Celta Vigo 1-1 Valencia

Match Review

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.
