Betting tips for Celta Vigo vs Shakhtar Donetsk - 16.02.2017
One of the most interesting duels scheduled this Thursday in Europa League will take place in Spain, with Celta Vigo and Shakhtar Donetsk being the two protagonists. The game starts at 18:00.
The Spanish team impressed us this season, but their recent form is not the same. Celta Vigo lost the previous two games, 0-1 to Alaves in Copa del Rey and 2-3 to Atletico Madrid in La Liga. Celta's strongest point is probably the attack, being capable to score against any team and we saw that in La Liga and Spanish Cup, scoring very easy against Barca and Real. Aspas & Co lost only one home game in the past five months.
Shakhtar Donetsk will not have an easy trip here, since their last official game took place in December. The Ukrainians did a good job in the friendlies, but it's still a big difference and a big advantage for their opponents. It is really impressive that Shakhtar lost only one away game this season in all competitions. More exactly, they have been defeated in UCL qualification rounds by Young Boys, 0-2 in Switzerland.
