The stats don’t lie, and Celta Vigo have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 13 goals in total. Defensively, Os Celestes have not been doing too well. Historical results aside, we will just have to wait and see whether such a trend will be replicated in this next game.
Analysis of their past results shows that Celta Vigo:
- haven't beaten Sevilla when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. They really have not been travelling well at all.
- are unbeaten in their previous 2 league matches away from home.
- are without an away win for the past 8 league matches. Their travelling support will be needed here, for sure.

Team News: Celta Vigo
Thanks to a completely injury-free squad to pick from, Celta Vigo boss has zero fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash.
In our opinion, Celta Vigo have the ability to find the back of the net against this Sevilla outfit, however that is unlikely to be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We’re going for both teams to score in a 2-1 win for Sevilla when all is said and done. Should be an interesting one.
