Celta Vigo vs Villarreal
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 12th March 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de Balaidos, Vigo.
Celta Vigo will welcome Villarreal to Estadio de Balaidos on Sunday evening as they hope to remain in the top half of the table.
This fixture will be among the entertaining fixtures this week, but will be tougher for the Celtas as it comes in between 2 Europa League fixtures. They win the midweek Europa League game 2-1 but they might rest some first team players in this game to keep them fit for the return Leg next week.
Celta Vigo will see the Europa League trophy as their only chance of European competition next week. They are far behind in 10th place and have 14 points behind the team in the 4th which make Europa League a priority.
Meanwhile, the Yellow Submarines have been good recently, with 4 wins out of their last 5 games in all competitions. They have the best defensive record in the league and should be able to frustrate Celta Vigo.
Having left the Europa League in the round of 32, Villarreal will now have to focus on the La Liga, hoping to end up in any of the European spots.

Celta Vigo vs Villarreal: Prediction
The game will be tough for both side, however the Yellow Submarines are slight favorites in this game considering their recent good form.
Villarreal’s away form have turned real good, they are currently unbeaten in 5 games and on a 3-game winning streak away from home. They have also kept clean sheets in 4 out of their last 5 games away from home and conceded just once.
We expect the yellow submarines to not lose this game. Also their defensive wall will be hard for Celta to go through.
