Celta Vigo will be aiming for a win to move further away from the red zone in the Spanish top flight when they host relegation favorites Almeria on Friday night.

The hosts sit three points off the bottom three, and it would be a surprise to see them relegated, considering that they are competing in La Liga for the twelfth year in a row. Rafael Benítez's side had a great chance to widen the gap to the relegation zone last weekend when they were two goals up against Cádiz with just over 25 minutes remaining. Unfortunately, two late goals from Juanmi and Machis forced a draw.

Almeria meanwhile narrowly avoided relegation on their return to La Liga last season, but this season they will need a miracle to avoid the drop. The visitors are bottom of the table with just nine points from 26 games and have the worst away record in this division. 

Celta Vigo vs Almeria Betting Tips: Home team to win

While Celta have only picked up one win from their last four games, the performances in those matches are nothing to sneeze at.  The Sky Blues hit eight goals during that spell, which is a good performance considering they only scored once in the previous three outings.

Almeria are the only side yet to win in La Liga this season, and their away record is even worse. Rojiblancos have lost eleven of their thirteen away games this season and I expect another defeat this week.
