La Liga: Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Live
Barcelona is gearing up for an exciting clash against Celta Vigo in La Liga, with both teams having had varying starts to the season. The match is set to take place on Saturday evening (4:30 GMT) as part of La Liga’s ongoing campaign.
Barcelona, under the management of Xavi Hernandez, has enjoyed an impressive start to the season, securing 13 points from their first five games. This achievement has placed them in the second position on the league table, trailing just two points behind the leaders, Real Madrid. The Catalan giants have shown their prowess by winning their last five matches in all competitions. In their most recent outings, they thrashed Real Betis 5-0 in La Liga and replicated the same scoreline in the Champions League against Royal Antwerp.
Notable arrivals on deadline day, including Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo, have bolstered Barcelona’s squad and added depth to the team. Their presence has certainly strengthened the squad for the challenges that lie ahead. Barcelona will be without Pedri due to a thigh injury, but Ronald Araujo is back in the squad after recovering from a hamstring issue. The team’s recent performances have showcased their attacking prowess, with players like Felix making a significant impact.
On the other hand, Celta Vigo has had a less impressive start to the season, collecting only four points from their opening five matches. They currently sit in the 16th position on the league table. Celta struggled initially, securing just one point from their first three games and suffering losses to Osasuna and Real Madrid. However, they managed to secure a victory against Almeria before the international break. Celta Vigo’s main forward, Iago Aspas, is yet to find the back of the net in the current season.
Barcelona has had ups and downs in their encounters with Celta Vigo. In their last five games, Celta Vigo and Barcelona have both clinched 2 wins. Celta have claimed a win both home and away; all ended with the same scoreline, 2-1.
Given Barcelona’s strong form and Celta Vigo’s struggles, Barcelona is favored to win this encounter. The match promises to be an exciting one with at least a 2-goal margin.
