Our football match prediction:
Celta Vigo will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Atletico Madrid and Malaga when they face out-of-sorts Athletic Bilbao at their Estadio de Balaidos. The two teams are level on points ahead of Sunday’s football match and a close encounter appears on the cards. Celta Vigo are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Athletic and we predict that the hosts will find the net on Matchday 11. The Lions were not capable of matching star-studded Barcelona at the weekend, with the team suffering a 2-0 loss to Leo Messi and Co. at their San Mames and, as a result, the Basque club dropped to 14th place in the standings. Anyhow, seeing that Athletic Bilbao emerged triumphant in each of their last five meetings with Celta Vigo in La Liga, we believe that the visitors are going to grab something from the match.
Highligted Player (Guidetti):
John Guidetti is one of Sweden’s most talented forwards and the man tipped to replace superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the national team. The highly rated footballer left Brommapojkarna soon after being promoted to the first team set-up, joining Premier League giants Manchester City. And while he never got a chance to shine at Etihad Stadium, Guidetti proved a great deal of potential during loan spells with Feyenoord and Celtic, and eventually earned a permanent contract with La Liga high flyers Celta Vigo. The talented striker has yet to nail down a regular starting berth at Balaidos, but he has been using the time spent on the pitch wisely, and continued his goalscoring form in Spain’s top flight. Playing alongside Nolito and Iago Aspas at club level as well as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Berg on international stage is bound to further aid the player’s development, and many believe he will go on to become one of Sweden’s best ever strikers. Guidetti has so far only made a handful of appearances for Blagult, but that is bound to change in years to come.
Highlighted Team (Athletic Bilbao):
