Celta hosts the champion Barcelona
Celta hosts the champion Barcelona in a game from the 36th round of the Spanish La Liga. Let’s take a look at this fixture in the city of Vigo in our vip soccer bets.
Celta continue to be in a very delicate situation, just three rounds before the end of the season. The club is 15th in the league with 37 points, but only 2 points above the 18th Real Valladolid and the relegation zone. This means that Celta are still not safe from relegation and they still need to win some points in order to survive.
So far in the season Celta have a record of 9 wins, 10 draws and 16 losses. In their last five matches they lost only once – against Atletico Madrid, also winning twice and doing two draws. In their last game Fran Escriba’s boys visited Leganes and won a point with a 0-0 draw.
In the same Barcelona already celebrated another title. Los Cules guaranteed themselves the first place last weekend, beating Levante at home. Now they are uncatchable at the top of the league, having 9 points advantage in front of the 2nd Atletico Madrid.
Because of Barca’s games against Liverpool in the Champions League, the manager Ernesto Valverde will pick a very different line-up for the game in Vigo. He will give a rest to all of his starters and important players, giving a chance to his backup players and some of the young stars of the club. Players like Murillo, Todibo, Wague, Alena, Puig, Malcom and Boateng will get another chance to play, which increases Celta’s chances to win, of course.
In our vip soccer bets we can conclude that you must be very careful about betting on Barcelona against Celta. How we said, Los Cules will play with their “B” team here, so watch out.
