Celta Vigo vs Valencia Prediction & Analysis

Celta recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last match-day in the league, against Alaves. However, before that, they were winless in 11 of the past 14 games before that, and in the process had gone on a a three-game losing run.

They are also on a four-fixture winless streak at home, and had lost four of the former eight appearances at home. Do also note that they have a single win at home in the whole of 2021, which had come against a team currently placed above the 17th position in the table.

On the other hand, Valencia were held to a 1-1 draw by Vallecano the past game week. They were also winless in ten of their past eleven overall matches, and have a single victory on the road since the second week of January.
