Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Predictions

A Clash of Titans or a One-Sided Affair?

Key Stats
– Barcelona’s recent goal fest: 10 goals in the last two matches.
– Celta’s Aspas: Top player but goalless this season.
– Barcelona’s defence: 3 clean sheets in five league outings.

Barcelona’s trajectory under the guidance of Xavi is nothing short of impressive. Seated comfortably at the second spot with 13 points, just a mere two points adrift from the pinnacle which Real Madrid holds, Barca have been a force to reckon with. A rather tepid start against Getafe couldn’t hold them back as they launched into a winning streak, dismantling the likes of Cadiz, Villarreal, Osasuna, and Real Betis with finesse.

A recent demolition of Real Betis followed by an equal thrashing of Royal Antwerp in the Champions League has raised eyebrows and anticipation. Their forthcoming fixtures include challenges against Celta, Mallorca, and Sevilla before another European clash with Porto. Many wonder if a defeat is even on the horizon for the Catalan giants.

Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo, the newest additions to the squad, have seamlessly merged with the team ethos, fortifying a squad preparing for a gruelling season.

A look back at the previous season saw a mixed bag of results against Celta. Barcelona clinched a narrow win at Camp Nou but had to swallow a loss in the reverse fixture at Vigo.

The Celta Conundrum

On the other side, Celta Vigo’s current season resonates more with struggle than success. Hovering around the 16th spot with only four points, their initial matches have hardly been encouraging. Benitez’s troops have shown resilience at times, but consistency has eluded them.

Their only silver lining came with a victory against Almeria, but the subsequent defeat to Mallorca deflated their spirits. Scoring has been a glaring issue, with just four goals to their name this season. Surprisingly, their spearhead Iago Aspas hasn’t found the back of the net yet. A pivotal player, his form (or lack thereof) might be a defining element in the upcoming clash.

Team News & Lineups

Barcelona are set to miss their talisman Pedri, nursing a thigh injury. However, Araujo might just make the cut. The attacking front sees a potential tussle between Raphinha, Torres, and Yamal, with Felix, fresh off his brace against Antwerp, almost certain to start. Balde is set to hold the defence alongside other stalwarts.

Celta, relatively injury-free except for Cervi, might see Douvikas spearheading the attack. Despite a dry spell, Aspas is expected to play a pivotal role, supported by Bamba and de la Torre.

Key Stats & Predictions

Barcelona’s Prowess:

  • Unbeaten streak with four consecutive wins in the league.
  • Prolific scorers, having netted five goals in their last two matches.
  • Impressive average BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 7.19, with Pedri leading the board.

Celta’s Hurdles:

  • Three losses in five league games.
  • Struggling frontline with only four goals this season.
  • An average BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 6.86, with Aspas showing potential despite goal drought.


  1. Match Outcome: Given the form and statistics, Barcelona are poised to win. While an outright win for Barca might seem predictable, considering Celta’s inconsistency, a ‘Both Teams To Score’ scenario is plausible. Our justification hinges on the fact that Aspas, despite his current drought, can be unexpectedly lethal.
  2. Correct Score Prediction: Barcelona 3 – 1 Celta Vigo. Barcelona’s attacking prowess, combined with Celta’s occasional spark, leads us to this prediction.
  3. Goalscorer Prediction: While many eyes will be on Felix, given his recent form, Robert Lewandowski with 3 goals already might just be the man to find the net.
