Celta Vigo vs Valladolid – Prediction (La Liga – 29.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Celta Vigo recently put five losses in a row behind them with victory at Villarreal (3-1), opening the scoring for just the third time in their league campaign. They currently have a perfect record (W3) from games where they have opened the scoring this season. However, cleansheets still elude them, and they have conceded in all but one of their last nine league games. Despite six of those nine fixtures returning 0-0 half-time results, a goal difference of -6 in the opening 15 minutes of the second half quantifies their habit of starting poorly after the break.

Valladolid have enjoyed just the one cleansheet on the road themselves. They have opened the scoring just twice away from home this league season, but won on both occasions, underlining the importance of a strong start to either half. Temptingly for Valladolid’s more optimistic fans, both of those away victories have come at clubs below them in the table after week 14. Goals should be in abundance regardless, as the last four H2H top-flight meetings at Celta Vigo have seen both teams score and over 3.5 goals produced.

Players to watch: Returning to goalscoring form with a match-winning brace, Iago Aspas is Celta Vigo’s only player to record their first goal of the game more than once this La Liga (LL) season. Óscar Plano has failed to score in three consecutive LL appearances on the road for Valladolid, but he opened the team’s account in both H2H meetings last season.

Stat attack: Celta Vigo’s last three LL H2Hs at home vs Valladolid have produced over 1.5 first-half goals either way. Valladolid are one of just a few remaining LL clubs yet to have a player sent-off this season. Referee Javier Alberola Rojas’ average of 2.86 yellow cards per game is the lowest of all LL 2019/20 officials.
