Granada vs Celta Vigo Preview
The Saturday action in La Liga concludes in Andalusia where Granada are playing host to relegation-threatened Celta Vigo. Both sides come into this game with a bit of momentum after good results last weekend but it’s a bigger match for the visitors who have the chance to, for the first time this season, put a bit of distance between themselves and the relegation zone.
Granada meanwhile will have at least one eye on their Copa del Rey Semi-Final 2nd Leg against Athletic Club next week. Following back-to-back league wins including a fine 3-0 victory at Osasuna last time out, they now have 36 points and are virtually safe. That is a fantastic achievement given this is still only February in their first season back at this level.
Celta Vigo have considerably more work to do but the picture is looking a bit brighter for them now. They showed spirit to battle on with 10 men for most of the game against Leganes last weekend and eventually won it through Iago Aspas. That result lifted them up to 16th and it’s just 1 defeat in 7 now for the Galicians in La Liga.
Granada boss Diego Martinez may be tempted to rest a few players here ahead of the huge Copa del Rey clash in midweek. However he may also decide that the momentum they have built up is not something he wants to lose and Celta Vigo won’t be expecting any favours at what has been one of the toughest grounds to visit this season in the Spanish top flight.

Granada vs Celta Vigo Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
Celta have drawn 4 of their last 7 games and significantly they are starting to look a more solid outfit across the pitch. They’d probably settle for another draw here and it wouldn’t be a terrible result for Granada either with the hosts likely to be keen to just get through this without defeat and without injuries before they entertain Athletic at Los Cármenes this coming week.
