  • Celta Vigo have found La Liga (LL) wins hard to come by in recent weeks, managing just one across their last seven league matches, although it’s been draws rather than defeats that have dominated results in that time (D4, L2). It wouldn’t be a huge shock to see the same here given that each of their last five H2H LL clashes with Espanyol also finished level.
  • Aspirations at the start of the campaign might have centred around building on last season’s eighth-placed finish and pushing for European qualification, but Celta now find themselves six points worse off than what they were at this stage last campaign. Home form has played a huge part in that, so much so that heading into the round of matches, they’ve returned the joint-fewest number of home points across the division (five – W1, D2, L6).
  • Promoted Espanyol were tipped by many to face a fight to survive, yet they finished the last round of fixtures just one point behind their big city rivals Barcelona, and might even be dreaming of finishing above them this season, a feat not achieved since 1942!
  • For that to become reality though, they’ll have to drastically improve their away form, as only 13% of their points and 26% (five) of their goals have been accumulated in away league matches so far. Add in their failure to win in ten competitive visits to Celta Vigo (D7, L3) and the task at hand for Espanyol is a big one, although there might be no better time to be travelling to the Balaídos.
  • Players to watch: Celta’s Santi Mina boasts five goal contributions across his last five competitive appearances (G3, A2 – includes ET), and he scored his team’s last H2H goal. Meanwhile, opponent Yangel Herrera has two second-half goal contributions (G1, A1) across his last three Espanyol appearances.
  • Hot stat: No LL side has led fewer times at half-time than Celta this season (W1, D11, L5).
