Celta Vigo vs Granada Predictions and Betting Tips
The Abanca Balaidos is the stage for this highly-anticipated encounter in the LaLiga Santander as Celta Vigo look to follow up their maiden victory with another good performance as they host Granada on Monday. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Celta Vigo find themselves ahead on the head-to-head side of things with eight wins against their opponents who have just three wins in this same period. It is also to be noted that Celta Vigo hasn't lost in this fixture since the beginning of the 2020/2021 season- a run that has spanned across three games.
Two struggling sides lock horns
Celta Vigo's slow start to the season seems to have been thrown out the window as they picked up their maiden win of the season last Tuesday. Aspas and Brais Mendez made sure of this victory against Levante as Eduardo Coudet and his troops left Valencia the happier of both teams. This win catapulted Celta out of the bottom three and into 16th position.
Granada, on the flip side, are still in search of their first win of the 2021/2022 campaign having failed to win any of their first five games. Although they've managed to pick up a solitary point on three occasions, they would need to start racking up those wins if they want to see yet another season in the Spanish top flight. In their most recent game, they were on the wrong end of the scoreline in a five-goal thriller at home against Real Sociedad. With the game being perfectly poised at 2-2, an 82nd-minute winner from Aritz Elustondo made sure of the win for the visitors.
