La Liga 2022-23
Barcelona topped the La Liga standings following the results of the previous round. The hosts were ahead of Real on goal difference.
Team Xavi’s performance is amazing. In 7 rounds, 19 goals were scored with only one conceded. This is the team’s best result in the league.
In their last match, Barcelona did not have a good time. In the Champions League, they lost to Inter, with a score (0-1).
The team has very good results at home, as the last three matches were all victories.
The team from Vigo is in 11th place in La Liga. So far, Celta have scored 10 points. We conceded 13 goals and scored 9.
The club’s main problem is poor implementation. Only 9 goals were scored in 7 matches.
The last meeting against Betis was very successful, as they managed to take three points by winning with a score (1-0).
Of the 9 team goals, 5 were scored by Iago Aspas. The attack leader of Celta at 35 is still useful.
