Celta Vigo vs Ath Bilbao Prediction & Betting tips
An interesting match in this day of Sunday is the one played by Celta and Athletic Bilbao for a new date of the Santander League.
Celta Vigo :
In my opinion, the Galician side leaves as a favorite due to the collective potential it has and above all because its rival is not reliable in defense when acting away from home. For this reason and knowing that the Unzué boys need to be more regular in Balaídos, we advise you to play a few euros to your simple win. At stake is to climb positions in the table and move away from the descent.
Take into account that Celta lost 2-1 to Málaga as a visitor at the Rosaleda, staying with 11 points in total (19 goals for and 16 against). The team has lost two matches in a row, confirming its irregularity in terms of results. His objective will be to take advantage of his offensive intensity to break this negative streak.
On the other hand do not forget that the Galician box has reaped several results in Balaídos, lacking greater balance when acting before his people. It comes from losing 2-3 to Real Sociedad, defeating Alaves 1-0, equaling 1-1 against Getafe, drawing 3-3 against Girona and losing 0-1 against Atlético de Madrid.
Ath Bilbao :
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Athletic Bilbao played against the Swedish Östersunds for the Europa League last Thursday (). In the Spanish championship, he lost 0-2 to Barcelona in the new San Mamés, staying with 11 points in the general table. He has won 2 consecutive losses, costing him to be regular between the lines and in terms of results.
And finally we tell you that the “Lions” have obtained negative results playing as visitors due to their constant defensive problems. They come to overcome 0-1 to Eibar, to fall 1-0 before Las Palmas, to tie 3-3 against Malaga after winning 1-3 in a partial way, to trip 3-2 against Valencia in Mestalla and to lose 1- 0 against Leganés. For the Europa League, they drew 0-0 against Hertha Berlin and 2-2 against the Swedish Östersunds.
After all said I play for a victory of the local box due to the following reasons: First because Celta is an intense and offensive eleven in this season, having to improve just being more regular in defensive matters. For this reason, it is expected that it will take its precautions before a dynamic group by nature. Second because the Galician side will look to recover from the defeat suffered against Atlético de Madrid in Balaídos and win again at home after several matches without being able to do so. And third because Athletic Bilbao is not reliable in defensive matters, being much weaker when acting away from home. Faced with this reality and knowing that there will be spaces to play, we believe that the Unzué boys can finally add a victory that allows them to climb positions in the general table.
