As the ongoing season of the Spanish La Liga enters the home stretch, Barcelona will be looking to gain a consolation victory, as it hosts Celta Vigo in a mid-week clash on matchday 36.
Barcelona will be hoping for a respectable end to what has been one of its worst seasons in recent history. Failing to advance into the Champions League knockout stages for the very first time in its history, the Catalan club was knocked out of the Europa League too, and has now conceded an unassailable lead to Real Madrid at the top of the La Liga table.
With 3 more matches to play, Barcelona has already booked a spot in the next year’s Champions League but will be looking to hold into the second spot. Sevilla, which has played one game fewer than them, is just 3 points behind and can take advantage of any more slip-ups from Barcelona. They take the field on the back of two consecutive wins, beating both, Mallorca and Real Betis by a 2-1 margin, and will be hopeful of picking up 3 more points against Celta.
Playing its 10th consecutive season in the top flight Celta Vigo has faltered in the last few weeks, managing to win just twice in its last 8 matches. However, one of those victories came in their latest outing over the weekend, when it thrashed a relegation-threatened Alaves by 4-0. Iago Aspas scored a brace, while Galhardo and Cervi chipped in with a goal each, to hand the home team an easy win.
Despite scoring just 8 points from a maximum possible of 24 from the last 8 matches, Celta has played well enough in the first half of the season, to keep itself out of danger, and is currently in the 11th place on the points table. Most football betting sites are finding it highly unlikely that they will be able to add to their tally this week.
Match prediction and football betting tips for F. C. Barcelona vs RC Celta de Vigo La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Camp Nou, Barcelona, on 10th May 2022.
Playing with a bruised ego, we expect Barcelona to go all in an effort to salvage their pride. However, they have quite a few players who are likely to miss this game. Nico Gonzalez, Sergi Roberto, Gerard Pique, Pedri, and Sergino Dest are facing fitness issues, while Moussa Wague and Sergio Busquets will be serving a suspension in this match.
Celta Vigo on the other hand has no fresh injury concerns, and coach Eduardo Coudet has a fully fit squad to choose from.
Despite playing with a depleted squad, we expect the hosts to overcome any challenges thrown up by the visitors.
Bet on Barcelona to win.
Each of the last 5 matches between the two clubs has had scores in excess of 2.5 at full time. Each of the last 2 games for Barcelona also has seen an aggregate of 3 goals scored in them, and we expect a similar outcome for this game too.
4 of the last 5 head to head games have seen both teams score at least once. Celta Vigo has scored in 3 of its last 4 matches, while Barcelona has conceded at least once in 7 of its last 8 matches across competitions. We, therefore, expect them to score at least once in this game.
