Celta Vigo 3-0 Real Valladolid –  Betting Review



Betting Analysis

Looking at the 1×2 betting market first where a glorious Celta Vigo won for favourite backers @ 1.71. Real Valladolid were not in bad form coming into the match, but totally out played and well beaten in this game.

Moving onto the Asian handicap betting for this contest. Celta Vigo -0.75 won with plenty in hand @ 1.90. The home side played far better than I imagined and made a mockery of this handicap on the day.

Looking at the Under/Over goals market. The line was set at 2.25 and the Over won @ 1.88, purely thanks to the excellent attacking display from the home side. The important betting note related to under/over market is that Celta continued to seek more goals until the end. Whereas, earlier in the campaign they would have sat on narrow leads and focused on defence and wasting time.


Match Summary

This was a sensational and highly impressive performance from Celta Vigo, who absolutely destroyed a Valladolid side which had been in good form coming into the meeting.

The host immediately found their stride and had the game won by the half hour at 2-0, which at the time flattered Valladolid.

Celta played some superb football and much to the enjoyment of their fans, the team never sat back and continued to put their foot down.

The result was a commanding showing and chances coming often. They got the third goal and hit the woodwork twice too, fair score 4-0.

Celta Vigo eased their relegation fears with the victory, opening up a five-point gap between them and the relegation places.

Estadio de Balaidos was treated to arguably their best performance of the season and the party began early on.

Celta cruised into an early lead, the goal came minutes after Iago Aspas rattled the post with a long-range strike.

Gabri Veiga set up Haris Seferovic who beat the offside trap and beat the keeper Sergio Asenjo with a well-placed header.

Valladolid were given no time to breathe as Celta moved the ball with precision and pace.

The host eventually doubled their lead following an exquisite bit of team play. Veiga struck with a first-time finish into the bottom corner.

Valladolid simply were not settled and never gained momentum. Pacheta’s side fell even further behind when man of the match Veiga tucked in his second goal of the game for 3-0.

Valladolid were ineffective in attack and defensively, had no answers for the quality of football by Celta which will be a concern for the boss.

Valladolid’s misery was only compounded by a late red card for Amallah.
