Originally tipped relegation candidates, Celta Vigo have left the media open-mouthed with the early-season displays. They have been on a rollercoaster ride, and are yet to suffer defeat in their three La Liga games so far.

Meanwhile, Barcelona began their season with a bang, registering an emphatic 4-0 victory over tricky side Villarreal. If they manage to harness the panache that saw them hammer the Yellow Submarine here, the Blaugrana should comfortably carry the day.

Celta Vigo vs Barcelona Team News

Last season was a total disaster for Celta Vigo and everyone associated with the club. With the trauma they experienced, the Celtics will be looking to put those woes behind them quickly, as they attempt to set the record straight.

Hanging by a loose thread, Celta Vigo were very lucky to have escaped relegation from the Spanish La Liga. Having garnered a measly 37 points from 38 games, Junyent’s men were only a point clear of 18th-placed Leganes.

Their survival story was something of a miracle. At a point in the season, the Celtics looked destined for the drop. However, a late rally, helped by the exploits of the experienced Iago Aspas, propelled Junyent’s men out of the relegation places.

Scheduled to take on Real Valladolid on the last matchday, Celta Vigo were deemed slight favorites for the win. Their superior form heading to the Estadio Jose Zorrilla tipped the scales slightly in their favor.

Outplayed by their tricky opposition, the Sky Blues struggled to get into their rhythm. Managing just a single shot-on-target, Aspas managed to turn that effort into the net. A late penalty from Valladolid’s Guardiola ensured both sides shared the spoils at fulltime.

However, Celta’s 100% unbeaten start to the campaign seems to be under serious threat now. Taking on title-challengers Barcelona, the Celtics will have their work cut-out to manage a favorable result. Barca are currently in tip-top form.

Following their Joan Gamper Cup triumph earlier in the month, the Blaugrana began their league campaign with a commanding 4-0 victory over Villarreal. Despite talks of some crisis at the club, they looked in great shape on Sunday night.

Ansu Fati ran the show, grabbing the headlines with a brace on the board. The young Spaniard was hacked down in the box just before half-time, winning a penalty kick for his side – one Lionel Messi calmly slotted home.

Barcelona were in free-flowing attacking form on the night, bossing Villarreal in every single department of the pitch. Perhaps, it was too early to have written Barca off prior to the start of the season. Early signs suggest they might be in for a shout at La Liga glory.

Celta vs Barcelona Predictions

Celta Vigo have proven to be a torn in the flesh for the Blaugrana, with the latter sporting a horrific record at the Balaidos. Only at the Santoaho Bernabeu have Barcelona lost more games this century. This is an important stat to note here.

The hosts are in brilliant form, and have begun the season amazingly. But Barca were magnificent in their last game, winning their last three away games on the bounce. Hence, count on the visitors to edge this one out narrowly.
