A quick peek at the odds suggests anything but a win for Celta Vigo will come as a surprise when they take on Espanyol at Abanca Balaidos this coming Saturday in the La Liga.

Celta Vigo finished last season as number 11 on 46 points in the La Liga. At Abanca Balaidos, they welcome Espanyol, who ended up last season as number 14 on 42 points.

We expect to see some solid dedication from both Celta Vigo and Espanyol as starting a season with a defeat is an undesirable outcome for anyone's morale.

Celta Vigo are relatively average in the art of goal-scoring these days. They claimed a steady ten goals in their previous ten matches, for an average of one goals per game. They simultaneously allowed their opponents 11 goals, or an average of 1.1 goals a game. Furthermore, they fought their way to four clean sheets in this run.

Espanyol travel to their next La Liga match, averaging a lowly 0.6 goals per game in their last ten matches. They scored a disappointing total of six goals, while also conceding 12 goals. That amounts to an average of 1.2 per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring three times.

Celta Vigo vs Espanyol Prediction

Celta Vigo won three of their previous six matches at Abanca Balaidos in the La Liga. They drew one and suffered two defeats, scoring ten goals to seven against.

European qualification is the ideal scenario Celta Vigo hope to accomplish by the end of the season, but everything needs to click for this to happen.

Espanyol came through their last six away games in the La Liga without a single win. Of those six matches, they drew two and lost four in which, they were outscored by ten goals to three.

A top half finish is the bare minimum Espanyol will expect from this season. The visitors are targeting a spot in Europe and know a good start will leave them in a good stead.

Both Celta Vigo and Espanyol are having a hard time finding their way to the net. With the teams clashing in this round 1, we find a low scoring match is the natural pick.
