Elche vs Celta Vigo (La Liga, 26.09.2014)

Celta de Vigo are riding on the wave of success after what some would call a good La Liga season. As Celta get ready to travel to Elche, they have the task to get the three points that would keep them above the current La Liga champions. Despite the fact that Elche are on the 14th place in the table, and Celta on the 5th, the bookmakers do not offer a great margin of victory between the two.

The hosts come from a heavy defeat against Real Madrid, where Cristiano scored four of the five goals, and prompted the press to point fingers towards the potential La Liga winners after just five fixture days. Elche followed the lead of other teams and scored through a penalty, but it wasn’t enough for an upset. As it stands now they have conceded nine goals in three consecutive matches, which of course does not excuse the approach they have for each match.
Celta won recently against Deportivo La Coruna after managing to hold Atletico Madrid to a 2-2 draw. Their first goal was scored by Nolito early in the game which allowed them to put enough pressure on the visitors. Berizzo did not change the system from the previous matches and sent Nolito, Orellana and Larrivey up front for great finishing in front of the goal. Sergio Alvarez was the reason Celta won, as the goalkeeper denied Medunjanin a penalty.

Last season at the same stadium Elche managed to win against Celta, but now it’s a different situation, Celta are stronger which is why Bet365 gives them 2.25 odds for an outright win. Elche gets 3.10 and Celta for both halves goes for 3.60. Elche to win either half is at 2.10, and we’re betting 8 units on the second half with most goals at 2.10 with Bet365.
