The 2021-22 edition of La Liga is back in action with another set of fixtures this weekend as Valencia take on Celta Vigo on Sunday. Both teams have impressive players in their ranks and will want to prove their mettle this weekend.

Valencia are in 11th place in the La Liga standings and have not been at their best this season. Los Che were held to a 1-1 draw by Rayo Vallecano in their previous game and will need to return to winning ways in this fixture.

Celta Vigo, on the other hand, are in 13th place in the league table at the moment and are yet to hit their stride this year. The Galicians edged Deportivo Alaves to a 2-1 victory last weekend and will want a similar result from this match.

Celta Vigo vs Valencia Prediction

Valencia have managed to stage a recovery after a slow start to their season but will need to work on their finishing this month. The likes of Goncalo Guedes and Helder Costa have improved in recent weeks and will need to make their mark this weekend.

Celta Vigo have blown hot and cold for most of the year and will need to be more consistent to manage a top-half finish. Both teams are evenly matched on paper and could play out a draw on Sunday.
