been slightly lacking these days as well.

Moreover, they have been a mess on the road for the past several weeks, and now they are supposed to take a trip to the famed Nou Camp, where the wounded Barca will be waiting.

And to pile on their worries even more, they do have a poor head-to-head record against this opponent over the years- and especially so at this venue.

Taking into account these observations, anticipate a win for Barcelona this Tuesday.

Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Head-to-head (h2h)

Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Prediction & Analysis

The Catalans recorded a thrilling 1-2 win on the road the last match day against Real Betis and with this victory they confirmed their participation in the Champions League next season.

They had also won three of their past four overall games, and most importantly they will be eager to make amends for their recent loss of form at home. The team will be counting on the luxury of playing without pressure.

On the other hand, Celta did win 4-0 at home the past game week. But it needs to be recorded that the wins had come against the struggling Alaves. In fact, they were winless in nine of their past twelve overall fixtures, and they have won just once away from home in the last four months.

Finally, they have also struggled against this rival over the years in head-to-head encounters.

Taking into account these observations, anticipate a win for Barcelona this Tuesday.

Key Stats for Betting
