Levante vs Celta Vigo predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as the Galicians target some much needed festive cheer.
Levante vs Celta Vigo Preview
This is the penultimate fixture in La Liga in 2019 and it’s a significant one at the bottom end of the division. Celta Vigo find themselves still in the relegation zone with Oscar Garcia yet to truly work his magic on this side. Levante meanwhile continue to blow hot and cold but take a comfortable cushion on the relegation zone into this match.
They’ll be 12 points above it if they can win it and it’d be really hard to see them getting truly sucked back into the relegation scrap in that case. However a defeat would leave them looking over their shoulder heading into the new year. Their unpredictable nature has seen them win four and lose four of their last eight with an important 2-1 win at Granada their most recent result.
Celta meanwhile will feel as though they missed a great chance to jump out of the drop-zone last time out. They were a goal and a man up on Mallorca but conceded a late leveller to leave them winless in three games that have also seen them take on fellow strugglers Leganes and Real Valladolid. They’ve so far failed to take advantage of what has been a relatively kind run of fixtures and it’ll be a pretty miserable festive period for anyone connected with Celta if they slip up again here.
Celta’s chances aren’t helped by an injury to Denis Suarez, arguably their most important player alongside Iago Aspas. Rafinha may operate in the number 10 role as a result here and he does offer a genuine goal threat as we saw last weekend. Levante also have a significant injury absentee with defender Ruben Vezo sidelined.
Levante vs Celta Vigo Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Levante
We’ve been waiting all season for Celta to come good but they’ve not really shown any sign of it besides that surprise victory at Villarreal. That win has failed to provide any kind of launching pad for their season though and with Denis Suarez absent, it’s hard to fancy them here although you can never be too sure what you are going to get from Levante.
