All Alaves v Celta Vigo match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - along with the latest match odds.
Alaves won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 1-0 La Liga losing effort in their last game against Atlético Madrid.
In that match, Alaves managed 39% possession and 9 shots at goal with 3 on target. For their opponents, Atlético de Madrid got 8 shots on goal with 4 on target. Luis Suárez (54') scored for Atlético Madrid.
Alaves have found it difficult to unlock defences in more recent games. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 4 versus opposing sides during the course of their last 6 outings. In those games, Babazorros have also seen the number of goals against them come to 15. Nevertheless, we’ll just have to find out if that pattern might be replicated here in this match or not.
Leading up to this clash, Alaves:
- have not won against Celta Vigo in their previous 2 matches in the league.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 matches in the league.
After tasting defeat last time out to Real Madrid in La Liga action, Celta Vigo and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that game, Celta Vigo had 50% possession and 8 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. The scorer for Celta Vigo was Santi Mina (40'). For their opponents, Real Madrid CF got 16 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. Karim Benzema (20', 30') and Marco Asensio (94') scored for Real Madrid.
The stats don’t lie, and Celta Vigo have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 10 goals in total. In defence, Os Celestes have been far from perfect.
Going into this encounter, Celta Vigo have not won against Alaves in games played away from home for the previous 4 matches in the league. Not the best of away records.
