Levante vs. Celta Vigo – La Liga, October 26, 2020
Levante hosts Celta Vigo on Monday, October 26, at Estadio de la Ceramica in Villarreal to wrap up Matchday 7 of the 2020-21 Spanish La Liga.
Both Levante and Celta are riding a three-game losing streak, so their Monday’s clash will have a lot on the table even though it’s still early in the season.
That means a lot of interesting markets to choose from, so I bring you the best Levante vs. Celta Vigo betting pick along with the latest odds update and team news.
Levante vs. Celta Vigo Odds
|Levante to Win||+145|
|Celta Vigo to Win||+200|
Over the last five months, Levante has played its home games at Estadio de la Ceramica in Villarreal, as the Frogs’ home stadium is under reconstruction. Anyway, this should be a close game, and the bookies won’t be surprised by any eventual outcome.
Interestingly, Levante has won its last three matchups with Celta Vigo after eight straight losses to the Sky Blues.
Levante vs. Celta Vigo Preview
Levante is sitting bottom of the La Liga standings with three points and a 5:10 goal difference. The Frogs failed to score in each of their previous three outings, losing to Sevilla 1-0, Real Madrid 2-0, and Athletic Bilbao 2-0.
As well as the Frogs, the Sky Blues couldn’t find the net in their last three showings. They lost to Barcelona 3-0, Osasuna 2-0, and Atletico Madrid 2-0.
Celta Vigo is sitting at the 17th spot with five points and a 3:9 goal difference, just above the relegation zone. The Sky Blues barely avoided relegation last season, and after one win and two draws in the first three rounds this term, things look bad once again.
The 33-year-old forward Iago Aspas leads the way for Celta, scoring all three goals for the Sky Blues. The 34-year-old winger Nolito tallied one assist, and these two veterans will be the biggest threat to Levante’s defense.
Still, the Sky Blues desperately need more from winger Emre Mor and playmaker Denis Suarez. They will miss a couple of defenders Monday, as Joseph Aidoo is sidelined with COVID-19, while Hugo Mallo struggles with a muscle injury.
Striker Jose Luis Morales leads the way for the Frogs with three goals in five outings. They can count on all first-team players besides midfielder Nikola Vukcevic (muscle).
Levante vs. Celta Vigo Pick
After three straight losses, both Levante and Celta Vigo desperately need something from this clash. It can easily go either way or finish in a draw, so I would stay away from the side bet. Picking a draw at +225 makes sense, but I would stick with the totals and bet on both teams to find the net.
Remember that the last 11 encounters between these two foes haven’t ended in a draw. Both Levante and Celta couldn’t score in their previous three outings, but their last five head-to-head duels saw both teams scoring at least once.
Also, those five encounters produced three or more goals in total each.
The eventual opening goal Monday will be a huge game-changer. I expect both teams to take an attacking approach in order to snap their skid.
Both Teams to Score YES-125
