A match that will conclude Saturday’s La Liga action will take place at the Estadio de Balaidos as a struggling Celta Vigo side prepare to tackle an unpredictable Valencia team.
Winless in their last four La Liga outings, the hosts come into this meeting trying to end a three-game LL losing streak that has seen them tumbling down to the 17th place. What’s more, the Sky Blues have secured just two wins in their last eight home games in all competitions, suffering three defeats in the process. Only three teams have conceded more goals than the Celtics (32) this campaign, with Miguel Cardoso’s men failing to keep a clean sheet in 15 of 19 LL encounters. Additionally, Celta’s defensive frailties have seen them concede over 1.5 goals per match five times in their last six competitive games.
Meanwhile, the visitors are winless on their previous five road trips in all competitions (D1, L4), with their last away triumph dating back to early November. Toothless in the final third and firm at the back, only two of Valencia’s nine LL road games have produced over 2.5 goals. Only Eibar (5) have scored fewer goals on the road than the Bats (6) this campaign, with Marcelino Garcia Toral’s players failing to hit the net four times so far. On the other hand, their tally of nine conceded goals away from home is the second-best in La Liga, with the Oranges conceding one goal or less on five occasions ahead of this round.
The last six H2H meetings between these two at this venue have ended with both teams scoring, while four of them produced over 2.5 goals.
