Valencia will be hosting Celta Vigo this Saturday, in what will be the last fixture for both the clubs in the ongoing season of the La Liga.
Valencia started off the season on a good note and was in the top 6 for the first couple of months. However, a string of losses and draws in the middle of the first half saw them go down the table, and they have been unable to recover since then. In fact, Valencia has been unable to win in any of its last 8 matches, picking up just 5 points from a possible of 24.
As a result, they now find themselves in the 11th spot on the points table, trailing their Saturday opponents by 1 point. A win in this game can take them to a consolation finish in the top half, but they have no chance of a European finish. Valencia traveled to Catalan to play its latest game against Espanyol, and both the teams shared 1 point each, after ending at a 1-1 draw.
Most football betting sites are predicting a similar outcome for this match too.
Celta Vigo will be hoping to put up a repeat performance of the result that it got last Sunday when it beat Elche 1-0. Denis Suarez scored the lone goal of the match, handing Celta Vigo important points. With that victory, Celta has picked up points in 3 of its last 4 matches and moved into the top half of the table. Just like Valencia, Celta Vigo has no chance of making it to a European finish, as 7th placed Villarreal is 10 points ahead, but it will be playing for pride when it takes on the field this weekend.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Valencia CF vs RC Celta de Vigo La Liga 2021-22. The match will be played at the Mestalla Stadium, Valencia, on 21st May 2022.
The current season has thrown up some close matches and given the current forms and on paper strengths of both the clubs, it wouldn’t be surprising if we get to see one this weekend.
Jose Bordalas has a relatively injury-free squad to choose from, with the only exception being Gabriel Paulista. On the other hand, the visitors are likely to miss the services of Franco Cervi, Nolito, Santi Mina, and Hugo Mallo for this last match.
As mentioned earlier, we are predicting a close game, with neither of the teams enjoying a significant advantage over the other.
Bet on a draw.
In 10 of the last 13 head-to-head matches across competitions, both the teams have managed to score at least once by the time the final whistle blew. Celta has scored in each of its last 4 matches, with 2 of them seeing both the teams score, and we expect a similar result in this match.
5 of the last 8 matches between the 2 teams have seen less than 2.5 goals scored in them. 4 of the last 5 matches involving Valencia, and 5 of the last 7 matches involving Celta Vigo too have seen fewer than 2.5 goals, adding weight to our recommendation.
