Celta Vigo’s form towards the end of 2018 has been a complete mixed bag with four defeats, three draws and three wins in their last ten games across all competitions. The positive thing is that Celta looked a bit better on home soil over the past three months, having suffered just two defeats in their last ten competitive fixtures.
