Overview

In an intriguing La Liga encounter, Villarreal is set to host Celta Vigo at the Estadio de la Cerámica. With both teams looking to improve their positions in the league table, this match promises to be a competitive clash. Villarreal, currently sitting at 14th place with 16 points, will aim to leverage their home advantage and climb up the rankings. Celta Vigo, not far behind and occupying the 18th spot with 13 points, will be looking for a crucial away win to escape the relegation zone. The match is scheduled for Wednesday.

Villarreal

Villarreal has had a challenging season so far, with only 4 wins out of 17 games played. Their recent form has been inconsistent, as reflected in their last five games which resulted in two losses, one draw, and two wins. The team's goal difference stands at -10, indicating difficulties at both ends of the pitch. In their last fixture, Villarreal faced a tough defeat against Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernab├ęu, with a full-time score of 4-1. Despite this setback, Villarreal has shown resilience in past encounters against Celta Vigo, holding a slight edge with 2 wins and 2 draws out of the last five meetings. Playing at home at the Estadio de la Cer├ímica could provide them with the boost needed to turn their fortunes around.

Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo's season mirrors that of their hosts but with even fewer victories; they've managed just 2 wins in 17 matches. However, their recent form suggests a potential turnaround, having secured a win and three draws before succumbing to a loss in their last five outings. Their goal difference is marginally better than Villarreal's at -9. Celta Vigo's latest match saw them clinch a narrow 1-0 victory over Granada CF at their home ground, Abanca-Bala├şdos. Historically against Villarreal, Celta Vigo has won once, drawn twice, and lost twice in their last five matchups. Despite playing away from home this time around, they will be keen to build on their recent positive result and move out of the relegation zone.
