Villarreal to Win

The home team has achieved their biggest success in Europe by reaching the final of the Europa League, but there is no time for celebration. Villarreal is in a close race for a spot in the same competition next season and they need to beat Celta Vigo to remain in contention. Meanwhile, Celta is without a strong motive and they are struggling with injures at the moment. So, our prediction is for Villarreal to win this game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

We expect to see more than a few goals in this game, for a number of reasons. First, Villarreal has gone over in seven of their last eight La Liga matches, while Celta has done the same in five of the last eight games. Furthermore, these two teams often play high-scoring duels since four of their last five h2h meetings have gone over 3.5 total goals.

Gerard Moreno to Score Anytime

The Spanish striker is Villarreal’s top scorer this season and he has been fantastic in all competitions. So far, he has scored 20 goals in La Liga and 6 goals in the Europa League. With that in mind, and since we expect Villarreal to win in a high-scoring game, it’s only logical to bet on Gerard Moreno to score at any time against Celta.

Villarreal vs Celta Vigo preview: The home team looking to secure Europe

The guests are in the middle of the table, without much room for improvement. Meanwhile, Villarreal is fighting for a spot in the Europa League next season. So, let’s take a closer look at these teams.

Villarreal

After four semi-final losses in European competitions, Villarreal finally broke the streak this week after eliminating Arsenal to reach the Europa League final. If they beat Manchester United in the final, they will play in the Champions League next season. But Villarreal will surely want to secure participation in the Europa League at least, for which they have to finish in the top six in the league. They are on course to achieve this and they are in good form with five wins in the last eight league games. Foyth and Iborra are injured and unlikely to play against Celta Vigo.

Celta Vigo

The team from Vigo is positioned right in the middle of the La Liga table and they are unlikely to move up or down by much. So, with that in mind, it’s not so surprising that the team is playing pretty inconsistently. In the last eight games in the Spanish league, Celta Vigo has three wins, three losses, and two draws. Unfortunately, Celta is also dealing with many injuries, with six players unavailable or at least questionable for the upcoming match.
