Espanyol vs Celta Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
The duel between Espanyol and Celta Vigo will most likely decide the look of the bottom part of the table. Both teams are not having the start of the season that they would have wanted and this is their chance to change something, for better or for worse.
Espanyol managed to get a draw at their league opener when they played against the mighty Sevilla with the game ending 1-0. They faced an unexpected defeat against Laganes in their second game and in the third game, in the Barcelona city derby, they got demolished by the ruler of the city, as one would expect. Messi, Suarez and the gang managed to put in 5 goals in Espanyol net. Not taking Laganes into consideration it seems that they had some really tough opponents in the early stage of the championship and that their current form is not the best indicator of what is to be expected in their next match.
Celta Vigo are in a similar situation as their rivals. They have lost 2 out of 3 games so far, with the only win being the last game against Alaves, which is considered the worst team in the league. Celta plays with a lot of contact and has already received 9 yellow cards since the start of the season.
This will be a hard game for those looking to place a bet. Taking everything into consideration, both teams seem to be at the same level and the game could go either way. When it comes to hand to hand comparison the situation is also similar. In their last 8 games, Celta Vigo won 3 games, Espanyol 2 and 3 games ended in a draw. When these two teams face each other there is usually over 1.5 goals per game. They have a completely different philosophy so one thing is certain, it will be a match full of excitement.
Espanyol don't have lots of missing players for the match against Celta. Óscar Duarte and Javi López are injured and they will not play for sure. All other players are available to play and all of them are highly motivated to win all three points here.
On the other side Celta also do not have many missing players for this game. Nemanja Radoja and John Guidetti are not fully fit and they are doubtful for the match. All other players are available to play and they will play aggressive from the first minute.

Espanyol: Lopez; Martin, Lopez, Hermoso, Sanchez; Piatti, Fuego, Darder, Jurado; Baptistao, Moreno
Celta: Alvarez; Mallo, Cabral, Fontas, Jonny; Sanchez, Lobotka, Wass; Aspas, Gomez, Sisto
