Eibar vs Celta Vigo
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 12 September 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
Eibar finished at the 14th spot in the table last season, capping off the season with a 4-0 loss on the road against Villarreal in the league.
Their form comprised 11 wins and 18 losses in that season, but 8 of those 11 overall wins came at home, which is why they will expect a strong start at home this season in the La Liga.
Celta Vigo was close to relegation as they were at the 17th spot in the table and escaped relegation by just one point in their form.
With just 7 overall wins and 15 losses, the visitor doesn’t look capable of turning the tides to their favor in the upcoming match. But a series of draws in their records last season will let their hopes fly until the last minute at Eibar.

Eibar vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Playing at home will give a slight edge for Eibar as their performance at home last season was a pleasant ride with just 8 losses from their 19 attempts as the host. They had only one loss in the previous five home matches in the campaign schedule.
Celta Vigo, on the other hand, had only 2 wins from their 19 outings in the league last term. The visitor had only 15 goals to their name from their away games and had a three-game winless streak in their away schedule of the contest.
With these stats, we can infer some probable outcomes in ninety minutes. Firstly, the match is leaning towards a home win. But to be safer, the double chance favoring Eibar will probably be the best bet in the clash.
Furthermore, the Sky Blues haven’t scored many goals on the road last season. This may lead to a defensive approach from them, which leads us to the tip for Celta Vigo to score under 1.5 goals in the encounter.
Double chance: Eibar or Draw @ 1.40 (2/5).
Celta Vigo to score under 1.5 goals @ 1.40 (2/5).
Eibar to win with a +1 handicap @ 1.40 (2/5).
