Celta Vigo 1-1 Valencia
|After a number of difficult years, Valencia are just two wins away from cementing Champions League qualification.|
|A closely-fought 2-1 defeat to a Barcelona side on the verge of being crowned champions, was Valencia’s only awayday blemish in recent weeks (W3, D1, L1). That loss was, however, followed by a 2-1 reversal at home to Getafe and Valencia don’t want a wobble now with CL qualification in sight. Those two losses were preceded by a run of eight La Liga wins and one draw.|
|Defeat for Valencia here would represent the club’s first run of three losses at Celta Vigo (in all competitions) within the past 20 years. On the other hand, a Valencia win would give them a first league double over Celta Vigo since 2012/’13.|
|Though mid-table, Celta Vigo have turned their home into a fortress of late, returning a record of: W5, D4 L1. With just a clean sheet against Valencia, Celta Vigo would record their first run of nine home league games unbeaten since May 2016.|
|The half-time scoreline could be important here. Celta Vigo (in home games) and Valencia (in away games) have taken a combined total of 29 points out of a possible 33 when leading at the break.|
|Players to watch: With Iago Aspas out injured, Celta Vigo will look to Max Gomez, who is currently the club’s second-highest goalscorer with 13 goals from 31 appearances.|
|Defender Martin Montoya provided the assist to Rodrigo, which gave Valencia a consolation goal in the 2-1 defeat to Getafe last time out. On average, he creates a ‘key chance’ every other game – so this is an excellent opportunity for him to buck a personal trend.|
|Stat attack: Defeat for Valencia would make this season the third in succession where they have gone on two or more runs of 3+ consecutive losses.|
|Each of the last five matches between these sides has seen both teams score, and produce a total of over 2.5 goals.|
|Valencia have failed to keep a clean sheet against Celta Vigo in their last 11 attempts.|
