Celta Vigo vs Levante
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 16 February 2019
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Abanca-Balaidos (Vigo).
Celta saw a glimmer of hope when they dispatched Sevilla 1-0 in the previous home fixture in the league.
Sevilla scalp came out of nowhere as it followed a five-loss streak in the competition. The win helped the team escape the red zone, but the Sky Blues will obviously have a mountain to climb to stay away from the relegation scrap by the end of the season.
Miguel Cardoso’s men instantly returned to the old habits last weekend when they fell 3-1 away at Getafe. They are now just one point above the danger area and just can’t afford a failure in front of the home crowd against direct relegation rivals Levante.
Can the hosts back up the aforementioned victory over Sevilla and make it two consecutive home wins in the league?
Celta Vigo vs Levante: Head-to-head
Celta could rely heavily on the head to head tradition which reveals their dominance over the Frogs.
The Sky Blues won 10, drew 4 and lost 3 of seven meetings with Levante.
Three or more goals were seen in four of past five head to head encounters.
Celta won all of past eight H2H ties against Levante and they bagged as many as 11 goals during a three-win thread in latest home matches against the Frogs.
Celta Vigo vs Levante: Prediction
Levante will also be in danger of dropping down to the second division football in the final third of the season. They are currently just four points above the line (three ahead of counterparts Celta), but their recent form is not promising a pleasant period for their fans in weeks to come.
The team led by Paco Lopez failed to find the back of the net in last three league outings. They lost five on the spin away from home failing to score a single goal in any of last four matches in the process. We see this affair as a perfect opportunity for the hosts to escape the relegation scrap and we will bck them to maintain the dominance in H2H ties with Levante.
