Celta Vigo vs. Sevilla Match Analysis and Prediction

The top flight Spanish Primera Division (La Liga) gets to its match day 22 this weekend. Among the fixtures scheduled for Saturday the 2nd February 2019 is a match between the 18th placed Celta Vigo vs. fourth placed Sevilla. The match will start at 19.45GMT at Celta Vigo’s Balaidos stadium. The match will be interesting to watch owing to the two team’s positions in the La Liga table standings and what each is fighting for. Nevertheless, Sevilla is expected to emerge victorious by the end of the action.

By the look of things Celta Vigo is having it rough during this season. With 21 matches so far, it has only collected 21 points out of the possible 63. At number 18, its presence in the La Liga next season hangs on the balance. In their last 8 matches, they have won only one match lost 6 and drawn once. They have been on a losing streak of late having lost 5 matches in a row. Can this weekend’s fixture turn things to their favor? 90 minutes will determine the same.

Sevilla, on the other hand, is still are contenders for the silverware. At number despite the 13 points difference from the La Liga leaders, Barcelona, anything is possible in football although it is worthless banking on that. Their main aim is to finish among the top four for a chance to play in the Championship League next season. Having won with thunder and terror with a 5-0 victory over Levante, they feel they are at the top of their form and this fixture wouldn’t come at a better time for them than now.

It is no doubt that Sevilla is doing far much better than Celta Vigo. Celta Vigo’s winning drought does not seem to end soon; not against Sevilla. However, the match is not going to be a walkover for Sevilla considering the fact Celta Vigo is working toward entangling themselves from the relegation zone. Their victory will come with lots of sweat.
