Espanyol welcomes Celta de Vigo in a match of the 4th round of the Spanish La Liga.
Espanyol: The home team is holding the 18th position in the league with 1 point after a draw and 2 losses. They were trashed by Barcelona last weekend, a game in which they conceded a lot of chances in what was the worst defensive display of the season to date. They need to improve ahead of this match. Also, they have scored 1 goal only and conceded 7 goals so far.
Celta Vigo: On the other side, the away team is currently holding the 16th position in the league, with 3 points won after 1 win and 2 losses. However, they deserved their first win of the season against Alaves after creating a lot of good opportunities. So far in this season, they have scored 4 goals and conceded 5 goals. Although, they continue to look defensively vulnerable and it is expected that the home team bounce back.
Conclusion: Seems like that Espanyol is desperate for a win. Also, Celta Vigo, after last year great Europa League performance, has lost their manager and some of the tactical class along with him. Hence, this gives Espanyol a fighting chance and they might get a positive result here.
