Celta Vigo Betting News
Celta is not in the best form currently. The Spanish team won only one out of their last six matches in all competitions and they are anxious before this very important match. It is interesting that decline in their form came after the series of six victories in all competitions and nobody expected that to happen. However, now they have to find their way back into the regular form and raise above the occasion. They also failed to score in three out of those six games and it is clearly the biggest issue Hertha has before this match.
Shakhtar Donetsk Betting News
Shakhtar finished first in their Europa League qualifying group. They are solving all problems both in domestic league and in European competitions in an easy fashion. In the whole season Shakhtar has been playing superbly and it seems that it will take much more than regular self confidence. But, for defeating Celta it will take a whole different level, since they are facing the team that posed many problems to mighty Barcelona recently. They will surely be happy with a draw in the forthcoming match.
Celta Vigo vs Shakhtar Donetsk Match Betting Prediction
Celta is probably a slight favorite in this game. They are playing at home and despite the weaker form, they should come on top in the forthcoming match. We predict that both teams will score at least one goal in the forthcoming match.
