Villarreal vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Villarreal failed to garner any points for the second time in three games after Mallorca stunned the hosts with a 3-1 scorecard in their last clash. The hosts are on a three-match winless run at the moment and are sitting eleventh in the league, nine points ahead of foes Celta Vigo.
Oscar Garcia Junyent’s men have not been faring any better in their recent matchups. The visitors have been steadily slumping down the ladder and are without a win in their past five games in a running.
Their last clash on the road saw them admit to a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Barcelona, while at home, Getafe edged past them with a narrow 1-0 scoreline. It is also worth mentioning that the away side have bagged no more than two measly points from their outings so far and have been at the losing end in each of their past four clashes on the road as well.
On the other hand, Villarreal are unbeaten at home so far. And have also picked up the win in half of their last six games here. To pile on even more misery, Celta Vigo have got the better of this foe just once in their last three visits to this venue.
Hence, a return to winning ways is certainly looming large for Villarreal this week. In addition, the visitors have conceded two goals or more in each of their previous four outings. Meanwhile, the hosts have been keen on racking up their goals tally at home and have scored seventeen goals from their past six games.
Taking into account that all of their previous three h2h meetings here have also witnessed the hosts’ breach this foe effortlessly, expect Villarreal to find the back of the net at least twice in this one.
