La Liga returns to action this weekend as football teams across Spain resume their campaigns with renewed vigour after a gruelling week of European football. Levante and Celta Vigo have enjoyed a breather this week and will look to start afresh at the Estadio de la Ceramica on Monday.
Levante are struggling at the moment and are currently rooted to the bottom of the La Liga table. The Valencia-based outfit has lost four of its five games this season and is in desperate need of a victory this month.
Celta Vigo have an excellent squad but have not met expectations over the past few weeks. The Galicians started the season well but have experienced a startling dip in their recent games and will need to bounce back over the weekend against Levante.
Levante vs Celta Vigo Head-to-Head
Levante do not have a particularly positive record against Celta Vigo and have only won six matches out of a total of 20 fixtures played between the two sides. Celta Vigo have managed 10 victories and have a slight upper hand going into this game.
The previous meeting between these two teams ended in an exhilarating 3-2 victory for Levante. Both sides finished the game with ten men on the day and will hope for a friendlier affair on Monday.

Levante vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Levante have struggled in their own half this season and will need a miracle to keep a clean sheet against Celta Vigo. The home side cannot afford to make mistakes on Monday and are in need of a morale boost of the moment.
Celta Vigo, on the other hand, have a formidable attacking line-up and the likes of Nolito, Emre Mor, and Iago Aspas will need to take it up a notch against Levante. The Galicians have an excellent opportunity to turn their season around this weekend and should be able to win this game.
Prediction: Levante 0-2 Celta Vigo
