Celta Vigo 6/4 to beat Villarreal in Saturday’s La Liga showdown
Competition: La Liga
Market: Celta Vigo win
Odds: 6/4 @ Bet 365
With their sights set on widening their buffer over the drop zone, a resurgent Celta Vigo will host Villarreal from behind closed doors on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, despite still battling it out at the foot of the La Liga table, Celta Vigo were enjoying their brightest run prior to the break. In their 27 matches this year, they have recorded just five wins, 11 draws, and 11 defeats, scoring 22 and conceding 34 in return. Making their return to action holding just a one-point buffer over the bottom-three, it should also be noted that Celta Vigo hold the second-worst attacking record in the division. However, as for their previous run of results, Saturday’s hosts are unbeaten in each of their last five La Liga appearances, collecting two wins and three draws. Also collecting three top-flight clean sheets on the bounce, it is also worth noting that Celta Vigo are unbeaten in their last six matches on home soil, landing back-to-back victories.
As for the visitors, while Villarreal might still find themselves in the European race, they were previously in the midst of a woeful run of form. In their 27 La Liga matches this season, they have recorded 11 wins, five draws, and 11 defeats, scoring 44 and conceding 38 in return. With a points tally of 38, the Yellows mark their return sat in eighth and seven points adrift of breaking into the top-six. As for their most recent results, Villarreal have previously lost their last three La Liga matches on the bounce, conceding six goals and scoring just a pair in return. Winning just one of their last six matches across all formats, it is also worth highlighting that Saturday’s guests have failed to win any of their last four matches on the road, losing three of those contests.
