Celta Vigo were the subject of mediocrity last season as they battled to retain their top-flight status. Embroiled in a relegation battle throughout the campaign, the Celtics managed to escape the drop by a hair’s breadth.

Also failing to hit their usual heights, Valencia endured a torrid time last term, working their asses off just to breach the top-half of the standings. With a new season kickstarted, Los Che will be gunning for a top-four challenge this time around.

Celta Vigo vs Valencia Team News

We can’t help but remember the time Celta Vigo rose to prominence in Spanish football. Between 2016 and 2018, the Celtics turned themselves into a huge force to reckon with, giving the top clubs a run for their money.

In fact, they began challenging for European football and even, the league title at times. However, a few years have gone by since then, and Celta Vigo have lost their standing amongst La Liga elite clubs. They are no longer a side to the taken seriously in the league.

With a horrendous return of 37 points from 38 games last season, Junyent’s charges finished 17th on the log, just a point clear of the relegation places. Considered strong candidates for relegation, Celta can count themselves very lucky to still be playing La Liga football this term.

Another season has now rolled on, and everything points in the direction of another troubling campaign for Celta Vigo. As usual, they will continue to be reliant on goal-loving striker Iago Aspas, who has been the backbone of the club for the last few years.

Aspas is a well-known clinical forward, registering a staggering 102 goals in 193 games for the Sky Blues since 2015. However, the Spaniard might struggle to find chances without the services of Rafinha and Fedor Smolov, both of whom left the club this summer.

Celta were held to a goalless draw against Eibar in their opening fixture, much to the dismay of the fans. Despite holding the numerical advantage, Junyent’s men struggled to find a route past the opposition’s defense.

Celta will be desperate for victory versus Valencia to begin their season as strong as possible. However, they will have their work cut-out against Los Che who are in fine form. Scheduled to take on Levante last weekend, Valencia made light work of the opposition.

Vallejo was the cream of the crop for the Bats, grabbing a brace to put Levante to the sword. Gabriel and Gomez also got in amongst the goals as Valencia bagged all three points to move to the summit of the standings.

Even though they have lost the likes of Rodrigo Moreno, Ferran Torres, Francis Coquelin and Dani Parejo this summer, head coach Javi Garcia still has a very talented squad at his disposal. Surely, Los Che should be right up there with the top guns at the end of the season.

Celta vs Valencia Predictions

Even though Celta Vigo are in shambles and cannot secure a win to save their lives, they are likely to put in a good shift this weekend. The home advantage should help them slightly.

Even so, the visitors should prove too strong for the Celtics. Expect Valencia to clinch maximum points, perhaps fortuitously, all fulltime.
