Celta Vigo welcome Valencia at the Abanca-Balaidos on Saturday night, with both sides looking to return to winning ways in La Liga. Celta Vigo have suffered an awful 4-2 away loss at Rayo Vallecano at the weekend, with their goals being scored by Nestor Araujo and Maximiliano Gomez. Valencia, on the flip side, only registered a 1-1 home draw against Valladolid at the weekend, in a game in which Rodrigo missed a penalty and Dani Parejo gave them the lead in the last 20 minutes of the game. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Celta Vigo have underperformed for the entire season so far and their recent form isn’t different. Os Celestes have only won three of their last 15 games across all competitions. They come into this tie on the back of a four-game winless streak in La liga, losing the most recent three of these. Due to this awful form, Celta only sit 17th in the standings, just two points clear of the drop zone.
Valencia looked like they have finally found some form towards the end of 2018, but they are now underperforming once again. They come into this clash on the back of a three-game winless run across all competitions, including a disappointing 1-1 home draw against Valladolid at the weekend. They have been in mixed shape throughout this La Liga campaign and currently lie 10th in the table, five points behind the top six.
Both sides looked poor of late and it’s difficult to separate them at the moment. However, the most recent two league meetings between these two have ended in draws, and we predict a similar outcome here. Our betting tips and predictions would back a draw at odds 3.20.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Celta have only netted three goals in their most recent four games in La Liga. Valencia, as we have already mentioned, have scored in each of their last eight games, but mostly just one goal per game. The most recent two meetings between these two have ended with the 1-1 scoreline, and we fancy another tight affair here. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals at odds 1.66.

Maximiliano Gomez isn’t Celta Vigo’s top scorer, but he has been the team’s most influential players this season. Gomez has helped Celta Vigo with nine goals and five assists in his 17 league appearances. In addition, he got on the scoresheet in Celta’s most recent La Liga fixture. Our first goalscorer prediction is Maximiliano Gomez at odds 5.80.
