Celta Vigo v Barcelona Betting Tips
Celta Vigo are just having a mixed time of things at the moment with a W2 D2 L2 record in their last six games. Over the weekend they took a 1-0 loss away at Leganes leaving them with just the one win in their last five league outings. At home this season they are W7 D5 L3 and do have a bit of form going. They are unbeaten in seven home league games, winning three of their last four and their last one was a bit success against Sevilla. They have only lost two of their seven games at home against sides in the top half of the table currently. They have averaged 1.7 goals per home game which is a steady return while they have conceded at just over a goal per game at home. They have taken back to back clean sheets at home and under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 7/5 odds* (betting odds taken on April 16th, 2018 at 3:23 p.m.). Three of their last four league games have ended under the goal line.
Barcelona are marching towards the league title and came through a stiff test at home last weekend as they beat Valencia 2-1. They are W11 D5 this season out on the road but only played out a 2-2 draw in their last away game which was at Sevilla. They have actually alternated between a draw and a win in their last six away fixtures. If the sequence carries on, they are due for a win. Barcelona have failed to take a clean sheet in their last three league games, but have two in their last four away from home. In the bet365 correct score market, a 1-1 at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on April 16th, 2018 at 3:23 p.m.) is the shortest-priced option available with a 2-1 win for Barca at 15/2* (betting odds taken on April 16th, 2018 at 3:23 p.m.). Barcelona have averaged 2.25 goals per away game and they have scored in all sixteen of their road games this season and at least two in their last five league games (home and away). They have done tremendously well at the back conceding just 0.56 goals per away game on average.
Celta Vigo v Barcelona Head to Head
This will be the fourth meeting between them this season as they were paired up in the Copa del Rey. From those meetings, Barcelona have taken one win and two draws, one of those draws a 1-1 at Celta Vigo. Barcelona lost his corresponding fixture last season and have lost their last two league away visits to Celta. In the last five La Liga meetings, Barcelona are W2 D1 L2 against Celta Vigo.
Who will win – Celta Vigo v Barcelona Predictions
