Celta Vigo vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction 5 February 2022

Celta Vigo hosts Rayo Vallecano in round 23 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Saturday, February 5th at Estadio de Balaídos (Vigo)
Celta has been in really good form lately. In the last five matches, the team gained three victories and one draw and suffered only one defeat. Such results had a positive impact on the standings of the Galicians. Now they are in 12th place with 27 points. The gap from the relegation zone has increased to nine points! Interesting fact: the Sky Blues scored at least two goals in each of the last five won matches. In total, the charges of Eduardo Coudet have seven victories in LaLiga, and five of them were whitewashes. Yes, Celta is showing far from the best results at home: three victories, two draws, and six defeats with a goal difference of 13-15. However, the Celts won the last two home games!

The players of Rayo Vallecano are probably tired now, but they are still in a good mood. The fact is that on February 2, the team hosted Mallorca in the cup match and won with a score of 1-0. Thus, Andoni Iraola’s men will play in the semifinals of the tournament. As for the current LaLiga, the Red Sashes are also doing quite well. They have played 21 matches and are now in eighth place in the standings (31 points). The gap to the European competition zone is three points. However, Rayo’s form has not been impressive lately. In the last five matches, the team gained only one victory (three defeats and one draw). Away, the Red Sashes look not just weakly, but very weakly: one victory, two draws, and seven losses with a goal difference of 7-17.
In the first half of the season, a head-to-head match between Celta and Rayo Vallecano ended in a goalless draw. However, five out of six previous games between these teams ended with an exchange of goals scored. Now Celta cannot boast of high results at home. The same can be said about Rayo Vallecano in the context of away results. Still, I think the Galicians will be closer to victory. This is indicated by a number of factors. Firstly, the team won the last two games at Estadio de Balaídos. Secondly, the Celts are simply fresher than their opponents, who played a quite difficult match in the Spanish Cup quarterfinals in the middle of the week. In my opinion, the most correct decision is to bet on the victory of the hosts, but with a zero handicap.

Prediction for the match:

Celta Vigo to win with 0.0 handicap
