Match Preview

Sevilla have started the new La Liga (LL) season positively, claiming back-to-back away victories ‘to nil’. At home last season they prospered against weaker opposition, as three of four home losses last season came to teams above them in the table, dropping points to only three teams below them here (D2, L1).
Only Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid earned more home league points than Sevilla last season (39), with only champions Barcelona netting more in home contests. There was plenty of entertainment too, with a league-high five (26.32%) of their home LL games featuring over 4.5 goals.
Celta Vigo may have lost in the opening round to Real Madrid, but they followed up with a fine 1-0 home success over Valencia. There has been a goal inside 15 minutes in both ‘Célticos’ fixtures so far, whilst they only lost three of 14 league fixtures last season when scoring first.
Something Celta must do to avoid another relegation battle is to drastically improve their away record. They won only twice on the road last season in LL (D6, L11), both versus bottom-half finishers. They also lost in seven of their ten away clashes against top-half clubs (D3), but did manage to score in seven of those ten.
Players to watch: Sevilla striker Luuk de Jong is still awaiting his first goal for his new club, but netted 28 in 34 league appearances for PSV last season.
Iago Aspas is also yet to score for Celta in two league fixtures so far, but he fired at least a brace in six LL matches last season.
Stat attack: Sevilla have won eight of the last ten competitive H2H meetings at home (L2).
Last season, Sevilla won 11 of 15 home LL battles in which they were the pre-match favourite (68.75%).
For four seasons running, Celta’s first away league game has finished 2-1 (W2, L2).
