The game between Celta Vigo and Athletic Bilbao is the last fixture of round 18 in La Liga. The home team lost their final game of 2018 against Barcelona, but the improvement in the performance of Celta under the coaching of Miguel Cardoso is visible. The Sky Blues had a clean sheet in the previous two fixtures at home after having the same record in seven games.
Athletic Bilbao also showed a good form in December but is still in the relegation zone with 16 points after 17 games. The Lions are still in search of their first win in an away fixture, although they had a clean sheet in their last away game against Alaves.
We expect an equal match between the two teams with a few goals. The bad form of Athletic Bilbao in their away games gives an advantage of Celta, and we think they will win the game with a minimal margin. I will back Celta 0.0 Asian Handicap, with Celta 1-0 Correct Score.
