Sports Ticket: Celta Vigo vs Huesca La Liga Tips, Prediction and Preview
We will back Celta to continue their brilliant form of Wednesday, also on the back of their solid results at home (4W,3L). The teams that defeated them at this ground so far are Barcelona, Sociedad and Atletico Madrid.
We are also expecting some goals in this match since Celta have conceded in 5 of their 7 home games this season, while Huesca scored in all except 2 of their away games this season.
While Huesca are continuing to pick up points at the wrong end of the standings, they are desperately in need of a second win. However, that desire to gain maximum points may play into the hands of their hosts, who will fancy their chances of a fifth win in six.
Celta Vigo went into the Christmas break on the back of some excellent results and they will be keen to carry on with the same in Wednesday’s La Liga clash with the newly promoted Huesca.
The Sky Blues, who had a torrid time at the start of the campaign (1W, 4D, 5L) are on fire lately and picked points in 5 consecutive matches via 4 wins and a draw.
The draw happened in their latest trip to Getafe before beating the likes of high pressing physical sides like Granada, Alaves, Cadiz and Bilbao.
Meantime, Huesca managed to win just once in 15 attempts so far and sit at the rock bottom of the league table. However, they do not lose games as one may presume since 9 of them are draws.
Things are going to get tough for Huesca in the next couple of weeks as they meet the likes of Barcelona, Betis, Villarreal and Real Madrid inside the next 7 rounds.
While Santi Mina is closing in on a return for Celta, the forward is only in contention for a place among the replacements.
Despite witnessing his side fail to win their last match, Coudet could opt against making any alterations to his starting XI.
Huesca are likely to replace the suspended Pablo Insua with Jorge Pulido, who returns after serving a ban.
Shinji Okazaki has failed to score in his last three appearances, which may lead to a recall for Mir down the middle of the attack.
