Celta Vigo vs Real Valladolid Prediction

Vigo was on the road the prior game week and was desperate for at least a point. They had been going through a series of losses, and against Villarreal, the team had simply no other go but to deliver.

The first half went along expected lines, but the visitors raised their game and tempo in the latter half. They scored the opener of the match in the 54th minute, and though it was equalized five minutes later, the guests had the resolve to take back the lead, with two more goals. Keep note that the final goal had come in the 90+4th minute.

Meanwhile, Valladolid could not make much of their home status against Sevilla the last match-day, as they conceded a lone goal in the 13th minute, via a penalty, which later turned out to be the winner.

As things stand, previous h2h clashes have definitely laid out a trend. Home teams have reigned supreme in these encounters, and the trend has been taken to its extreme at this venue. To quote a stat, nine of the former twelve overall h2h wins went to the teams that had home advantage.

Moreover, Celta have been a dominant force in these games for quite some time. In fact, 15 of the last 19 h2h wins went to Vigo, and eight of the previous nine at this venue as well. In addition, the only victory for Valladolid against this opponent at this stadium in the last two decades had come in 2011.

Finally, Valladolid have been struggling on the road all through this year. They have secured a total of just two wins from their preceding thirteen road trips. Coupling these factors with the inspirational win Vigo had the last match-day, we can count on them to give a formidable effort on the pitch for the three points.

As such, the top pick for the day is a win for Celta Vigo.
