After a six-week break, Celta Vigo and Sevilla will meet on Friday at the Estadio Municipal de Balados to begin their La Liga campaigns. The league campaigns of both teams have begun slowly. Surprisingly, Sevilla is in 18th place in the league standings with 11 points, while the hosts are in 17th place with 12 points.
The hosts have not won in their last seven league games and drew 0-0 with Rayo Vallecano last time out. In their last five league games, Sevilla has lost. Ivan Rakitic and Tanguy Nianzou were shipped off in their last game against Genuine Sociedad as the game finished in a 2-1 loss, with Rafa Mir scoring their main objective.
During the international break, Celta Vigo and Sevilla won their first- and second-round Copa del Rey matches. In these games, Sevilla scored five times without conceding while the hosts scored nine goals and only gave up one goal.
This season, Os Celestes have won two of their three La Liga games and scored at least one goal in each of their seven home games. They may struggle here after losing their previous two home games against their southern rivals.
Rojiblancos have likewise scored somewhere around one objective in their movements and strangely, they have gotten both of their dominates in their away matches this term. As the two groups sharp searched in their Copa del Rey games last week, we anticipate that the two groups should play out a draw.
Prediction: Celta Vigo 2-2 Sevilla
In all competitions, the two teams have met 106 times, with the first meeting occurring in 1929. With 49 victories to their name, Sevilla has a slightly better record in these meetings. There have been 39 victories and 18 draws for the hosts.
The match that took place on Friday last season ended in a 1-0 victory for the visitor’s thanks to a goal from Rafa Mir. The visitors have won all four of their previous encounters with the hosts. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in four of the teams’ last five meetings.
With the exception of Elche, which is in last place and has lost 14 league games, Sevilla has the fewest wins among La Liga teams with (2) this season. Sevilla has not fared much better, losing seven of their 14 league games this season, making them the only team in the league other than last-place Elche (10).
