Granada take on Celta Vigo this weekend
The 2021-22 edition of La Liga is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Celta Vigo take on Granada on Monday. Both teams have impressive players in their ranks and will want to win this game.
Granada are in 18th place in the La Liga standings at the moment and are yet to hit their stride this season. The away side suffered a 3-2 defeat against Real Sociedad earlier this week and will need to bounce back in this match.
Celta Vigo, on the other hand, have recovered after a slow start to their season and are in 17th place in the league table. The Galicians eased past Levante in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
Celta Vigo vs Granada Head-to-Head
Celta Vigo have an impressive record against Granada and have won eight out of 18 matches played between the two teams. Granada have managed only three victories against Celta Vigo and will need to step up on Monday.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place in January this year and ended in a 0-0 stalemate. Both teams wasted their chances on the day and will need to work on their conversation rates this weekend.
