Espanyol vs Celta Vigo Match Preview
Celta Vigo are far from safe in the Primera Division relegation battle and their need for points could stand them in good stead away to Espanyol.
A trio of consecutive home wins have lifted Celta away from the drop zone, but they still have only three points to spare over 18th-placed Real Valladolid – who could join Huesca and Rayo Vallecano in making an immediate return to the Segunda Division.
The Sky Blues’ away form is a concern for their backers here, but they must fancy their chances of scoring at least one goal against an Espanyol side who have kept only a solitary clean sheet in their last 19 matches.
After a promising start to the campaign, Espanyol have settled into being a mid-table side although they still have an outside chance of qualifying for next season’s Europa League.
Ironically, their top scorer this term, Borja Iglesias, was signed from Celta Vigo last summer after making only a single appearance for their first team, building his reputation and sealing his move to Espanyol during a productive loan spell with Real Zaragoza.
Goals are expected to flow here because neither of these teams is reliable defensively and there could be some value in backing a high-scoring stalemate.
