Celta Vigo: Disappointing Season
Only bottom-side Elche has lost more La Liga fixtures than Celta Vigo this season, with the Sky Blues picking up just 12 points from their opening 14 matches of the campaign to sit 17th in the standings. Celta has finished eighth and 11th in their last two La Liga seasons, but they finished 17th in back-to-back campaigns before that, and it does appear this could be another difficult domestic campaign for the club.
The Vigo outfit is now under the management of Carlos Carvalhal, who took charge at the start of November and boasts a record of two wins, one draw, and one defeat from four matches. This is the first Spanish team for the Portuguese coach in his long career. We can’t trust a new coach because he needs some time to adapt and implement his ideas, so we won’t include Celta in our soccer picks and parlays.
Celta earned one point from a goalless draw with Rayo Vallecano in their last league game on Nov. 10, but they have not been victorious in Spain’s top flight since a 1-0 success over Real Betis at the start of October. Carvalhal will make changes from the side that took to the field for the first whistle against Gernika in the Copa del Rey last time out. Club’s legend Iago Aspas should be back in the final third of the field, while Kevin Vazquez and Agustin Marchesin are also expected to show in the starting lineup for this contest.
Sevilla: Fighting for Survival?
Sevilla faced no difficulties in a 3-0 win over Torremolinos in the Spanish Cup. However, the Andalusians have been struggling in La Liga this season, with the team collecting only 11 points from a possible 42. Jorge Sampaoli’s troops are desperate to escape the relegation zone.
The visitors have finished fourth in each of their last three La Liga campaigns, but they have not been in the bottom half of Spain’s top flight since being relegated to the Segunda Division in 1999-2000. They have more than enough quality to climb the table in the coming weeks, but the team is already 13 points off the top four and 13 behind the top six, so a campaign without European football is a real possibility for the club.
They will be missing Tanguy Nianzou and Ivan Rakitic following their red cards in the league defeat to Real Sociedad on Nov. 9. Alex Telles is also doubtful with a knee injury he picked up at the World Cup, while Thomas Delaney, Marcao, and Jesus Manuel Corona are all likely to miss out through injury. Yassine Bounou and Youssef En-Nesyri both impressed for Morocco at the 2022 World Cup, and the pair could be back in the starting lineup for Friday’s clash. If you’re betting online, you shouldn’t back Sevilla only because they are better on paper.

The two teams have crossed paths 106 times across all competitions, with their first meeting dating back to 1929. Sevilla has a slightly better record, with 49 wins to their name. The hosts have 39 wins, and 18 games have ended in draws.
The visitors are unbeaten in their last four meetings against the hosts, with the game at Friday’s venue last season ending in a 1-0 win, thanks to Rafa Mir’s goal. Four of their last five meetings have produced at least three goals.

Celta Vigo vs Sevilla Picks & Prediction
The hosts enter this clash as favorites priced at +120 on the three-way Moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at 2½.
This is a huge match for both sides, and we expect it to be a cagey affair. Sevilla is the better side on paper and will fancy their chances of putting a run of results together in the near future. Still, the visitors not only have a disappointing season but are missing many important players. Instead of backing Sevilla, which is a big mistake, we will focus on the goals market as we expect a high-scoring affair.
