Celta Vigo take on the visitors Deportivo Alaves at the Estadio Municipal de Balaidos in the 9th tour of the Primera Division. The match will be played in Vigo on Friday, October 19th.
Celta Vigo were able to get only three points in their last five Primera Division fixtures. Interestingly, they won none of those games. One of those matches for the Celticos was against Sevilla who were one of the leading teams in the league so the loss was not so disgusting for them. However, in the other four games the team of Antonio Mohamed looked pretty weak too. For example, they were able to get a draw against Espanyol in front of their home crowd only because they away side scored an own goal. In their other home fixture against Getafe they allowed twelve goal attempts overall and drew in the end. Also, the Celestes had a productive match against Valladolid on the hosting side, they were winning with a 3-1 score by the 65th minute of that game but drew in the end. In their last three matches overall Celta Vigo lost to Sevilla with a 1-1 score, drew against Getafe with a 1-1 score and against Valencia with the same 1-1 score.

Deportivo Alaves have been surprising everyone with their performances so far this Primera Division season. They are in the first four in the table with fourteen points to their credit at the moment. Last tour the Babazorros were even able to beat Real Madrid. Interestingly, they have had four away fixtures already this season and have scored zero goals only in one of them against Barcelona. In their game against Rayo Vallecano on the away side though the team of Abelardo was able to score five goals. In their last three matches overall Deportivo Alaves beat Real Madrid with a 1-0 score, lost to Levante with a 2-1 score and drew against Getafe with a 1-1 score.
Deportivo Alaves have been scoring a lot of goals in their away fixtures recently. Despite of their win over Real Madrid last tour though it is unlikely that the away side will get a comfortable result even against the weakened Celta Vigo. Middle teams from Spain often fail and lose to a similar opponent to them after they beat a top tier club. This could easily happen to the Babazorros in the upcoming fixture. Furthermore, the Celticos are not an outsider in the Primera Division at all. However, it is unlikely that the hosting side will be able to keep their goal safe on Friday. The team of Antonio Mohamed has been conceding a lot recently and has allowed twelve goals already this season. For example, such teams as Valladolid, Getafe and Espanyol have all been able to score against Celta Vigo. It is likely that Deportivo Alaves will also score some goals against O Celtina. Even though it is hard to predict the winner for the upcoming fixture it is likely that the team of Abelardo will score. In their fourteen games between the teams at the Estadio Municipal de Balaidos the Babazorros were able to score in ten of them. Thereby we should expect the away side to score some goals on Friday.
Prediction for the match: Deportivo Alaves to score over 0.5 goals.
