Celta vs Alaves Prediction
FanDuel have the Celta as strong favorites going into this match with odds of -115, while the Alaves are +350 outsiders. 2 total goals are predicted.
Celta step into this game in 12th place in the league having secured 10 wins, 14 losses and 10 draws in their last 34 matches. The team has had five losses in the latest nine matches and have netted a total of 37 so far, conceding 38. This has generally been because of the agility displayed by Iago Aspas, who has four goals, and Franco Cervi who has two. In their most recent match, Celta dropped points against Granada 1-1.
Alaves have a tally of 28 points so far this campaign and might possibly be relegated. They outplayed Villarreal 2-1 last Saturday. The squad has had 12 losses in the latest twenty matches and to date, they’ve managed seven wins, 20 losses and seven draws. When El Glorioso have managed to win, it’s mostly been thanks, in many ways, to the efforts by Gonzalo Escalante and Joselu. Can the pair steerEl Glorioso to success here?
Heading into this match, Celta will be without Hugo Mallo. Alaves have not ruled out any players.
