Barcelona will look to extend their lead at the top of the La Liga table when they host Celta Vigo at the Camp Nou on Saturday evening. Barcelona managed an excellent 0-5 away win at Levante last time out in the league thanks to a hat-trick from Lionel Messi and two other goals from Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique. Meanwhile, Celta vigo only registered a nil-nil home draw against Leganes despite the fact they had a superior ball possession and over 15 goal attempts.

Betting Tips for the game
Barcelona have struggled a little bit towards the end of November, but they got back to winning ways since the beginning of this month. Barca have won their most recent three league outings, including their 0-5 away victory at Levante at the weekend. They are back at the top of the league table, although they only have three points more than the second-placed Sevilla.
Celta Vigo, on the flip side, have been in contrasting shape in this first half of the season, and their recent form has been similar. Os Celestes have won three, lost four and drawn three of their last ten games across all competitions. Away from home, Celta Vigo were on a six-game winless streak prior to their 2-3 victory at Villarreal in their most recent league trip.
This should be another easy win for Barcelona, as Celta Vigo looked really poor on the road throughout this La Liga campaign. Our betting tips and predictions would back the Asian Handicap -2.5 on Barcelona at odds 1.75.
