CELTA – LAS PALMAS
Celta de Vigo hosts Las Palmas in a game between two mid-table teams in the Spanish La Liga. This match is from La Liga’s 29th round and it’s going to be played on Monday night.
These two teams are very close in La Liga’s standings. Celta are currently 11th with 38 points won, while Las Palmas are 12th with 35 points. Both teams still have solid chances to improve their positions in the table, as the teams in the middle of the table are very close to each other.
Celta and Las Palmas are entering this game, having won their last matches in La Liga. Celta managed to beat Deportivo La Coruna in the last round, while Las Palmas won three points against Villarreal at home. We could say that these two teams are very equal, so we should expect a competitive game with a lot of unpredictability.
Celta’s manager Eduardo Berizzo can use almost a full squad, with just Ruben Blanco being a doubt for the game against Las Palmas. Everyone else at Vigo is healthy and ready to play.
Las Palmas will be without the suspended Mauricio Lemos, while Vicente Gomez and David Simon are doubtful for the clash. Angel Montoro and Michel Macedo are recovered from their last injuries and once again ready to play.
If we look at the goal difference, Las Palmas are the team with better stats there. Both teams have conceded the same amount of goals – 45, but Las Palmas have scored more – 44, compared to 40 for Celta.
But in same time Celta can use one of the best and most profilic strikers in the league – Iago Aspas, who has scored 15 goals so far. This was the reason why Aspas was called in the Spain national team in the last two weeks. Las Palmas must watch out for Aspas, because otherwise they’d be in big trouble.
