Barcelona welcome Celta Vigo to Camp Nou on Tuesday evening with Xavi Hernandez's men aiming for another win to cement second place in the Liga table.

Finishing as runners-up would give the Catalans access to next season's Spanish Super Cup and, given the club's financial problems, the economic windfall that qualification entails would be significant.

The visitors, meanwhile, secured top-flight safety at the weekend and can head to Camp Nou free of pressure.

Barcelona vs Celta Vigo latest odds

Celta recorded a win on their previous visit to Camp Nou at the end of last season and the Galicians are priced at 6/1 (7.00) with bet365 to pull off another shock.

Barca, for their part, can be backed at 2/5 (1.40) to claim three points with the draw offered at 4/1 (5.00).

Barcelona vs Celta Vigo first goalscorer

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the favourite to score first at 11/4 (3.75) while Barca's top scorer this season Memphis Depay can be backed at 10/3 (4.33) and Ferran Torres is priced at 4/1 (5.00).

The second top scorer in La Liga behind Karim Benzema is Celta's Iago Aspas with 17 strikes and the former Liverpool forward is available at 9/1 (10.00) to break the deadlock.

Barcelona vs Celta Vigo preview

Xavi Hernandez's side have conceded in seven of their last eight matches in all competitions and they have on occasions looked defensively frail.

Relegation strugglers Levante, Cadiz, Rayo Vallecano and Mallorca have all found the back of the net against the Blaugrana in the last month and Celta will feel that they can at least get on the score sheet at Camp Nou on Tuesday.

With Iago Aspas in stunning scoring form there should be plenty of interest in backing the visitors to contribute to a high scoring game.

Barcelona vs Celta Vigo tips & predictions

Both teams to score is priced at 4/5 (1.80) while combining this selection with over 2.5 goals sees the odds rise to a healthy looking 21/20 (2.05).
