Celta Vigo vs Eibar predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups ahead of this game at Balaidos.
Celta Vigo vs Eibar Preview
This is a really big game at the bottom end of La Liga particularly for Celta Vigo who really need a victory as they seek to put a run together that might allow them to move away from the relegation zone. Eibar are one of the teams they are trying to catch but the Basques did their survival prospects no harm by defeating Atletico Madrid last weekend.
Oscar Garcia’s appointment was largely welcomed by followers of Celta Vigo but he may just be starting to come under a bit of pressure now. Celta have gone 6 without a win in La Liga and were sent packing from the Copa del Rey in midweek by Segunda Division Mirandes. There was at least a bit more encouragement to be found from their 1-1 draw away to Athletic last weekend.
Eibar were also sent packing from the Copa, losing 3-1 at third tier Badajoz although it was a fairly experimental line-up that José Luis Mendilibar named. They’ve picked up key home wins in recent weeks over Atleti and Granada to give themselves a bit of an advantage on the relegation places but they have only won 2 of their last 25 away matches in La Liga which won’t exactly enable them to travel to Galicia with much confidence.
Celta Vigo are pretty close to full strength here with no major injuries and no suspensions heading into this game. Pione Sisto will be hoping his Copa del Rey goal will help earn him a starting berth while Eibar are likely to make wholesale changes from the team that was dumped out of the cup.
Celta Vigo vs Eibar Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
Celta average just 0.7 goals per home game this term in La Liga which is most unlike them and really poor given they do have several talented attacking players. They really need to win here but they almost have the feel of the team that has forgotten just how to close games out and it would be no surprise if Eibar left Balaidos with a point.
