FC Barcelona v Paris Saint-Germain - UEFA Champions League

Celta Vigo vs. Almeria

 

Match Date: 19 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Balaidos

 

Celta Vigo’s 4th consecutive loss prevented them from improving their rank in the top-flight league. The squad is currently stuck in the 8th spot after experiencing a series of unfortunate events.

 

In terms of form, the squad is really going down. It has only accumulated 4 points in its last 6 matches, following the stunning win against Barcelona and a stalemate to Granada. Celta Vigo’s drop was not just about the defeats. It is also noticeable that the club hasn’t scored in their last 5 matches, thus, compromising their rank in the league table.

 

On the other hand, if you think that Celta Vigo’s form is worse, wait until you see Almeria’s current standing. Aside from its recent thrashing to Real Madrid, the club is also winless in its last 6 matches and has already hit rock bottom. They need to feature in their upcoming match and prove that they cannot be easily tagged as a relegation favorite of sports betting sites.

 

Prediction

Celta Vigo 2-0 Almeria

Barcelona vs. Cordoba

 

Match Date: 22 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Camp Nou

 

Having clinched so many titles, Barcelona no longer needs to prove how strong it is. But for a more factual rub, the club has won 34 of its last 36 matches at home. Considering this aspect at hand, it doesn’t take a genius to see that Barca has the overt advantage over its opponent, Cordoba.

 

Cordoba has already hit the relegation zone. Occupying the 18th spot of the league table, definitely, they are no match against the online betting favorite, Barcelona. They can force a draw though. But even that (ambition) is a tough one.

 

Prediction

Barcelona 3-0 Cordoba
