Sevilla vs Celta Vigo
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 7 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan (Sevilla).
Sevilla are flying high these days. Los Rojiblancos have been thriving in the final third recently, bagging an impressive amount of 17 goals in last four matches. They notched 12 in three consecutive Primera Division wins, a thread including the match against the current Champions League winners Real Madrid ten days ago.
Such form saw Pablo Machin’s men climb up to third place in the league ladder. Given both Barcelona and Real Madrid are struggling of late, we’d not even be surprised to see Los Rojiblancos at the very top of the Primera Division standings after the Matchday No 8.
Sevilla will come into this Celta tie massive favourites following such a phenomenal streak of results. The visitors did show defensive woes so far in the season and their back line will be under a huge pressure when they come face to face with the deadliest attacking line in the competition in the last couple of weeks.
Sevilla vs Celta Vigo: Head-to-head
Interestingly, it’s Celta who have a positive record in H2H games against Los Rojiblancos.
The Sky Blues won 15, drew 6 and lost 13 of 34 matches against Celta Vigo.
Sevilla were on a thread of three subsequent victories over the Sky Blues, but Celta won the previous encounter 4-0 in early-April this year at Balaidos.
Sevilla vs Celta Vigo: Prediction
Celta did well in the final third, inspired by the likes of Maxi Gomez and Iago Aspas. This duo combined 9 of team’s 11 goals. However, problems started to appear at the back for Antonio Mohamed. Celta shipped as many as eight goals in last four league matches which is way too many if we know the
opposition included the likes of Girona, Valladolid, Valencia and Getafe in the process.
Celta are winless in four straight league games and they have nothing to hope for against such a thrilling attacking line of Sevilla’s here.
