Live in-play betting – 

These two teams have some of the most exciting attacking players in La Liga at the moment and may light up Catalonya with goals when they kick off this fixture.

Espanyol have started the season on a dismal note with just 1 point from their last 3 games.

Their results have not been helped by a series of injuries to key defenders but they have players who can help them get a good result in this game.

They lost their last league game 5-0 to Barcelona where they offered almost nothing as their Catalan Neighbors rolled over them in that fixture.

They will be looking to bounce back to winning ways with this game.

Celta Vigo have been fortunate to have Maxi Gomez in their team as the young Uruguayan has taken to the La Liga like a fish to water.

Having never played outside Uruguay, the 21 years old attacker has scored 3 goals in his last four games for Celta meaning he has netted in 12 of his last 14 games including his last few weeks in his home country.

They looked good defensively last weekend as they worked hard to secure a 1-0 win against Alaves and they could build on that with another victory in this game.
