La Liga: Celta Vigo vs Sevilla Betting Tips – Feb 9th, 2020 at Balaidos Estadio

Match Preview

Sevilla will look to strengthen their grip on top four when they travel to the Abanca-Balaidos to play Celta Vigo in the La Liga on Sunday.

Sevilla Match Form

Julen Lopetegui is doing a fine job, trying to better last season’s league position. His side is currently in 4th place, compared to last season’s 6th, and are level on points with Getafe in third place. Barcelona are 7 points ahead while league leaders Real Madrid are a whopping 10 points in front.

Thus, a title fight is impossible, however, a UEFA Champions League spot is not. They are 2 and 3 points ahead of Valencia and Atletico Madrid respectively. The latter 2 finished in the top four last season and will look to fight till the end for the same.

Therefore, Sevilla have a tough task on their hands and in order to achieve their season objective, beating bottom-half teams like Celta Vigo is crucial. After drawing 1-1 with Alaves in the previous league game thanks to a Lucas Ocampos penalty, Lopetegui will aim for all 3 points in this one.

Celta Vigo Match Form

Coming to their opponents, Celta are once again stuck in a relegation battle. After barely surviving last season by finishing 17th, Oscar Garcia Junyent’s men are currently 19th in the league table.

Picking up just 17 points from 22 games, they trail Leganes and Mallorca by a solitary point. However, Alaves and Eibar are 7 points away, implying Mallorca’s spot is the only one nearby at the moment.

Thus, all hope is not lost yet, however, Celta have to buckle up and start performing to rack up a string of good results. While they did lose to Valencia 1-0 in the previous game, Junyent would want his team to try and get a result from this one.

Team News

In terms of team news, Sevilla will miss the services of Oliver Torres, Daniel Carrico and Bono while David Junca and Ivan Villar are ruled out due to suspension for the hosts. Further, Kevin Vazquez is suspended for Celta as well.

H2H & Celta Vigo vs Sevilla Betting Tips

Head-to-head record portrays both sides as equals with either team winning 12 games apiece in 29 meetings. The duo have won 2 matches each in the last 5 meetings, however, Celta won the last 2 clashes at this ground, scoring 5 and conceding none.

However, the hosts are unlikely to pull off a third consecutive win, considering they have scored just 3 goals in their last 5 league games. Nevertheless, Junyent’s men have conceded just 6 goals in the same run and will look to keep it tight at the back once again.

The visitors will take inspiration from the fact that their opponents have won none of those 5 games. Lopetegui’s men have lost just once in their last 5 in the league and they will be favourites for this one.

Thus, Celta can be expected to keep it tight at the back, however, Sevilla can be expected to pull off a close 2-1 win at the end.
