Celta Vigo vs Eibar
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 27 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Abanca-Balaidos (Vigo).
Celta dropped down to 13th place in the Primera Division ladder after a streak of six straight games without a victory in the competition. They are struggling to create in the final third without injured Maxi Gomez who will skip Eibar’s visit on Saturday as well.
The Argentine striker has four goals to his name so far in the season and his absence has to be felt on the pitch.
The Sky Blues could not find the back of the net last weekend when they fell 0-1 t home to Deportivo Alaves.
The Vigo faithful will have a complicated task to return on the winning ways here against Eibar whose form has seen a massive rise in the last couple of weeks.
Celta Vigo vs Eibar: Head-to-head
Celta won all of four head to head encounters with Eibar last season.
Apart from winning six points from their league clashes with the Gunsmiths, the Sky Blues dispatched Eibar with two narrow wins in Copa del Rey as well.
However, it’s the visitors who still have a positive head to head record overall with 8 wins to Celta’s 6 in 16 H2H matches.
Celta Vigo vs Eibar: Prediction
Jose Mendilibar’s men jumped over Celta in the middle of the Primera Division standings after winning four points from last two league outings. They bagged three goals past Girona away at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi before the international break, while the last weekend’s home clash against Athletic Bilbao saw a 1-1 draw.
Bookies see Celta as favourites here, but it’s something we would not agree with, knowing they come into this winless in six.
Since the hosts, who have been struggling for goals in general lately, will be without Maxi Gomez, the value is with the Gunsmiths not to lose at the odds of 1.72.
You can alternatively back Eibar not to concede two or more goals on the occasion at the odds of 1.66.
