Celta Vigo vs Levante
Spain – La Liga
Date: Thursday, 16 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Balaidos (Vigo).
Celta Vigo is still in the list of probable relegation prone sides in the mix. They are not away from danger yet, and another three points will assure them more safety in the campaign.
Levante has no such concerns and will just look to finish the season strong. They are on a losing streak and is probably leaning to a third consecutive defeat in their visit to Vigo.
Celta Vigo vs Levante Match preview
Celta Vigo’s 2-1 defeat to Osasuna was their fifth consecutive league clash in their schedule to feature both teams scoring in a game. Be that as it may, they were winless in them with 3 draws and 2 losses.
The host is winless in their past five games. And at home, Celticos is on a four-game unbeaten league streak and they’ve scored an average of 2.50 goals per game.
Playing at home will be their strongest suit in the league since 5 of their 7 wins have come at home.
Levante’s 2-1 defeat to Athletic Bilbao saw them concede exactly two goals in a match for the second consecutive league game, and they are now winless in four league fixtures with 2 draws in it.
Away from home, the Granotas have only one win in their last ten trips on the road across all major competitions and have scored no goal in the recent two outings.
The reverse fixture this season saw Levante picking up a 3-1 home win. But only 3 of their 10 visits since 1991 to this venue have turned into victories.
With such a poor form on the road, the odds are against the traveling side in the encounter.

Celta Vigo vs Levante Prediction
Celta Vigo is seven points behind the visitor in the league table as it stands. They are not completely safe from relegation yet, and hence, all three points will be vital for the hosts from the game.
However, having picked up more than 60% of their overall campaign points at home, the Celticos are intimidating in their appearances as the host.
Levante is one of the worst sides on the road and their slight edge in leading over the host will be canceled by their 12 losses within the 18 tours until now in the campaign.
In their reverse fixture this season, Granotas had a massive 3-1 win at home. Since the Celticos are holding the ground advantage in the game, they will be glad to return the favor.
The home win with 1.60 odds will probably be the best bet in the clash along with a BTTS with 1.75 odds to yield decent returns for the punters.
