Currently holding the third position in La Liga with 51 points, Barcelona will be looking to add another victory to their tally and keep up the pressure on the league leaders. Their recent form "DWWLW" indicates a strong performance with consistency in both home and away fixtures. Against Celta Vigo specifically, Barcelona has enjoyed success with three wins and a draw out of their last five meetings.

Prediction

The prediction for this match favors Barcelona as the likely winner. The data suggests that Barcelona's superior form and league position give them an edge over Celta Vigo. Despite playing away from home, Barcelona's consistent scoring ability and stronger recent performances against top-tier opposition make them favorites to take all three points.

However, football is unpredictable, and Celta Vigo's desperation for points to avoid relegation could inspire a spirited performance. With the match taking place at Abanca-Bala├şdos, Celta Vigo will undoubtedly look to leverage their home advantage and possibly upset the odds.

In conclusion, while Barcelona is predicted to win based on current form and historical data against Celta Vigo, anything can happen on match day as both teams vie for crucial points at different ends of the table.
