Valencia vs Celta Vigo
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 17 September 2022
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de Mestalla.

Some years passed since Valencia absolutely dominated the Spanish football scene, but this time around it seems that they are here to make amends. They are on a good run at home, and will be determined to deliver a winning performance this Saturday against Celta Vigo.

Last year, Valencia missed out on a ticket to Europe by just two spots. They finished ninth in the table, while a top-seven finish was a must.

While they are yet to find top form in overall games, they are delivering great performances in front of their home crowd. In fact, disregarding a single loss here, they have a 100% winning record.

And it deserves to be mentioned that this only defeat came against none other than Atletico Madrid.

Meanwhile, Celta finished 11th in the table the previous season, and that too with a goal difference of 0. And their two wins so far in the competition came against the dead-last placed Cadiz, and the recently-promoted Girona.

Moreover, they are letting in goals in huge numbers on the road, and to top this all off, they have a poor h2h record against this rival too.

Considering these observations, expect a win for Valencia this weekend at the Estadio de Mestalla.
