Valencia vs Celta Vigo: Preview

Valencia form analysis

Los Ches come into the new year in excellent goalscoring form, netting eleven times in their last four league matches. Their most recent result was an emphatic 1-4 away win at struggling Cadiz. Hugo Duro, Diego Lopez and Jesus Vasquez all on target alongside veteran Javi Guerra. That attacking display came on the back of a thrilling 3-1 home victory over Villarreal, thanks to a Roman Yaremchuk opener and brace of Pepelu penalties before conceding a late consolation.

Prior to Christmas, Valencia ground out a hard fought 1-0 away win at Rayo Vallecano courtesy of a Sergi Canos strike midway through the second half. Their only dropped points recently came in a creditable 1-1 home draw with Champions League chasing Barcelona. Hugo Guillamon canceled out Joao Felix’s second half opener. With the manager implementing a more adventurous style focused on dominating possession and pressing high. Valencia look an exciting attacking threat capable of troubling any side in La Liga during 2024.

Celta Vigo form analysis

Celta Vigo come into the new year with three wins from their last five league matches. Their most recent result was a tight 1-1 away draw at Mallorca where talisman Iago Aspas put them ahead early on with an expertly taken goal before Cody Larin equalized for the hosts before halftime. Prior to that stalemate though, Celta picked up an excellent injury time 2-1 home win over Champions League chasing Real Betis thanks to Aspas’ 16th minute penalty canceling out Aitor Ruibal’s early opener before 19-year old Williot Swedberg netted a winner.

That dramatic victory built on a narrow 1-0 home success over struggling Granada sealed by a clinical Jonas Strand Larsen strike. Celta’s only dropped points recently came in an entertaining 3-2 home loss to high-flying Villarreal, where goals from Thiago Douvikas and Larsen made for a tense finish after going 3-0 down. On the whole, Celta look very dangerous going forward with the Aspas-Larsen partnership blossoming nicely, but could be more solid defensively having conceded seven times in their last four league games.
