Celta Vigo-Levante Betting Preview: Back the hosts to claim a win

They may not be in the best form of late, but our expert says backing Celta tonight should be a profitable move for punters
The alarm bells are beginning to ring for a Celta Vigo side without a win since August and who have picked up just two points from a possible 15.

Three successive defeats have left the Galicians second-bottom of the table and a win tonight is an absolute must against Levante.

bet365 offer Celta at 21/20 (2.05) to claim their first home victory of the season, while the visitors are offered at 5/2 (3.50). The draw is available at 23/10 (3.30).

On paper of course Celta boast a much more technically gifted side than Levante.

The outfit from Vigo have shown some great touches at times this season, yet have failed to find any consistency and have struggled in front of goal.

Though they are out of form and not firing on all cylinders backing Celta to win looks like the only option here at a decent price of 21/20 (2.05) with bet365.

Under 2.5 goals appeals given the lack of cutting edge on show but not at 13/20 (1.65), which is too short to consider so we will go for a home win at odds against.

Opposing Levante on the road is generally a wise option and last season Celta were excellent at home. Tonight should see them rekindle some of that form and could earn punters some healthy returns in the process.
