Celta Vigo vs Almeria Preview 


Almeria are the weakest side in La Liga, having won just two points in their 13 road matches. I will back Celta Vigo to make a massive step towards escaping relegation and win three points on Friday.

  • Celta Vigo beat Almeria 3-2 earlier this season. 
  • Almeria have lost 8 of their last 9 away matches. 

Head to Head 


Celta Vigo have a 9-4 advantage against Almeria with 2 draws in 15 matches. 

They last met in September 2023, the game being won by Celta Vigo 3-2 in Almeria. 

Celta Vigo Form 


After starting this month with a commanding 3-0 victory against Osasuna, Celta Vigo suffered to back to back defeats in La Liga against Getafe 3-2 and Barcelona 2-1. 

They were so close to returning to winning ways last weekend at Cadiz, having a 2-0 lead with Iago Aspas and Williot Swedberg finding the net, but couldn’t hold on to that lead, the match ending without a winner 2-2. 

Rafael Benitez’s side is currently sitting in 17th position with 21 points, which is three points above the relegation zone. Their record at home has been quite poor though – two wins, four draws and seven defeats. 

Celta Vigo Injuries & Team News 


Joseph Aidoo, Mihailo Ristic, Renato Tapia, Carlos Dotor and Miguel Rodriguez are injured. 

Iago Aspas is suspended. 

Almeria Form 


Almeria are close to breaking a couple of negative records in Spanish football as they are still winless in La Liga after 26 rounds, sitting deep inside the relegation zone after collecting just nine points.  

Rojiblancos are unbeaten in their last three league appearances though, holding Atletico Madrid to a 2-2 draw last week, Athletic Bilbao to a goalless draw before that, while also snatching a point at Granada last weekend 1-1. Their first match in February was a 2-1 loss to Valencia at Mestalla.  

Gaizka Garitano’s side was also eliminated from the Spanish Cup in late 2023 by a lower-division team Barbastro 1-0. Their last victory in a competitive match was in late October, also in Copa del Rey against Talavera 2-0. 

Almeria Injuries & Team News 


Striker Ibrahima Kone is injured. 

Verdict

Almeria's chances to avoid relegation are minimal after grabbing just 9 points so far. Celta Vigo beat this opponent earlier this season and I will back them to do it again on Friday.
