Celta Vigo vs Eibar – Primera Division.
Estadio de Balaidos, Vigo – 20 February, 21:05.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Celta Vigo fans are probably feeling very disappointed with latest form and results of their squad. The squad gave them big hope after first 19 matches to watch some European football on Balaidos next season, but Celta Vigo entered awful black series of results which is still active. They will be hosting team Eibar this Saturday and potential victory could bring them back to the race for Europa League spot. Eibar are far from being naive team, despite the fact they had no high expectations for this season. Home side are favorites to grab three points with 1/1 odds, while Eibar are big underdogs with 14/5. First duel between them on Estadio de Ipurua ended in very calm and slow manner with final score 1 – 1.
Celta Vigo were in the spotlight last week but unfortunately not because of good performance or results. They will be the ones who conceded „that penalty goal“ against Barcelona and lost the match 6 – 1. They are currently on 8th position with 35 points, but still only 5 behind Sevilla. They have managed to collect only 2 out of possible 15 points in last 5 Primera Division matches, which is the main reason for their downfall. Nolito was the one who carried Celta in 2015, but that role got somehow transferred to J.Guidetti in 2016.
To me, Eibar are the most pleasant surprise in Spain Primera Division this year. Recently they were unlucky with the schedule to have both Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid against them in just 7 days time frame. Both games were away matches for them, where they suffered 2 losses and conceded 8 goals. Borja Baston, Eibar’s striker, has been the main topic of Spanish newspapers for weeks. So far he scored 16 goals in 22 games.
