Betting Tips & Predictions

Celta Vigo entertain a Sevilla side at the Balaidos who almost upset the odds twice in the last week against Barcelona and Bayern Munich

Neither side have been producing the most consistent form of late and with just six points separating them in the table it makes La Liga predictions for this game a little more complex.

Celta Vigo have been enjoying home comforts as of late and are now undefeated in their last six La Liga matches at the Balaidos. Celticos will look towards this home form to help return them to winning ways after going three without a victory. You will get 11/10 for including a home win in your football predictions, and Celta will hope to take advantage of a visiting team that may have the Champions League on their mind.

Sevilla come into this off the back of a week where they nearly upset many fans’ football score predictions. Last weekend saw them let a two-goal lead slip against leaders Barcelona before going on to lose a lead in their Champions League tie against Bayern Munich. Los Rojiblancos will be desperate to finish in the Europa League spots and can ill afford a loss on Saturday.

The away side will visit Vigo in the knowledge they are undefeated in their last six meetings against their hosts. If you want to include a Sevilla win in your La Liga predictions, they are 23/10 for the points.

Celta Vigo have drawn five out of their 14 home games this campaign, while Sevilla are yet to register a draw away from home this season. It is 5/2 for a draw.

Iago Aspas has 16 goals in La Liga so far and is favourite to score first here, with the former Liverpool striker at 7/2. Wissam Ben Yedder and Luis Muriel are best placed to score first for Sevilla, and they are 11/2 and 6/1 to break the deadlock.

It’s a long shot, but:

You can never be sure which Sevilla will turn up and including them in your football prediction is always risky, but they have a good record against their opposition. The team from Andalusia have scored in each of their last four visits to Vigo and won 3-0 at the Balaidos last season. It is 33/1 for a repeat of that score from last term.
