Celta Vigo vs SevillaLa Liga, KO: 20:00 Apr 12, 2021, Abanca-Balaidos
Fresh from their victory over Atletico Madrid, Sevilla face Celta Vigo in a Monday night Spanish La Liga clash at Abanca-Balaidos. Celta Vigo are a dangerous side, especially at home, but the Andalusians will take confidence from their win against the league leaders and should have the edge in this one.
Sevilla showed their quality last time out in La Liga, claiming a 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid. Marcus Aruna got the only goal midway through the second half as they put up a solid defensive display to hold off the league leaders.
Julen Lopetegui’s men are firmly in control of the top four race as they sit fourth on the table, 12 points above fifth place Real Betis. They are unbeaten in their last four La Liga matches, claiming three wins in that run.
Sevilla are not as solid defensively on the road as they are at home with eight goals conceded in their last four away matches.
Celta Vigo are coming off a 3-1 victory at Deportivo Alaves in their previous La Liga outing. Goals from Nolito, Iago Aspas and Santi Mina gave them a healthy lead before Alaves pulled one back four minutes from time.
Eduardo Coudet's men still maintain slim hopes of securing a Europa League finish as they sit nine points behind sixth place Real Sociedad. They have struggled lately though with just three wins from their last 13 La Liga matches.
Celta Vigo have not been in good form at home and are winless in their last three home matches. They suffered a 3-1 defeat against Real Madrid in their previous home fixture.
