Reason For Villarreal vs Celta Vigo Betting Tips

Villarreal were moving smoothly into contention to challenge for the European qualification spots towards the end of October, but a run of one draw and two defeats from their last three games has seen El Submarino Amarillo drop back down to 11th. Javier Calleja’s men desperately need a win this weekend to get back on track and we fancy them to deliver the goods against a Celestes side who are without a win in 18 away La Liga matches.

Indeed, you have to go back to 8th December 2018 for Celta’s last success on the road, which ironically came here at La Ceramica. Vigo secured a thrilling 2-3 triumph and they repeated that scoreline in March’s return fixture at Balaidos to notch an impressive league double over El Submarino Amarillo.

That achievement was one of very few bright sparks for Celta last term as they slumped to a 17th placed finish and they are not faring any better this time around. Celestes have lost their last five La Liga matches including a 4-1 beating at Barcelona last time out and sit 18th in the league, four points adrift of 17th placed Real Betis.

Whilst the international break will have given new boss Oscar Garcia time to work with his squad and last season’s aforementioned victory at La Ceramica may rekindle good memories, Celestes simply can’t be fancied to take anything from this game based on their overall form an their dreadful run of six draws and 12 defeats from their last 18 La Liga matches outside of Galicia.

Villarreal boss Javier Calleja will be deeply frustrated by his team’s recent away losses against 15th placed Eibar (2-1) and 16th placed Mallorca (3-1) which took his side’s record on the road this term to two wins and five defeats from seven, and the Valencian outfit must improve on their travels if they are to stay in the hunt for European qualification this season.

Nonetheless, Villarreal remain extremely reliable at home, where they have won three and drawn three from six outings this term. They may have expected more than a 0-0 stalemate against Athletic Bilbao two starts ago, but that result was no disgrace considering how defensively strong Los Leones are.

Prior to that result, Villarreal posted three consecutive wins on their own turf against Valladolid (2-0), Real Betis (5-1) and Alaves (4-1), and a repeat of those performances here should see them gain revenge for their reversals against Celestes in 2018/19.

So we’re siding with the hosts to clinch an important three points with a fare bit in hand this Sunday afternoon and we’re predicting a 3-1 scoreline.

Villarreal have averaged just shy of three goals per game at La Ceramica this term and come up against a Celta defence that have shipped ten goals in their four recent away defeats. However, the hosts have kept just two clean sheets from six at home whilst Celta have netted in their last two away, so the visitors can at least bag a consolation.
