Espanyol take on the visitors Celta Vigo in the round 26 match of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Saturday, February 18th at RCDE Stadium (Cornella de Llobregat).
After losing 2-3 at home to Real Sociedad just over a month ago, Real Espanyol have won two consecutive matches in the championship: against Elche (1-0) and Mallorca (2-1). However, after these victories, Diego Martinez's team suffered two defeats: against Valladolid (1-2) and Real Madrid (1-3). There is no stability, and Espanyol is only separated from the relegation zone by a small margin. In the next home game, the "parakeets" need a victory. They will attack. Recently, the team has almost constantly scored over 1.5 total goals in conjunction with their opponents. I believe that we will see at least two goals scored in this match.

On the contrary, Celta have improved and has not lost in four consecutive championship matches, but has not secured their place in La Liga for next year yet. If the team from Vigo has been conceding fewer goals recently, their overall goal total has been compensated by accurate shots on their opponents' goals. In the last four matches involving "the celestial ones," the over 1.5 total goal bet has only failed once when the team couldn't score against Osasuna. In the other three games, Karlosh Karvalyyalya's wards crushed Valladolid and Rayo Vallecano 3-0, and drew 1-1 with Real Sociedad.
In the match between two direct competitors in the battle for survival, whose defense can hardly be called ideal, I dare to simply believe in two goals and bet modestly on over 1.5 total goals. Over the 25 rounds of La Liga, this bet has won in 16 matches involving Celta and in 19 matches involving Espanyol. Moreover, in the last five championship matches, the guests have only played under 1.5 total goals twice, while the hosts have only done so once. In three of the four previous head-to-head matches, at least two goals were scored. In the current season, the opponents have already played against each other twice. In the first round of the championship, a 2-2 draw was recorded, and in the regular time of the cup meeting, the winner could not be identified either, ending in a 1-1 draw. I expect at least two goals from Espanyol and Celta's footballers in this match.
Prediction for the match: Over 1.5 scored goals.
