Celta Vigo vs Villarreal PredictionFollowing the extended COVID-19 break, the Spanish La Liga is finally back with a bang. Relegation-threatened Celta Vigo will be returning to football action on Saturday evening when they take on Champions League hopeful Villarreal at the Balaidos Stadium.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 28
Kick-off:
Venue: Estadio de Balaídos (Vigo)
Having risen to become a force to reckon with in recent years, Celta Vigo have now returned to the bottom of Spanish football, flirting with relegation with more than half of the season gone. Sitting 17th on the standings, they have managed a measly 26 points from 27 games.

With only a single point separating the Celtics from the drop-zone, they cannot afford any slip-ups over the coming weeks to stand any chances of surviving top-flight football. They will be required to keep churning out positive results on a regular to steer clear of the dreaded relegation area.

Meanwhile, Villarreal are eyeing a spot amongst the elite top-four mix before the season curtains draw close. The Yellow Submarines have been impressive this campaign and have an 8th spot on the standings to show for their brilliance.

Favorites for this fixture, the visitors will be looking to see off this weak Celta Vigo side to clinch maximum points to continue their push for a Champions League place finish.

Celta Vigo vs Villarreal Team News

Prior to the break, Celta Vigo were last seen in action against high-flying Getafe as they looked to stage an unlikely upset in unfamiliar territory. Headed into the game as underdogs, the Celtics set out to frustrate their foe with some impressive defending on display.

A drab game it was at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, the home side failed to find a route through Celta’s stubborn defense. Ultimately, the game ended goalless both sides forced home with a single point in the bag. 

Villarreal, on the other hand, were left astounded by a spirited Leganes side, the latter squeezing out a narrow 2-1 away win to condemn the Yellow Submarines to a surprise defeat. Taking the lead just inside five minutes, Villarreal looked set for a routine win in front of the home crowd.

However, their relegation-threatened opposition rose to the occasion, snatching a narrow win right from the jaws of defeat. A second-half brace from Oscar Rodriguez was enough to complete an impressive comeback for Leganes as they clinched an unexpected win to continue their survival battle.

Celta Vigo had been on a brilliant run of form before the break in March, grabbing some much-needed points to escape the relegation zone. Meanwhile, Villarreal were on a terrible run of form with three losses on the bounce.

The home side are unbeaten in nine of their previous ten games across all competitions and have remained so in their last five league games. Celta Vigo are also sporting a supreme home record having failed to admit defeat in their previous six games on this ground. Also, they are on a two-game winning run at this venue.

Despite enjoying a stupendous start to the campaign, affairs have since turned south for Villarreal with four losses from their preceding six games. Also, they are on a humiliating three-game losing streak across all competitions.
