Celta Vigo vs Deportivo Tips
Deportivo has recorded far more draws than any other team in the Spanish Primera Division, exactly half of the 30 games played. To put things into perspective, the three teams that come in second have only and the games undecided on 10 occasions. With most of the draws occurring on the road, they know exactly what needs to be done against Celta Vigo and won't hesitate to use a single striker.
Celta Vigo has a relentless offensive and quality strikers capable of sending a hail of balls towards the opposing net, therefore keeping goalkeepers under tremendous pressure. This is going to be their strategy this afternoon as well, so the match is very likely to turn into a one-sided affair. The hosts have their fair share of problems in the back line and they can only make them go unnoticed if they exercise pressure.
Whenever Celta Vigo plays against better opponents who don't mind the pressure and try to take the initiative, they don't fair to well. The humiliating defeat suffered at the hands of Real Madrid serves as a shining example and is likely to linger in the minds of players for many months to come.
Luckily for the host, they don't have to worry about Granada scoring a handful of goals, since the visitors are struggling on all fronts. Celta Vigo needs to win this match in order to consolidate his position and it also has a tiny chance of closing the gap separating it from Villarreal. The best case scenario is to play in the Champions League next season, but even a presence in Europa League would be an achievement.
- Celta Vigo has the better roaster, home pitch advantage and superior motivation to win this match.
- Deportivo is an expert at drawing games both at home and on the road, while winning few matches.
