Barcelona vs Celta Vigo | La Liga (23.09.2023, 18:30)

Xavi’s Barcelona faces Celta Vigo in the sixth matchday of La Liga, aiming for their fifth consecutive league victory, and their sixth if we include their dominant win this week in the Champions League against Royal Antwerp. Barcelona has had a strong start to the season and has ambitions to be a contender in both La Liga and Europe. Their recent 5-0 victories are a testament to a team playing attacking football with significant offensive firepower. The club is reminiscent of the spectacular team they were a few years ago and boasts a balanced blend of experienced players and young talents, allowing them to combine effectiveness with enthusiasm.

On the other hand, Celta Vigo faces a challenging away match and is looking to bounce back after a less-than-ideal start to the season. Currently sitting in 16th place with only 5 points, they are coming off a home defeat against Mallorca. Another loss could push them even closer to the lower positions in the table. Celta Vigo has often-troubled Barcelona in recent direct clashes, including their last match at Balaidos, which they won 2-1.

In their most recent La Liga match, they suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat to Valencia. In the UEFA Champions League, Atletico faced Lazio and delivered a disciplined performance, taking a 1-0 lead into added time. However, a late header from Lazio’s goalkeeper in the 95th minute resulted in a 1-1 draw.

On the other side, Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid has won their first five La Liga fixtures. Jude Bellingham has been in fine form, netting five league goals already and adding to his tally in midweek.
