Sevilla vs Celta Vigo Preview: Team news, stats and prediction

Sevilla are in danger of missing out on European football for the first time in 18 years after being held to a 2-2 draw by bottom-of-the-table Almeria.

The draw leaves Sevilla in 16th place, just four points above the relegation zone.

Sevilla have been poor at home this season, winning just one of their last five games at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

Celta Vigo are also in poor form, having lost their last two games.

However, Celta have a good record against Sevilla, having won three of their last five meetings between the two teams.

The game is likely to be close, but I think Sevilla will just edge it.

They are the better team on paper and have the home advantage.

I predict a 2-1 win for Sevilla.

Team news:

Sevilla are without the injured Jesus Navas, Karim Rekik, and Marcao.

Celta Vigo are without the injured Hugo Mallo and Renato Tapia.

Stats:

Sevilla have conceded the first goal in 11 of their 12 defeats in La Liga this season.

Celta Vigo have conceded the first goal in 11 of their 14 defeats in La Liga this season.

Sevilla have won just one of their last five games at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

Celta Vigo have won three of their last five meetings against Sevilla.

Prediction:

Sevilla 2-1 Celta Vigo
