The 2021-22 edition of La Liga returns to the fold with another round of matches this weekend as Celta Vigo lock horns with Unai Emery's Villarreal outfit at El Madrigal on Saturday.

Villarreal vs Celta Vigo Preview

Villarreal are currently in seventh place in the La Liga standings and have been fairly impressive so far this season. The Yellow Submarines suffered a shock 1-0 defeat against Osasuna in their previous game and will need to bounce back with a positive result this weekend.

Celta Vigo, on the other hand, are in 10th place in the league table at the moment and have improved after a slow start to their campaign. The Galician outfit edged Mallorca to a 4-3 victory last week and will be confident ahead of this fixture.

Villarreal vs Celta Vigo Prediction

Villarreal have not been at their best under Unai Emery this season and will need to step up to the plate in this fixture. The likes of Gerard Moreno and Dani Parejo have plenty of experience in the top flight and will want to make an impact this weekend.

Celta Vigo have improved since the turn of the year and are perfectly capable of pulling off an upset on their day. Both teams are evenly matched at the moment and could share the spoils on Saturday.

Prediction: Villarreal 2-2 Celta Vigo
