The Submarines are possibly in a worst start to a league campaign and find themselves struggling near the relegation waters. Their 3 point lead over the bottom three means that anything less than a victory on Saturday could push them in the danger zone.

Villarreal are normally known for their strong performances at home, but they haven’t lived up to this reputation so far this season. A humble 8 points from 7 matches so far makes them the second from the bottom in home table.

Celta on the other hand are 13th on the log, but 17 points so far this season means that they too have struggled for results. They are much better playing at home in comparison to their Saturday’s hosts, but their away record is quite similar to the men in yellow.

The Sky Blues managed just 5 points from 6 away games so far this season, occupying second from the bottom in the away form table.

One positive for Celta is the form of their strikers. Iago Aspas and Maxi Gomez together is responsible for netting 17 of 25 goals scored by the visitors. This is 4 more than what Villarreal managed in this season so far.

Villarreal vs Celta Vigo Head-to-head

  • Villarreal won the last four league matches against Celta Vigo by keeping clean sheets.
  • Celta failed to score in the last 5 matches against the team in yellow.
  • However, Celta did manage to win in 3 of their last 6 visits to Villarreal while losing the same number of matches.
  • Their last four meetings at Villarreal’s home ground saw over 2.5 goals, 3 of them saw over 4.5.

Villarreal vs Celta Vigo Predictions

Both teams struggled for results in the respective home and away matches this season which leave this as a potential open game.

Yet, Villarreal walk into this game as favourites with the team’s confidence and morale boosted by a 2-1 win against Real Betis at this venue 2 weeks ago followed by the 8-0 thrashing of Almeria this midweek.

Celta do boast a strong attacking line-up and they are unpredictable, but their leaky defense and poor away record make me believe that this match is poised to end in a home win.

Villarreal vs Celta Vigo Betting Tips

  • Villarreal to win @ 4/5 (1.80)
