Match Preview

🤜🤛 Head to head

If we look at their past head to head meetings going back to 04/05/2019, there has been little between the sides with Barcelona winning 2 of those games, Celta Vigo 2 and 2 being draws in regulation time.

There were also plenty of goals scored in those games, 23 overall which averages out at 3.83 goals per meeting.

The previous league clash featuring these clubs was La Liga match day 13 on 06/11/2021 when the final score was Celta Vigo 3-3 Barcelona.

On that day, Celta Vigo managed 52% possession and 18 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. The goalscorers were Iago Aspas (52', 96') and Nolito (74').

Barcelona had 10 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Ansu Fati (5'), Sergio Busquets (18') and Memphis Depay (34') scored.

The referee was Alejandro Hernández Hernández.

ℹ️ Team News: Barcelona

Moussa Wagué (Fitness), Sergiño Dest (Muscle Injury), Nico González (Fractured Toe), Gerard Piqué (Tear in the abductor muscle), Sergi Roberto (Muscle Injury) and Pedri (Hamstring Injury) are unavailable for Barcelona manager Xavi Hernández. Suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Sergio Busquets and Moussa Wagué.

It’s our opinion that Barça look set to go for a 4-3-3 system, handing starts to M. ter Stegen, Dani Alves, Ronald Araujo, Eric Garcia, Jordi Alba, Ricard Puig, Frenkie de Jong, Pablo Gavira, Ousmane Dembele, P. Aubameyang and Ferran Torres.

ℹ️ Team News: Celta Vigo

Due to a fully injury-free squad available to select from, the Celta Vigo manager Eduardo Coudet doesn’t have any fitness concerns to report ahead of this game.

We are inclined to think that Os Celestes will likely utilise a 4-1-3-2 formation, starting the game with Matias Dituro, Kevin Vazquez, Joseph Aidoo, Nestor Araujo, Javi Galan, Fran Beltran, Brais Mendez, Denis Suarez, Franco Cervi, Iago Aspas and Thiago Galhardo.

✨ Prediction

It seems to us that Celta Vigo will surely find it tough to break down a Barcelona lineup who should do really well if they play to their full potential.

Our selection here is for a comprehensive 3-0 margin for Barcelona at the end of the game.
