Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Live: La Liga journey continues with their second match of the season on Thursday as Lionel Messi and company head to Celta Vigo. Barca won their opener with an emphatic 4–0 victory over Villarreal, with young sensation Ansu Fati scoring twice, while Messi finished a penalty kick.
Barca: Well, that was a nice start. Ronald Koeman’s tenure as Barca coach began with a nice victory where Fati was the star. Messi looked fairly sharp, he seemed committed as expected, and now it is time to take it on the road. The defense looked good in allowing just one shot on goal, but they must be cautious with the versatility of veteran striker Iago Aspas, Celta’s only real scoring threat.
Oscar Garcia’s Celta Vigo will square off against Ronald Koeman’s Barcelona at the Balaidos Stadium on Thursday, October 1 for their next LaLiga clash. Celta Vigo vs Barcelona is scheduled to kick off at 9:30 pm local time (Friday, 1:00 am IST). Here’s a look at the Celta Vigo vs Barcelona live stream details and our Celta Vigo vs Barcelona prediction for the clash.

Celta Vigo vs Barcelona prediction and match preview
Celta Vigo are currently in eighth place on the LaLiga table, with one win and two draws from their three games so far. Celta Vigo began their campaign with a 0–0 draw against Eibar and then beat Valencia 2–1 before being held to a 1–1 draw against Valladolid on Sunday. Oscar Garcia’s men have lost only two of their previous 13 league games at home and will be hoping to keep up their impressive record against Barcelona. Celta Vigo are unbeaten in their last five meetings against Barcelona at the Balaidos Stadium.
Celta: Aspas is in top form with three goals in his last two games and has been clinical on set pieces, and defensively the team has reacted well. Of course, Barca is a different team with a ton of speed in attack, so they will need to close down in numbers and play with a deeper backline. The potential is there to get a result — just like last season, but they must be near perfect in defense.
Barcelona will be looking to extend their winning start under Ronald Koeman when they travel to face Celta Vigo in La Liga on Thursday (8:30pm kick-off).
Koeman replaced Quique Setien over the summer and, after a delayed start due to their Champions League run last season, opened the 2020/21 campaign with a 4–0 win over Villarreal. It was a largely one-sided match with Koeman’s side showing early signs of moving away from the system that had both helped and hindered them over the years.
But they face a completely different task in Celta Vigo, who will press Barcelona as Villarreal didn’t, hounding the Blaugrana at every chance they get. And this is a Celta Vigo side still unbeaten in La Liga, currently third in the table, winning one and drawing two of their opening three games so far.
Celta Vigo also have recent history on their side, unbeaten in their last five home league games against Barcelona, winning three and drawing two. Balaidos is also one of Barcelona’s least favourite grounds to visit, losing six times there in the 21st century. Only at Santiago Bernabeu (seven) have they lost more in La Liga this century.
So, what will break on Thursday? Celta Vigo’s home run against Barcelona, or Ronald Koeman’s bubble?
Barcelona return to LaLiga action with a trip to Celta Vigo tonight.Following a turbulent summer at Camp Nou, Ronald Koeman’s reign got off to a winning start on Saturday as Ansu Fati’s early brace and a Lionel Messi penalty helped secure a thumping 4–0 home victory over Villarreal.
Messi has since spoken of the need for unity at Barca in the aftermath of his high-profile summer transfer saga and will look to let his performance do the talking again at Balaidos against a Celta Vigo side that are unbeaten in their opening three LaLiga matches, winning once against Valencia.
