Villarreal hosts Celta Vigo this Saturday in la Liga in which one would look the absolute favorite considering the team’s positioning in the table, yet considering the recent results, some bookmakers tend to favor Celta to be the winner in this match, even though the hosts should win this on paper.
Villareal is a good team, on the 5th place of La Liga, they sport a positive goal difference and three points in front of real Sociedad. The 4-2 loss to Real Madrid may not count as much in the long run, especially if they manage to fix their defensive block as the offensive one rests on the shoulders of Gio dos Santos. After their relegation in 2012, the hosts will be out to show they can do better than they did in their previous La Liga campaign.
Celta on the other hand is on the 11th place, with a negative goal difference and 26 points. On the bright side of things, they have managed to win against Real Sociedad, Almeria and Osasuna. The bottom flight of La Liga table is so tightly connected that seven teams are separated by merely two points, that’s why each and every match has importance.
The visitors are aware of the pressure put on them, and they managed to get back on track, by winning surprisingly against Valencia, and a goalless draw against Athletic Club Bilbao. Many seem to go for a Villareal win, but at the same time, Celta Vigo should not be disregarded. For the same reason we decided to place a bet with 7 units on the number of goals to be over 2.5, at 1.72 with odds from TitanBet.
