Celta de Vigo form and stats

Celta haven't scored a league goal since they found the net 225 minutes ago. I. Aspas scored that one. Defensively the home team are doing well, with their goalkeeper Ivan Villar Martinez not having conceded a league goal in 218 minutes.

The home team returns to Estadio de Balaídos after being equal after 90 minutes with Eibar (placed 10th) on their last time out; the La Liga game ended 0-0. Before that game, the home loss against Levante with the scoreline 2-3.

This is expected to be a close game, with Celta de Vigo perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Celta de Vigo as a small favourite), we find eleven games. Celta de Vigo has won four of these, drawn two and lost five.

Last season, Celta de Vigo's league statistics were 7 wins, 16 draws and 15 losses, resulting in a 17th position in the La Liga. Over these 38 matches they scored 37 goals and conceded 49. Playing at home last season Celta de Vigo managed 5-8-6 (win-draw-lost) with 22 goals and 20 conceded.

Valencia form and stats

Valencia won their last game, 4-2 versus Levante played at home. Before that, Valencia secured a home win against Espanyol with the score 1-0.

As you can tell from the result, the match against Levante was as crazy as a clown in a village circus. Great fun for the neutral supporter with 6 goals, will the fun continue today? Goalkeeper Jaume Doménech was absolutely vital in the Valencia victory against Levante, making six saves.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Valencia playing away and similar expectations, we found nine relevant matches. Results were two Valencia wins, four draws and three defeats.

Let's have a look at how Valencia performed last season in the La Liga: They landed a 9th position in the league table after playing out 14 victories, 11 draws and 13 defeats. In total they scored 46 and conceded 53 goals in these matches. The numbers for away games only are: Won 3 - drew 4 and lost 12 with 17/37 goals scored/conceded.
