Celta Vigo vs Villarreal Match preview
Looking at their recent form, Celta Vigo is at a better place than Villarreal in the league. The host is unbeaten in their past five fixtures with three draws in it.
Meanwhile, El Submarino Amarillo has slid down the table in courtesy of their 3 game losing streaks. Also, they have won only one of their past 6 matches across all major contests.
Sadly, three of the visitor’s last four overall losses have come in their matches away from home. This will be a concern for Javier Calleja and his team.
It has to be noted that the home team had their previous two encounters end in a goalless draw against Granada and Getafe, both away from home. So, Oscar Garcia Junyent will be glad to march his troops back to the home ground.
Javier Calleja and his team will visit after a 1-2 loss at home against Leganes in their previous encounter.
The double loss on the road against Bilbao and Atletico Madrid in consecutive games has affected the morale of the players at the visitor’s camp.
With the visitors struggling in the league with their dip in form, the Celticos will probably take all three points from the clash.
Celta Vigo vs Villarreal Prediction
The Celticos will have a tough task at hand to win against El Submarino Amarillo despite having the home ground advantage. Four of the host’s overall five wins were at home. Also, they are unbeaten in the last five home matches in the league.
Besides, they will face a weaker side in on-road matches. El Submarino Amarillo has recorded 12 more points than the host but has not been that strong in their away fixtures. Out of their 11 overall losses, 8 have come in their away games in the campaign.
The away side has been struggling in the league away matches. Hence, the host has a better chance to create more opportunities in the game.
