Espanyol vs Celta Vigo Prediction & Betting tips
An interesting match in this day of Monday is the one that will dispute Espanyol and Celta for a new date of the Santander League.
To my understanding, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, as the two teams can alternate the ball and the chances of goal. However, if we consider the local factor and the best balance between the lines of the “parakeets”, we advise you to play a few euros to your simple triumph. Remember that the Galicians do not defend well, costing them much more when acting far from home.
Take into account that Espanyol arrives beaten to this duel after losing 5-0 the Catalan derby against Barcelona in the Nou Camp. Despite this, the team left a good image in the offensive, as it generated several chances of goal and 7 corners in total (something difficult to achieve at this stage). For these days, it has 1 point in the general table, being vital to cut this negative streak.
On the other hand do not forget that the picture “parakeet” already played a local game in this championship, which was negative for his aspirations to lose it unexpectedly against the combative but limited Leganés (1-2). It is expected that the boys of Quique Sánchez Flores can handle the process and be more effective in the face of the goal.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Celta defeated Alavés 1-0 at Balaídos, cutting the 2-game losing streak they had added. Previously he had lost 2-3 against Real Sociedad and 2-1 against Betis, proving to be an intense and vertical oncena at certain moments. Its objective is to be more balanced between lines under the command of Unzué.
To finish we tell you that the Galicians have played a game as a visitor so far, their goal being to improve their defensive work in this condition. Coming from losing 2-1 to the “verdiblancos” Benito Villamarín, after winning partially 0-1.
After all this I play for a victory of the local box because of the following reasons: First because Espanyol is an attractive team to see, beyond the hard blow that meant losing 5-0 to Barcelona the city derby. Just review the situations and corners that generated to corroborate this statement. Second because the “parakeet” box will try to handle the ball more, trying to take advantage of the local factor. The ideal is to be effective in his arrivals so that he does not happen to happen to him a few weeks ago when he lost unexpectedly against Leganés (0-1). And third because Celta, so it is an offensive by nature, often has mismatches at the time of scoring. Given this reality and thus the process is open and intense, we believe that the Catalans can win by a goal difference as Betis did before the Galician (victory 2-1 in Benito Villamarín).
