Celta Vigo vs Barcelona Prediction and Betting Preview, 27 Jun 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-2
Having relinquished top-spot to arch-rivals Real Madrid, Barcelona have no choice but to keep grinding out positive results over the coming weeks. While at it, they will be hoping for a significant Los Blancos slip to usurp them to the summit of the standings.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 32
Kick-off:
Venue: Balaídos (Vigo)
Holding onto a massive lead over Madrid for large portions of the campaign, it has been really sad watching the Blaugrana slowly give up their advantage until they were finally dethroned. Now, the fate of the title is no longer in their hands as they will be hoping for a massive bottling for the Meringues.

Even with Argentinian maestro Lionel Messi in the line-up, Barca failed to find a route past Sevilla’s stubborn defense as they were forced to settle for a draw. That result ultimately cost them their place at the top of the log.

Meanwhile, Celta Vigo are slowly working their way up the standings and away from the relegation places. They will need all hands-on deck to steer further clear of the dreaded drop-zone. Though a huge asking, the club supporters will be hoping for a huge upset against Barcelona come Saturday evening.

Celta Vigo vs Barcelona Team News

Having been embroiled in a heated relegation battle few weeks ago, Celta Vigo have risen to the occasion, grabbing a couple of impressive results to stay away from the all relegation-related talks. However, they cannot let heads drop if they are to keep climbing up the standings.

Looking to continue their impressive run of form, Celta Vigo made their way to the Reale Arena to take on top-four hopefuls Real Sociedad. Never really given a chance against the Royal, Junyent’s charges turned in another performance of the highest quality.

In a fiercely-contested affair in Sen Sabastian, both sides failed to muster any real openings as the game went right down to the wire. The cagey game was finally brought into life when Iago Aspas fired his side ahead on the stroke of half-time to secure another important victory.

Following Real Madrid’s comfortable victory over Mallorca, the Blaugrana needed nothing but a win when they entertained Athletic Bilbao last time out. With the players heading into the game with pressure levels sky-high, they knew victory was mandatory here.

With Barcelona dominating proceedings for large portions of the game, Bilbao sought to frustrate their attacking efforts – a tactic that was executed to perfection. However, a powerful effort from Ivan Rakitic in the 71st minute ensured Barca headed home with all three points in the bag.

For this fixture, Barcelona are huge favorites for the win. Even though we have seen them struggle in recent games, barely scraping past oppositions, we cannot see past a win for the Blaugrana here. Looking to defend their league title, they cannot afford any slip-ups at this juncture.

The Sky Blues have been very impressive lately and will be looking to continue their rise on the standings. However, they will have to be at their best this Saturday to stand any chances against this outstanding opposition.

Celta vs Barcelona Predictions

However, the Blaugrana will have to tread with caution given Celta Vigo have been the better side in h2h encounters at this venue in recent years. Barcelona’s determination to return to the league summit should be enough to see them through to victory here. Expect a Barcelona win with no more than two goals for the winning side.
