Getafe vs Celta Vigo Match preview

Getafe has been competing in the Europa League this season. They had a decent run this season in La Liga as they are one of the top teams in the table.

The host lost three of their last five fixtures following a 0-1 away win against Mallorca in their previous encounter in the campaign.

Their record at home is appreciable with just two losses, to the likes of Real Madrid and Sevilla, within their past ten home matches in major competitions.

In sharp contrast, Celta Vigo has been winless in the last five away games. Also, they have recorded only three wins in the past ten away fixtures across all major contests.

Their previous encounter was on the road against Granada and the sides shared the spoils in that match after both teams failed to score goals.

The visitors took a point from the current table toppers, Real Madrid, at Santiago Bernabeu in a recent away match. It will be interesting to watch if they can repeat another surprise win on the road.

Getafe vs Celta Vigo Prediction

Based on their league standings, Getafe has the upper hand with a whopping 45 points against the 25 points recorded by the visitors in the league table this season.

From the above stats, Jose Bordalas and his team are in a good form in the league, notably at home.

Even though Celta Vigo surprised big shots in their recent visits, their form on the road is not stable and cannot be counted upon.

It has to be noted that the host has not lost to Celticos in their recent five h2h meetings. Hence, the odds will be against Oscar Garcia Junyent and his team at this venue.

With the betting tip for the home win in full-time at 1.80 odds, it is a good catch for the punters to go with Getafe as the favorites to win.

Furthermore, the home team has averaged 1.6 goals per match at home in the campaign. Over 1.5 goals at 1.50 odds will be a safe chance to take in ninety minutes.
