The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Espanyol v Celta Vigo Predictions, 18 Sep 2017
Espanyol welcome the visit of North-west side Celta Vigo in a bid to avenge the 0-2 reverse in their corresponding game of last season, as the Celts enjoyed their first full set of points last time out when beating Alaves 1-0. Espanyol v Celta Vigo Predictions.
Match status: 2017/18 La Liga - Gameweek 4
Kick-off: Monday 18 Sep 2017, 08:00pm GMT
Venue: "RCDE Stadium" in Barcelona, Spain
Having previously conceded 5 goals over two opening games at the outset, Celta Vigo responded positively with narrowly putting aside Alaves; what's even important is that they were able to keep a first clean sheet following a flow of let-in goals early on - and they could react similarly in this one, valued at the odds of 5/2 with Bet365 for the visitors to keep their goal scoring-free.

The opening-day 1-1 draw against Sevilla - therefore a single point to the tally - is the only spoil Espanyol have been able to get over three games to date, following it up with losses to Leganes and Barcelona, leaving the Budgerigars bottom of the table and a negative -6 goal difference.

Teams' Possible Starting Lineups:

Espanyol: Diego López - Aarón Martín, David López, Mario Hermoso, Víctor Sánchez - Pablo Piatti, Javi Fuego, Sergi Darder, José Manuel Jurado - Leo Baptistao, Gerard Moreno (4-4-2 formation)

Celta Vigo: Sergio Álvarez - Hugo Mallo, Gustavo Cabral, Andreu Fontàs, Jonny - Jozabed Sánchez, Stanislav Lobotka, Daniel Wass - Iago Aspas, Maxi Gómez, Pione Sisto (4-3-3 formation)

Espanyol: Óscar Duarte, Javi López.

Celta Vigo: Doubful: Nemanja Radoja, John Guidetti.

Conclusion and Match Preview:

I expect a roughly even game with each side creating a minimum of scoring chances going forward, making the midfield and back lines a top priority. With that said, it's rather difficult to see Espanyol make it out without letting in; hence we're backing Celta Vigo to break the seal of the opposition's goal once at least and hold it up until the final whistle.
