Celta de Vigo and Barcelona will face each other in La Liga this coming weekend. The match will be held at the Estadio Municipal de Balaídos and is scheduled to kick off at 3:15pm UK time on Saturday, November 6.

Celta de Vigo

Celta de Vigo finished eighth in the La Liga table last season and were expected to at least have a similarly successful campaign this time around. However, the Galician club are not having the best of times at the moment and are dangerously close to the relegation zone.

Eduardo Coudet’s side currently find themselves 14th in the La Liga table at the moment with 10 points from 11 matches. Celta are only two points above the relegation zone, but they could extend it with a win against Rayo Vallecano away from home in the league on Monday evening.

Team News:

Jose Fontan will miss the match due to a knee problem.

Barcelona

Barcelona are having a torrid season and have already sacked Ronald Koeman as their manager, with Xavi reportedly set to take over. The Catalan giants are as low as ninth in the La Liga table at the moment with 16 points from 11 matches, nine points behind leaders Real Sociedad and six points off the top four.

The Blaugrana suffered a 1-0 defeat to Rayo Vallecano away from home in La Liga last week following a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid in El Clasico. Then Barcelona played out a 1-1 draw with Alves at Camp Nou in the league this past weekend and will face Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

Team News:

Sergio Aguero could miss the match due to health concerns. Memphis Depay will lead the line.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Barcelona have scored 16 goals in 11 La Liga matches.
  • Barcelona have conceded 12 goals in 11 La Liga matches.
  • Celta de Vigo have scored 10 goals in 11 La Liga games.
  • Celta de Vigo have conceded 14 goals in 11 La Liga games.
  • Barcelona beat Celta de Vigo 3-0 away from home in October 2020.

Conclusion

Barcelona are struggling at the moment, but a change of manager could just give the team the impetus they need. A narrow win for the Blaugrana in this game is the most likely outcome.

Prediction: Barcelona to win 2-0

Best Odds: 9/1
