Competition: La Liga

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 3/4 @ BetUS

In what could prove to be an enjoyable La Liga affair from the Baladios on Tuesday evening, Celta Vigo will welcome Girona to Galicia.

Starting with the hosts, putting in another downbeat display over the weekend as they suffered a 2-1 loss away at Athletic Bilbao, it is fair to say that Celta Vigo are certainly limping their way over the finish line. With some in Carlos Carvalhal’s camp still looking over their shoulder at a potential late relegation scrap, the one-time Sheffield Wednesday boss does find some growing pressure on his shoulders. Knowing that they best that they can do is claim another bottom-half finish this season, the Sky Blues have lost each of their last four straight La Liga appearances. Signing off April with a 3-1 drumming at the hands of Villarreal, the Galicia-based outfit have also recorded just a single victory from any of their previous nine domestic outings – a run that stems back to a 3-1 victory away at Espanyol on March 18th. Likewise, really enduring a defensive nightmare and shipping eight strikes on their four-match losing run, it should also be noted that Celta Vigo have mustered just a single La Liga clean sheet 10 weeks.

As for the visitors, after watching their eye-catching flurry come to an abrupt end over the weekend, Girona will be hoping to prove that was nothing more than a minor blip. Eventually suffering an action-packed 2-1 defeat at home against Villarreal, that is just the second domestic loss that Michel’s men have suffered from any of their previous 10 appearances – a run that stems all the way back to March 13th. With their La Liga flurry highlighted by a famous 4-2 victory against Spanish icons Real Madrid on April 25th, the Catalonia-based outfit could be smelling the chance to make another statement here. Sat firmly in pole position to secure a top-half finish in 2023, Girona have also gained a recent reputation for their lively outcomes. In fact, including a 2-2 draw away at Real Sociedad earlier in the month, Tuesday’s guests have seen four of their last five La Liga showdowns finish with both teams finding the net. In a contest that could see chances come thick and fast, we are expecting a similar outcome here.

Bet: Both teams to score at Celta Vigo vs Girona 3/4 for Tuesday’s La Liga battle @ BetUS
