Celta Vigo – Statistics & Current Form
For the Celticos, things are not going well in the new season either. Last season, Celta Vigo made it to the rescue bank just four points from the relegation zone. In the new season, Celta Vigo started again poorly and had to satisfy themselves after five points from the first five league games with 16th place.
Since early March, Fran Escriba has taken over the coaching job at Celta Vigo. Although the 54-year-old fixed the league in the preseason, but could not take the momentum at the end of the season. With opponents such as Real Madrid, Sevilla and Valencia Celta Vigo had not caught but the most straight season opener anyway.
The only win of the new season so far has been against Valencia. Point wins in strong home teams such as Sevilla and Atletico Madrid are certainly praised as well. Joining Celta Vigo in the recent performance in Wanda Metropolitano against Atletico Madrid, a win against Espanyol is quite realistic.
Coach Fran Escriba will be able to make the most of their home game against Espanyol. Only Fernandez, Hernandez and Junca will not be available due to injury. Big changes in the starting eleven are not expected.

Espanyol Barcelona – Statistics & Current Form
Unlike the Celticos, Espanyol Barcelona enjoyed a gratifying finish of the season last season. With the seventh place in the table, the Pericos got the right to start the Europa League qualification, which was successfully completed at the beginning of this competitive season. For the first time, Espanyol has been represented internationally for almost 13 years.
At the end of the season, Espanyol Barcelona had lost none of the last nine league games and won among others even with a 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid. Results, which sprayed much optimism, especially for the next season. The team around coach David Gallego, however, has so far recorded only four points from the first five league games.
At home, there was not a single counter for the Pericos. Away, Espanyol Barcelona has not lost any of their last nine away games (competitive and seasonal). The Pericos remained only in one of the last nine away games without scoring.
Gallego, who previously coached Espanyol’s second team, celebrated a successful qualifying campaign for the Europa League, but performances in the domestic league were not promising, as was confirmed by a recent 3-1 home defeat by Real Sociedad.
Departures from top performers such as Borja Iglesias or Mario Hermoso are certainly not easy to cope with. Nevertheless, the squad of Espanyol can still be seen. With Ferreyra, Corchia, Iturraspe and Piatti four players will be injured due to injury. If the Pericos in Vigo can still take points, lucrative odds at Celta Vigo versus Espanyol Barcelona.
Probable line-up of Espanyol Barcelona:
↳ Lopez – Vila, Calero, Lopez, Sanchez – Granero, Darder, Roca, Wu – Vargas, Calleri
