Celta Vigo vs Las Palmas
Spain – La Liga
Date: Monday, 5 March 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio de Balaidos (Vigo).
Las Palmas will travel to Balaidos high on confidence after holding the runaway leaders Barcelona to a 1-1 draw at their Estadio de Gran Canaria on Thursday evening. The Canaries have shown an outstanding performance against the league’s heavyweights and they will no doubts be looking to capitalize on such result and avoid a defeat in another tough challenge away at Celta Vigo on Monday.
The hosts will enter the match in the opposite mood having dropped the ball away at Girona (1-0 loss) to fall down to the bottom half of the league standings. The Sky Blues have nowhere to go at this stage of the season and looking from this perspective, the match has a much greater significance for the visitors who are locked on points with Levante right on the brink of the danger area.
Paco Jemez had several outstanding figures in the clash with Barcelona, but we have to mention the most recent addition to the squad, the left-back Matias Aguirregaray who has been just phenomenal against the table-toppers. Team’s top scorer Jonathan Calleri has also put in a tremendous display and he was the one who bagged the leveller converting the penalty. The Argentine forward now has seven goals to his name in Primera Division and he has found the back of the net in two of last three appearances for Las Palmas.
Celta Vigo vs Las Palmas: Head-to-head
Teams have nine wins apiece coming into their 23rd meeting.
Celta have been much more successful at Balaidos where they have won 7 and lost only 3 of 11 meetings with the Canaries.
Each of last nine H2H encounters has seen both teams on the scoreline and at least three goals scored.
Celta Vigo vs Las Palmas: Prediction
We just have to back the high-scoring affair and back goals at both ends as the main pick according to the H2H tradition.
Alternatively, the value is with Las Palmas not to lose by two or more goals at the odds of 1.70.
