Celta Vigo and Levante meet Saturday in La Liga soccer action at Estadio Balaídos.
Celta Vigo enters this match with an overall record of 12-15-10, a 7-8-3 record at home and a 5-12-2 record on the road. Celta Vigo is 0-3-3 in its last six matches and hasn’t won a match since early April against Sevilla. With a chance to separate itself from the middle of the pack with a much needed victory, Celta Vigo must find a way to put together a complete performance and leave this match with three points. Of course, easier said than done considering the Celtics have won just two games since March. Iago Aspas leads Celta Vigo with 20 goals, Maxi Gomez has 15 goals and Sisto has five goals.
Levante enters this match with an overall record of 11-13-13, a 7-6-6 record at home and a 4-7-7 record on the road. Levante is one of the hotter teams in the league, winning five straight matches and coming off an impressive 5-4 win over Barcelona. You almost want to ask where this effort was earlier in the season, but you’ll certainly take it if you’re a fan of this club. Levante has scored a combined 10 goals in its last three matches and has won each of its last six matches when scoring at least one goal. Levante has simply caught fire the last few weeks. Enis Bardhi leads Levante with nine goals, Morales also has nine goals and Boateng has six goals.
Celta Vigo has won each of the last five meetings against Levante, which includes a 1-0 shutout when they met in January. Levante has been shutout in three of the last five meetings against Levante. Three of the five matches shave produced at least three combined goals.
We know the history between these two clubs, and it likely has to do a lot with these odds. But if you’re looking for a value bet, how can you turn down Levante and the plus money to win this match? Levante has won five straight and just lit Barcelona on fire for five goals. This is a confident club at the moment and should be getting a little more respect than this. So, give me the upset based on the value.
