Celta Vigo vs Elche
Date: Friday, 12 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Balaidos (Vigo).
Celta Vigo has been winless for the past seven clashes in the campaign. After four consecutive defeats, the Sky Blues have improved their condition with three draws in their schedule as of late.
They will host on the back of a 2-2 draw on the road with Atletico Madrid last time out in the league. Having ended the winning streak of the table-toppers, the morale of the home team will be high.
Elche is closer to the bottom of the table as it stands this term. They are just two points away from reaching the ultimate bottom of the table.
Winless in the last 15 La Liga fixtures in the schedule, the promoted team is one of the weakest sides in the mix. They will visit on the back of a 2-2 draw at home with Villarreal in the last league clash.

Celta Vigo vs Elche Prediction
In their last two h2h meetings in 2015 and 2020, the teams shared the spoils in a similar 1-1 encounter in each fixture. Celta Vigo will play after forbidding two points for Atletico Madrid in the last clash. The host has drawn their last three matches in the campaign. Even with a shaky defense, the Sky Blues have still managed to get something out of the games.
In addition to that, the visitor is a promoted team struggling in the top tier this season. Elche is a strong contender for relegation this term, which shows their form in the campaign. Hence, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters. Along with that, the tip for over 1.5 goals will also be a suitable option in the encounter.
