Updated: January 27, 2014

Granada becomes a heavy favorite of online bookies when they go against Celta Vigo. Despite winning over Real Betis, Celta Vigo travels to Los Cármenes with a poor away form that can be easily taken advantage by Granada.

Match Date: 31 January 2014 (local time)

Venue: Estadio Los Cármenes


Team Form


Granada’s injury issues have indeed, affected their match against Real Madrid. But then again, they remained “competitive.” They have prevented the Los Blancos from scoring more than two (2) goals.


Worthy of recognition was the club’s goal keeper, Roberto, who denied Cristiano Ronaldo from converting a stellar overhead kick.


But while it is true that Granada managed to remain competitive, their upcoming match against Celta Vigo requires them to translate efficiency into victories. Their current form is far from being impressive, having only won two (2) of their last six (6) matches. Moreover, they cannot afford to slip further down the table, as the battle to get out of the relegation zone is now fiercer than ever.


Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo shares the same form with Granada. Like their upcoming rivals, they too, have only won two (2) matches in their last six (6) matches. However, they are two (2) points behind Granada. They are on the trailing side and they cannot afford to sink further into the bottom of the La Liga table as the competition gets tighter everyday.


Celta Vigo just came from an astounding victory Real Betis. The former nailed a 4-2 victory, hich could very much serve as an inspiration when they travel to Los Cármenes.


Online betting’s top pick: Granada

Granada’s home court advantage shall be their best weapon in the match. They will most likely to take advantage of Celta Vigo’s deteriorating away form wherein they have already lost four (4) of their last away matches. They have also failed to score in three (3) of those away encounters and unless they step up, the odds will always be in Granada’s favor.
