Celta vs Espanyol (By: Morfeo)
We like to lay Celta in this game because things are not going the right way in the Galician team and Espanyol looks a real danger for them. Celta is an ambitious club and they had hired a former assistant manager of FC Barcelona. They had a very irregular season and didn't prolong his contract. So they are back to a new project and the pre-season has been pretty bad. They didn't win any friendly this summer, and even if friendlies are sometimes meaningless, winning games always help to raise morale and confidence.
On the other side we have Espanyol, a team who finished very well last season (they beat Atletico on their pitch among others) and they are on a 9 games winning streak dating back to 2017-18. We understand that Celta at home is rightly favorite, but we can't see any value in that price. Espanyol is entering this match with much more confidence and we expect them to take at least 1 point.
