Celta Vigo vs Deportivo Alaves Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview of the Spanish LaLiga match on Sunday, 21 June 2020. Kick off 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET at the Estadio de Balaidos (Vigo).
Celta Vigo is struggling not to fall into the relegation zone in the league table. Deportivo Alaves is eight points ahead of the host in the league table, but their problems on the road will probably give the points away at Vigo.
Celta Vigo faced Valladolid’s last time out at the latter’s home. Aspas I of Vigo missed the chance to put his team in front in the 71st minute via penalty as the match ended in a goalless draw.
The Celticos showed promise in the clash as they kept 60% ball possession in the game and had more shots hit the target (4 shots) than the opponent (1 shot) in ninety minutes.
The lack of finishing, which is clear as they have not scored a goal in their previous four encounters in the schedule, will be a concern for Garcia Junyent. But his team has conceded only two goals in the last five fixtures, which will be a comfort over his team’s defense structure.
Be as it may, Alaves is slightly above the host and also Valladolid in the league table. The Babazorros will visit after a 2-0 win at home against Real Sociedad in their previous encounter with the latter squad residing at the 6th spot in the table.
Even though the triumph against the top side team will lift the morale of the players, Asier Garitano will still be worried about his team’s performance on the road.
Their two wins in the 14 trips so far will not be favorable stats for the visitors. Besides, their prior trip to Espanyol in the campaign saw them barely touching the ball (30% possession) with zero shots on goal and a 2-0 defeat in the clash.
Trailing on a four-game winless streak in their away fixtures, Deportivo is lesser likely to concede against the host with just 5 losses in their 14 home matches until now. With the ground advantage favoring Vigo, expect a tight encounter with the ball drifting slowly in ninety minutes.

Celta Vigo vs Deportivo Alaves Prediction
Celta Vigo is the closest one to the three points in the clash. Their home ground advantage in the league and Alaves’s poor form on the road will aid the host in the quest.
Even though the home win is likely to be the suitable option, a draw no bet over Celta Vigo will be the best bet in the clash at 1.40 odds. It will yield decent returns and assure safety as most of the host’s recent clashes have ended in a draw.
We cannot expect too many goals in the game and even one goal in ninety minutes will be a surprise if not, considering either side scoring averages.
Since the host is the favorite to take the lead, the most probable scoreline will be 1-0 when the fat lady sings.
The tip for no BTTS with 1.60 odds will thus be a probability in ninety minutes for the punters.
