La Liga: Celta Vigo vs. ValenciaPublished November 7, 2015 by Florin P
Celta Vigo braces for another top team coming to town (3:00 p.m UK Time)
Playing against Celta Vigo proved to be a nightmare for many Spanish teams, including some sitting at the top of the food chain. Real Madrid managed to defeat them on the road, just a couple of weeks after Barcelona failed miserably and conceded four goals. It is now Valencia’s time to try and win in Vigo, but they’ve got a busy midweek that includes a Champions League fixture in Belgium.
Valencia Fighting a War on Two Fronts
The visitors need to regain their strength after facing Gent on Wednesday and hope that the list of injured players will be limited to three footballers. Valencia has used the same starting formation throughout October and results were generally positive, with the team winning three times at home.
Atletico Madrid was the only team to defeat them over the span, but this is a top class squad so manager Santo has no reason to be disgruntled. His major concern is that the first goalkeeper is still injured, but luckily for him and Valencia the backup goalie rose to the occasion and managed to keep two clean sheets
Celta Vigo Still Pushing Its Luck
The home side managed to stay at the top of the Primera Division tables by scoring goals in the final minutes of the games. Once again they rebounded after allowing two goals in the first half and eventually emerged victorious against Real Sociedad last Saturday.
With no players injured or suspended, it is no surprise that Celta Vigo is credited with the first chance by bookies including Bet365. Savvy punters will not hesitate to back the underdog in this fixture, but risk-averse players will be better off taking even odds offered on a double chance wager on Valencia. They have a better head to head record and the fact that they can settle for one point makes this bet tempting.
