Celta Vigo vs Osasuna Preview

Celta Vigo play host to Osasuna this Sunday evening with the Galicians still desperate to kick their season into life as we hit the halfway mark. Much better was expected of this Celta side this season but again they look to be facing up to a relegation battle following a series of disappointing results.

Oscar Garcia’s appointment was greeted with enthusiasm from most parties in Vigo but he’s not yet managed to turn things around with Celta having failed to take advantage of what on paper was a relatively kind set of fixtures. Just 2 points from games against Real Valladolid, Levante, Leganes and Mallorca suggests there are still some pretty deep-rooted problems in this Celta side. 

Osasuna have hit something of a downturn in form though with only 1 win in 6 heading into this. They lost their final two games of 2019 with Chimy Avila’s brace not enough to salvage anything from their home game against Real Sociedad. They have only lost 3 of their 9 away games to date though which is certainly pretty good going for a newly promoted side.

The visitors will be missing defender Facundo Roncaglia to suspension here as they travel across Northern Spain to Galicia. Celta meanwhile look to be on the brink of selling midfielder Stanislav Lobotka to Napoli so it remains to be seen whether he will be able to feature in this match. That sale should at least give them some funds in January with defensive reinforcements likely to be the priority.

Celta Vigo vs Osasuna Predictions

Score Prediction: 2-2 Draw

Both these sides look a bit vulnerable defensively right now. Osasuna have conceded twice or more in 4 of their last 5 league games while only 3 sides have conceded more than Celta this season. It’s a game that both coaches will truly believe they can win but it promises to be an even affair with both teams having players capable of producing both moments of magic and defensive errors.
