Spanish La Liga
Date: Thursday, 1 October 2020
Kick-off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de Balaidos (Vigo).
Estadio de Balaidos will pit together Celta Vigo against one of the strongest sides in La Liga Barcelona in yet another clash in the campaign. The host has been known to keep at least a point against stronger sides in the mix when playing at home.
The Celts are on an unbeaten run in the league this term, following a 1- 1draw on the road against Real Valladolid in the last league clash. Both their away games in the last three matches have ended in a draw, and their opening home match took all three points from Valencia.
There has been rising tension in the Barcelona camp and it has been in the news for a while. However, the Blaugrana will visit on the back of a 4-0 win at home against Villarreal in the opening match this season of the La Liga campaign.

Celta Vigo vs Barcelona Prediction
It cannot be said that the tensions within the Barcelona camp have affected their play in the league. They are off to a good start with a clean sheet win at home. However, the Barca team has been acknowledged to have troubles when not playing in the Camp Nou ground.
Celta Vigo enjoys the home ground advantage, and they have proved it in the opening home match this season against Valencia. Playing at the back of an unbeaten streak after three fixtures are likely to give a slight edge for the host even against Messi and Co.
Besides, the Celts are not handling the last season runners-up in the middle. The host has been unbeaten at home against Barcelona for the past five years. So, the visitor is capable of creating damage in the game, but not likely to hold on to that lead in ninety minutes.
With that stats, the tip for a BTTS will probably be a suitable option in the game. The match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair, which is why the tip for over 2.5 goals seems to be an ideal choice. The safest bet in the clash will be a home win for Celta Vigo with a +2 handicap in the clash.
