Celta Vigo vs Getafe Preview
Celta Vigo and Getafe meet at Balaidos this Wednesday in LaLiga. It’s a bigger game for the visitors who are hovering just above the relegation zone with work to do if they want to guarantee their status in the top flight next term.
Chacho Coudet’s Celta meanwhile have very little to play for and are comfortably nestled in mid-table with six games to play. Teams in such a position often tend to coast towards the end of the campaign with standards slipping slightly but there was no sign of that from Celta at the weekend. They went to Bilbao and produced an impressive performance to win 2-0 thanks to goals from Iago Aspas and Fran Beltran.
When the dust settles on the 2021/22 season, it’s largely a failure to pick up points at home that will be what Celta Vigo look back upon with regret. Their weekend win means they’ve now collected one more away point than they’ve managed at Balaidos from an equal number of games. Only Granada, Levante and Cadiz have worse home records than them.
That’s certainly something Getafe can take heart from heading into this match but they’ve had the opposite problem with a failure to win any of their 16 away games this term, the main reason why they remain in relegation trouble. They’ve been outstanding at home throughout the middle portion of the season but a 2-1 defeat against Villarreal at the weekend ended a lengthy unbeaten run at the Coliseum.
With a few sides below them starting to find a few wins, Quique Sanchez Flores will be starting to become slightly concerned once more. He needs to find some kind of solution to their away day blues, even if that only means grinding out a few road draws before the end of the campaign which could prove vital points in their safety bid.
Head to Head
- Last 6 Competitive Meetings: 2 Celta Wins, 2 Getafe Wins, 2 Draws.

- 3 of the last 5 meetings at Balaidos have been drawn.
Celta Vigo vs Getafe Predictions
Score Prediction: Celta 1-0 Getafe
Getafe are fighting for their lives but their poor away record doesn’t inspire much confidence in their ability to get a result here. Celta may not be great at Balaidos but they take belief into this following an excellent win at San Mames and should just have the edge here.
