In a sentence: With both teams having something to play for going into this fixture, this one could be a feisty one if Celta want to keep up their push for Europe and if Las Palmas want to escape relegation.

Last time: Celta won a thrilling 5-2 clash away at Las Palmas earlier in the season, almost setting a marker down for each sides seasons would play out.

This time: Celta to win is at 4/9, a draw is 18/5 and a Las Palmas victory is 11/2.

You might remember: In the fixture earlier in the season, Celta raced into a 5-0 lead before two late goals from Loic Remy and Vitolo made the scoreline a bit more respectable for the home side.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Celta Vigo haven’t lost at Balaidos since before Christmas

With Celta Vigo so close to the Europa League places in La Liga and Las Palmas desperate to get away from the relegation zone, we could be in for a nervy night and a good game between two teams who need three points.

Celta come into this one as favourites, and a 2-0 win is priced at 15/2 which could be a smart bet given the fact that Las Palmas have only won once in their last six games. That being said, Las Palmas will be full of confidence prior to kick off after somehow coming from behind to hold Barcelona to a 1-1 draw and having a huge impact on both the relegation and title race. A repeat of that 1-1 draw is at 17/2 but if you think Las Palmas can grab three vital points, a 2-1 win is priced at 18/1.

As for goal scorers, this is where it could be worth putting some money into. Former Liverpool striker Iago Aspas has been sensational for Celta over the past few season and is 10/3 to score first and 17/20 to score at any time. Staying with former Premier League players, on-loan West Ham striker Jonathan Calleri is 7/1 to follow up his penalty against Barcelona by scoring first and is 19/10 to score at any time.

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

A 2-1 Celta win with Iago Aspas scoring first is at 40/1 which is a good bet considering the recent run of form.

2

We fancy:

A 3-1 Celta win with former Borussia Dortmund midfielder Emre Mor to score first is at 66/1.

3

It’s a long shot, but:

Las Palmas may not be expecting to win this fixture so a 4-0 win with former Alberto Aquilani to score at any time is priced at 500/1.
