Celta Vigo 10/11 to beat Espanyol in Sunday’s La Liga clash
Competition: La Liga
Market: Celta Vigo to beat Espanyol
Odds: 10/11 @ Bet365
La Liga returns this weekend for yet another huge round of fixtures that will only bring more goals, excitement and controversy. The league table has remained incredibly tight which means that a single win can often see a team rise up a number of places, and with this in mind, Celta Vigo host Espanyol on Sunday.
Celta Vigo have been in good form this season and they are looking to move into the Europa League places for next year. After 22 games they have won nine, drawn four and lost nine, while they have scored 39 goals and conceded 32 times. In their last five they have won three games, drawn once and lost once, which has seen them onto 31 points. Celta are only two points short of Sevilla in sixth meaning that another win could see them rise above them. If they are able to secure a Europa League spot then it would surely be seen as a hugely successful campaign for the side.
Espanyol have been fairly good this season but they will be all too aware of how close the relegation zone is. After 22 games they have won six, drawn seven and lost nine times, scoring 19 goals and conceding 29 times. In their last five they have managed to win once, draw twice and lose twice, which has seen them onto 25 points. While they have been in good form and have built an eight-point lead, but this buffer is one that can be eroded very quickly if they go on a run of poor results.
