La Liga betting tip : Celta Vigo- Las Palmas
Villa have found some form in recent starts, winning 4 of five and leading Real Madrid by two goals until late in the other, scoring eight in their last three outings and this is not a club known for their free scoring ways. They are back up to sixth and still within touching distance of a Champions League spot, but a point will not help that cause much, especially with Atletico finding a late winner yesterday and it has to be all or nothing today. The visitors have had 8 days to rest and prepare for this, with Celta Vigo having had a battle royal with Krasnodar on Thursday, taking an injury time 2-1 lead that they will have to defend in four days time some 3,500km away in Russia. Vigo have no La Liga ambitions, it is all about the Europa League , but if there was one other game they would like to win, it would be their Galician derby game with La Coruna next Sunday, so, three games in eight days and today's is surely the least important for Celta and by some way. The hosts are resting Fontas, Jonny, Sisto and Guidetti who all started in midweek and have a couple of injuries on top and will play mindful of picking up others.
We sided with LP for a reecnt home game with struggling Osasuna which they won 5-2 ...............
Motivation for mid table Las Palmas has been hard to come by and they have lost back to back home games, albeit against top 5 teams, they were previously unbeaten at home and I expect them to be desperate to return to winning ways today as they are now "just" 10 points above the drop zone, especially with 3 of their next four on the road and their home visitor in that sequence being Villarreal. They will be hugely buoyed by a 3-3 midweek draw at leaders Real Madrid on Wednesday, where they led by two with five minutes of regulation time remaining and can carry that goalscoring form to a comfortable win today. I see this similar to an early season visit from Granada that I previewed (link) and we can approach this similarly.
