Celta Vigo are yet to click, despite one-third of the season already being over. They have delivered some inspiring performances along the way, but still they have a surplus of just one point over the relegation cut-off.

Meanwhile, Europa League champions Villarreal are desperately trying to recreate their form from the past season – but to no avail. They have been struggling to show consistency all through this new season, and have been letting in goals quite plenty too.

By the looks of things, expect a goal-fest at the Estadio de Balaídos this weekend.

Celta Vigo recorded a 3-3 draw the last match-day, against Barcelona, at home. In spite of their grave weaknesses in defense, they did show spirit in scripting a comeback after going 0-3 down against a a team like Barca.

And the team will be keen to keep the streak going. Their confidence is through the roof now.

On the other hand, Villarreal recorded a 1-0 win at home the last match-day, against Getafe. And just before that they had recorded a 2-0 win against Young Boys.
