Celta Vigo Betting News
Celta Vigo meanwhile go into Sunday’s clash on the back of a massively impressive 4-3 victory at home to FC Barcelona. Former Liverpool flop Iago Aspas shone as the Galician outfit stunned the La Liga champions at Balaidos.
Despite the encouraging result and performance for Celta they remain 10th in the table, having lost twice and drawn once in their last six La Liga clashes. Celta boss Eduardo Berizzo will be without Pablo Hernandez who is out due to injury, which could see Iago Aspas play in a slightly deeper role in behind Giuseppe Rossi, as back-up striker John Guidetti is sidelined with an ankle problem.
Elsewhere, Jonny and Hugo Mallo are expected to start at full-back, which would see summer signing Facundo Roncaglia take a rare seat on the bench.
Villarreal CF vs Celta Vigo Match Prediction
Sunday’s clash promises to be a meeting of two high quality teams in good form. While neither side may not be apart of the La Liga elite, they both play attacking football and often don positions which defy their meagre wealth.
Goals can be expected in this clash, but to call a result for either side is a step too far for anyone looking at this objectively.
