Eibar vs Celta Vigo
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 3 March 2019
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK / 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
Celta Vigo are struggling badly in this term of La Liga. They just don’t seem to be able to finally escape the relegation scrap and still sit right on the brink of the red zone. The Sky Blues only have a two-point advantage on 18th-placed Villarreal and Rayo Vallecano. They desperately need a winning thread to avoid any further complications regarding their Primera Division destiny.
Miguel Cardoso’s men announced better days with a 1-0 win over Sevilla exactly a month ago. However, they instantly returned to the old habits falling badly to the likes of Getafe (3-1) and Levante (1-4) conceding seven goals in these two losses. Last weekend saw the Sky Blues play a goalless draw away at Deportivo Alaves.
Can Celta avoid a defeat in the first game of Sunday’s La Liga schedule when they take on Eibar away at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua?
Eibar vs Celta Vigo: Head-to-head
Celta were the dominant force against the Gunsmiths in the last couple of years.
The Sky Blues won five on the spin against Eibar who failed to find the back of the net on more than one occasion in the process.
The streak includes a demolishing 4-0 victory for Celta when teams locked horns in this term of La Liga at Balaidos.
Interestingly, it’s Eibar who still lead the head to head tie by one win ahead of teams’ 18th clash.
Eibar vs Celta Vigo: Prediction
The Gunsmiths sit 11th in the league leader. They did not enjoy a spectacular campaign in this term, but they are at least six points adrift of their counterparts. Eibar only won 2 of last 13 matches in all competitions. They fell 1-0 away at Athletic Bilbao last weekend. They failed to score a goal after a streak of five subsequent matches which saw them bag at least two goals.
Since Celta were fairly easy to break down throughout the entire season, we would not be surprised to see the hosts returning to the old habits and netting at least two goals on the occasion. The Sky Blues shipped 25 goals in 12 away matches this season, while Eibar bagged 24 goals in 13 home outings in La Liga.
