Barcelona to Win with Handicap (-1)

Since the odds on the outright Barca win in this game are too low, our prediction is for Barcelona to win the game by at least two goals. After all, that’s exactly what has happened in three of the last five meetings between these two teams. While Celta Vigo is not a bad team, Barcelona is obviously better and they need to win this game to keep the hope of winning the title alive.

Over 3.5 Total Goals

The goals are simply pouring in Barcelona games this season and the team is leading the league with 3.31 goals per game, way higher than any other team. Furthermore, Celta Vigo is third in this department with an average of 2.89 goals per game. So, it’s safe to expect a lot of goals in their duel and two of their previous three h2h games have gone over 3.5 total goals.

Lionel Messi to Score First

The Argentinian legend wanted to leave Barcelona at the start of the season but things are seemingly all right now after the return of Joan Laporta as the team’s president. That turn of events lead to another great season by the team’s captain, who is leading the list of La Liga’s top scorers with 29 goals, seven more than Benzema and Moreno in second place.

Barcelona vs Celta Vigo preview: Barca still hoping for a miracle

It would take a crazy turn of events in the last two rounds for Barcelona to win the title, but there is still a theoretical chance of that happening. Meanwhile, Celta looks destined for the eight-place finish in this La Liga edition.

Barcelona

After drawing with Levante in the previous round, Barcelona is now even further away from the title. They are four points behind Atletico Madrid and two points behind Real Madrid, so winning the league this season is highly unlikely for Blaugrana. Four wins, two draws, and two losses in the last eight matches were seemingly not enough to keep them in the race until the end but the team will certainly try to win the remaining two games, just in case. Wague, Roberto, Coutinho, and Fati are injured and won’t play in the next game.

Celta Vigo

The team from Vigo needs Villarreal to win the Europa League and secure a spot in the Champions League by doing if they want to get to the Europa League next season even if they finish eight, which seems like the most likely scenario at the moment. Celta has been doing great lately since they’ve won four games in a row in La Liga, but they do have a few injury problems ahead of their duel with Barcelona since at least six players are questionable for that match.
