Celta Vigo vs Levante Prediction & Tips
Located in the middle of the table, Celta de Vigo comes from cutting a streak of four games without winning at home (E2, P2) in LaLiga Santander (LL), a fair reward for a fairly regular team in offensive and who has seen the door in six of his last seven league games in Balaídos. The celestial problems are on the other side of the pitch: just three unbeaten goals in their previous 19 LL games.
Celta have opened the scoring in eight of their last 15 LL games, letting victory slip in half of those eight games (G4, E2, P2). It is a record that contrasts sharply with the one signed in the six LL games prior to that series in which the Vigo team scored the opening goal (G5, E1).
Levante will overtake Celta in the table if they win at Balaídos, but the Granotas visit the Olívica city going through a three-game losing streak and having lost five of their last six LL games (G1, P5). Opening the scoring could be the key to victory for the Valencian team, who have been defeated in four of the last six league games in which they have not been favorites (G1, E1, P4): the first scorer has won each of Levante’s eight previous LL games, seven times leaving a clean sheet and six coming into halftime with an advantage.
The clash between these teams in the first round (1-1) ended a series of 13 consecutive matches between the two without a draw (Levante: G4, P9). In their recent duels, goals have not been lacking: both teams have seen the door in their last six direct confrontations, with a high average of 4.17 goals per game in them. That said, Levante have not seen a goal in three of their four previous league outings (G1, P3).
Players to watch: Top scorers for their teams in LL 2020-21, both Iago Aspas (CEL, 13 goals) and Roger Martí (LEV, 11 goals) have scored in two of the last three meetings between these clubs, opening the scoring one time each.
Highlight: The team as favorites have not lost any of Celta’s 16 previous LL games at home (W13, E3).
