Celta – Barcelona, La Liga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR CELTA - BARCELONA
There is hardly a better time than this Celta to meet Barcelona. In the next match they will be visiting Bilbao and to host Vallecano, who are likely to be relegated by that time, but it is important for Celta to make the most of their match against Barcelona. They are favorites to bookmakers and this is logical. Hosts are also playing for their lives in the league, and Barca will come out with reserves.
The Catalans are very happy after having unreasonably obtained such a good result in the Champions League against Liverpool and just showed their enormous efficiency and class in attack and at the same time were lucky enough not to concede a goal from the Reds who couldn’t score after bunch of attempts. Valverde is once again proving serious tactical literacy, and will now do his best to prevent any breakthroughs in last year’s Roma turn, when Barca goes out at Anfield.
We think Celta will certainly score a goal, because Barcelona’s defense will not be at such a high level. The very formation of the team will be quite different. Still, Celta, anyway, is strong in attack and will be looking for victory. We also expect the Catalonians to score, because the team has too much talent and class even on the bench and these players are just waiting for a moment to prove themselves. And Celta allows easy mistakes from which good teams can benefit. Prediction – BTTS at 1.58.
