Barcelona are in good shape and form in the early part of the season as they continue their form from last season.
Xavi Hernandez’s men have only failed to win one game this season and have since been on a good ride in both the league and other competitions.
The Blaugrana club were held to a goalless draw by Getafe in their first game of the season and have gone on to win all of the subsequent once.
You would have to go back to June 4 to know the last time Barcelona suffered a loss, being beaten 2-1 by Saturday’s opponent.
Celta handed the Catalan side a defeat on the last day of the 2022/23 season but it was not enough to do any damage to their title win as they had already wrapped up the La Liga trophy.
Celta have not been great this season and have only managed one win in their first five games of the campaign.
Rafael Benitez’s boys beat Almeria just before the international break but have struggled to sustain that form as they lost to Mallorca after the break.
They have conceded seven goals in that run which should be a worry for them considering Barcelona’s free-scoring run.
Xavi’s men have netted 13 goals in their last four league games and 18 in six games across all competitions.
There have been two wins for each side in the last five meetings involving Barcelona and Celta and the fixture is once again expected to be competitive over the weekend.
