Two sides that will be looking to bounce back to winning ways this weekend in La Liga clash at the Mestalla. Valencia and Celta Vigo were both beaten in their most recent league fixtures, and defeat this weekend could drag them closer towards the bottom three.
La Liga Preview
Both Valencia and Celta Vigo are likely to be disappointed with the start that they have made to the La Liga season this term. The hosts come into this fixture sitting 12th in the standings, while Celta Vigo are just a couple of places higher. However, both will be looking to avoid losing for the second straight game.
Valencia has won twice in five games this term, but defeats are creeping into their record, as they have lost three of their previous four fixtures in the Spanish top flight. Scoring goals continues to be a problem for the home side this weekend, as they have hit the back of the net on just seven occasions this term.
The home side were beaten in their previous league fixture, as they lost 2-1 against Rayo Vallecano. Valencia’s only goal in that defeat was scored in the 93rd minute by Mouctar Diakhaby.
Celta Vigo come into this fixture sitting tenth in the overall standings, and victory for them could lift them up into sixth place this weekend, depending on other results. They will also be looking to bounce back after suffering defeat in their previous fixture, which ended a run of two straight wins.
Their latest defeat was a 4-1 loss against Atletico Madrid away from home. Celta’s only goal in that defeat was scored after 71 minutes by Gabri Veiga. However, that was a much more testing fixture than this weekend appears to be.
Valencia vs Celta Vigo Head to Head
Valencia has a fine recent record in this fixture, as they have picked up wins in the previous three matches that they have played against Celta Vigo. In home fixtures, Valencia also has a very fine record, as they are unbeaten in six, and have won five times during that period.
Valencia vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Valencia’s record in this fixture is a very strong one, and that could be worth siding with this weekend. Therefore, we could see the home side picking up the victory, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see both teams scoring.
