Granada vs Celta Vigo Match Preview
Granada made light work of Osasuna last week on the road by slotting three unanswered goals past the latter. The hosts are now sporting an impressive two-match winning streak under their belt, and have admitted defeat just once in their past four clashes.
With thirty-six points in the bag, the home team have now climbed up to ninth on the ladder and are currently just four points shy of a spot to the Europa League qualifiers.
Meanwhile, the visitors have been convincing in their recent clashes and are at the moment, on a three-match unbeaten run in the top flight.
Their most recent fixture, in particular, saw the guests pull off a 1-0 win over Leganes at home. Be that as it may, Celta Vigo are still hovering dangerously close to the relegation zone, as we speak.
As such, a defeat this week send them plummeting back into the bottom three, while a win for Granada would see them climb closer to the top six.
Granada vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Granada have been tasting nothing but success in their clashes here as of late. In fact, the hosts have secured maximum points from their last three games at home, and are unbeaten since the start of the new year as well.
In sharp contrast, Celta Vigo have admitted defeat in three of their past five fixtures away from home. To make matters worse, the visitors have not come out on top in their outings since their 3-1 win over Villarreal, back in late November, which is also their only victory on the road this season.
Given Granada’s blistering run of form at home, Celta Vigo can rule out any chances of picking up the win this week.
Be that as it may, the visitors are unbeaten in their past four trips to this stadium. Taking into account that the guests have also salvaged a point four times on the road, back a double chance, just to be on the safer side.
Furthermore, Granada’s backline have looked solid at home this season. Admirably, they have kept a clean sheet in half of their past twelve games here and have conceded just eight goals in the process.
It is also worth mentioning that four of their past seven h2h meetings here have been low scoring affairs. Considering that the reverse fixture of clash also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, expect no more than a goal or two, at the most, in this one as well.
