Our match prediction:
Thanks to a 3-2 win over Eibar, Celta Vigo put an end to their five-game winless run in all competitions and it has to be noted that the match was marked by Nolito’s return. The team’s key player has overcome his long-term injury and no doubt the former Barcelona man will help the Sky Blues improve their game in the remainder of the season. The Galician outfit occupy sixth place in the La Liga standings and they are eyeing a place in European competitions. Seeing that los Azulones have been completely out of form of late, there is every chance the visitors will pick up all three points from Saturday’s clash. The capital club are on a five-game losing run in La Liga and you should have in mind that they were totally outclassed by relegation strugglers Levante at the weekend. This one should not be tough to predict and we are tempted to put our 50 cents on the away team.
