On Saturday afternoon, Valencia and Celta Vigo go head-to-head at the Mestalla as both teams look to return to winning ways in La Liga.Valencia form guide
Los Che saw a four-game unbeaten league record come to a spectacular end, as they suffered a 5-1 defeat at Real Madrid in their last La Liga outing.
The defeat leaves Ruben Baraja’s team in ninth place in the Spanish top-flight table, four points adrift of the European spots. It didn’t help improve Valencia’s recent record in La Liga, as they head into this game on the back of just two wins in their previous eight outings.
Valencia has a decent recent record in La Liga on home soil, having won four of their previous six home matches, including three of their last four games. They have also conceded just one goal in their previous four home matches in the Spanish top-flight.Celta Vigo form guide
The Galicians are enduring another difficult campaign in La Liga, as they currently sit in 18th place in the table, having picked up just seven points from their 13 league games so far.
A 4-3 defeat at Athletic Club before the international break means that Celta are winless in their last nine matches in the Spanish top-flight. The poor run includes six losses and three draws.
The visitors have had major issues keeping the opposition out lately, as Celta have now conceded at least two goals in five of their last eight matches in La Liga.
Rafa Benitez’s team has been poor on their travels in La Liga lately, losing four consecutive league games away from home.
Their recent away struggles have mainly been down to poor defensive displays, as they have conceded at least two goals in four of their previous five matches on their travels.What am I backing?
Valencia has not been in the best of form, but they are decent on home soil, and Celta are a poor away team. The bet I am backing is the home victory.
