Espanyol vs Celta Vigo Prediction & Match Preview

Espanyol vs Celta Vigo
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Wednesday, 24th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: RCDE Stadium (Barcelona).

Espanyol won their last two games in the league, and with this one being at home, and that too against a relegation-battler, the team will go in for the kill. The reason being, they are just five points away from a Europa League spot, which would be huge for a low-profile team of the likes of them.

The match should be interesting considering that Celta is leading a brave charge under the guidance of Iago Aspas to escape from the relegation zone. As of now, with six match-days to go, they still are stuck in the exit-mix and will have to keep on with their momentum to ensure their season does not become a disaster.

Espanyol vs Celta Vigo Head-to-head (h2h)

  • 22 of the last 28 wins belong to the teams at home.
  • The last four games in a row had goals at either end of the pitch.
  • 12 of the last 15 wins at this venue went to the hosts.
  • Celta has found the back of the net in the last eight fixtures.

Espanyol vs Celta Vigo Prediction

Espanyol has an outside chance to make it to Europe with just six match-days remaining. With the team practically secure from relegation, they see no reason why they should play it safe. They do have the home advantage and are taking on a relegation battler. Moreover, they have dominated Celta for quite a long time, and especially at this venue.

To be precise, Espanyol registered 12 of the last 15 wins at this stadium, and 22 of the last 28 overall h2h wins went to the teams at home. As such, expect the hosts to carve out the three points.

But Celta is fighting for their future and has been putting in brave performances. Also, they have found the back of the net against this team on the last eight occasions. Finally, the last four straight h2h encounters had both teams on the scorecard, and Espanyol conceded in their last nine home ties.

Expect either team to get in on the goal-scoring action.
