Celta Vigo – Barcelona : Preview & Prediction
Celta could not have hoped to take Barcelona at a better time than this one. Still shocked by their elimination from the Champions League, Messi & Co have still ensured the victory (2-1) ahead of Valencia, last weekend. Three points that allowed the Blaugranas to chain a 39th game without defeat in Liga: championship record! Assured of the title, the Catalans will probably rest their executives at Vigo on Tuesday, while the final of the King’s Cup – facing Sevilla – looms in just a few days. Ninth not far from the European top-6, the Celta, used to shine on his soil, will play to win. We can expect everything between Celta de Vigo always dangerous at home and Barça “bis” still very far from harmless …
The Galicians have just played seven games without the slightest defeat in the championship at Estadio Balaidos (4v-3n).
Celta held off Real (2-2) this season on home soil.
Celta Vigo had thrashed (4-0) Sevilla during his last outing on his homeland in the league.
Barcelonawill face Sevilla in the final of the King’s Cup four days later. Valverde will not take any chances with its usual owners …
Barcelona have only won one of their last five games away from Camp Nou in all competitions. The slouch is real.
Barcelona will play the final of the King’s Cup this weekend and will not align all its frames, especially as the title is assured. Although it probably did not need that to hang at least one point as it shines on its ground since the beginning of the season, the Celta can rejoice in the context more than favorable. The rating of 1N is much too beautiful to miss.
