Alaves 3/1 to beat Celta Vigo in Fridays La Liga matchup
Competition: La Liga
Market: Alaves win
Odds: 3/1 @ Bet 365
Looking to carry on their impressive start to the new La Liga season, Alaves will travel to Celta Vigo on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Celta Vigo may have had their sights set on securing a return to European football this season, the Green and Whites have struggled at the start of the season. In their opening eight La Liga games, Celta have won two, drawn four and lost two, scoring 13 and conceding 12 in return. Struggling with their recent defensive issues, along with recording just one clean sheet this year, the hosts have also now failed to win any of their last five La Liga appearances. It is also worth noting that the last time the two sides met Alaves came away with a 2-1 win and have won three of the last four meetings.
As for the visitors, despite flirting with the relegation zone for most of last season, it has been a very impressive start for Alaves. In their opening four games, they have won four, drawn two and lost two, scoring 11 and conceding eight in return. With a points tally of 14, another win on Friday could see them briefly occupy top spot. As for their recent form, the visitors have now lost just one of their last six La Liga matches, winning four of those. Given their start to the season and their impressive record against Celta, we’re backing the visitors to come away with the win on Friday.
