Celta Vigo vs Osasuna
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 25 April 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de Balaídos.
The Sky Blues are one of the weakest teams in the competition based on recent form. They are placed 12th in the table at the moment, and barring Granada, they have conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the Spanish top flight.
Even at home they have been going through a dismal run lately, and are struggling with defense.
The only positive thing the team has got going is the fact that they are comparatively in a safe spot from the relegation cut-off, and are practically out of contention for the European positions.
Likely they could afford to play without pressure.
Meanwhile, Los Rojillos are on a terrific run. They are one of the two teams in the league to have won their last three matches, and they are also one of the five squads to avoid a defeat in the last five fixtures.
They have also been performing well on the road, and have scored consistently during the while. Moreover, they have an outside chance to qualify for Europe, and this will drive the team to deliver good performances going forward.
Do also note that they have a good h2h record against this opponent in recent years.
By the looks of things, expect Osasuna to emerge victorious this Sunday.
Celta Vigo vs Osasuna: Head-to-head (h2h)

- They are also on a two-fixture winning streak, and were unbeaten in six of their last eight clashes.

Celta Vigo vs Osasuna Prediction
Eduardo Coudet’s men lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Sociedad. In the meantime, Los Rojillos won 3-1 against Valencia.
Going on, the Sky Blues were winless in 14 of their last 17 overall fixtures, and they had conceded two or more goals in six of their preceding eleven games.
Note that they have also won just once at home all through 2021, and this sole victory had come against the 19th placed Elche.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a seven-match unbeaten streak, and they are on a three-game winning run as well. They were also unbeaten in 11 of their preceding 13 road trips.
Taking into account these observations, expect Osasuna to have the upper hand this Sunday.
