Celta Vigo is hosting Villarreal at Municipal de Balaidos in round 14 of the Spanish LaLiga. Celta is still struggling, they are without a win in their last 3 games, but they were able to get positive results in their last 2 games. Villarreal is mostly hot and cold this season, but they are now on a 2-game winning streak.

Celta is now in 15th place in the LaLiga standings with 12 points, 13 scored goals, and 17 conceded goals. In their last 2 games, Celta has scored 3 goals, and that was against Barcelona at home, but they have also conceded 3 goals against the same opponent. Celta was solid in that game with 52% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 83% of the correct passes. At halftime, Celta was losing 0-3, but with an excellent second half, Celta has tied the score in the 96th minute, and the final score was 3-3. Aspas is still the leading goalscorer for Celta with 5 goals, while Mina added 4 goals. As I’ve mentioned, Celta is struggling, but I hope that game against Barcelona will boost their confidence, and they will start playing better now.

Villarreal is struggling in La Liga, a lot, and they are in low 12th place with 15 points. In the Champions League, Villarreal is in a tough group, and surprisingly enough, they are in the first place of their group with 7 points. In LaLiga, Villarreal is not effective as they should be, and they have scored only 12 goals, so far, and for a team with as much talent, as Villarreal has, that is not enough. In their last game against Getafe at home, Villarreal was the dominant team with 67% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Villarreal scored first, in the 10th minute, and the result hasn’t changed again after that. Villarreal will be playing against Manchester United in the Champions League next week, and even though they are at the top of their group right now, that could all change after this game. Villarreal still has a few injuries, but they are a solid team, and they will be playing at home in that game.

Villarreal has been terrible on the road so far this season, and they are still without a win. Villarreal’s bad form in combination with their upcoming Champions League game next week, I think this could be a tough game for them. Celta is solid at home, and even though they are in bad form, they are the home team, and I will side with them.
