Celta Vigo vs Levante Prediction & Betting tips
The tension will be cut on Saturday afternoon, when Celta de Vigo and Levante compete against each other in the Balaidos. Both teams are completely out of shape and long for victory to keep the relegation ghost out of the door.
Celta de Vigo:
Celta de Vigo is in trouble, because with six defeats in the last seven league matches, the Galicians are moving further and further away in the rankings. It is high time for a turnaround, because the gap on the relegation zone has now shrunk to only one point. The home game of Saturday afternoon against Levante is for the blue shirts so in all respects a real finale.
Celta de Vigo is completely out of shape, but can look forward to the return of star player Iago Aspas. Last week, the vedette made his return to the Spanish fields after more than two months of injuries. Celta de Vigo immediately started to play a better game, although Aspas could not prevent losing 3-1 at Getafe. The visitors were especially furious with referee Pablo Gonzalez and the VAR. Getafe was indeed given a questionable penalty and Celta de Vigo striker Maxi Gomez got yellow twice in a time span of one second (so red). “We feel robbed,” said midfielder Jozabed Sanchez. I can imagine the anger of Celta de Vigo, but the team can focus better on its own shortcomings. Particularly in the rear there is still plenty of work to do for coach Miguel Cardoso.
Levante was one of the surprises of La Liga in the first months of the season, but lately the club from Valencia has had a lot of trouble both inside and outside the lines. First of all, the redblues of their last ten matches held only seven points, bringing the relegation zone closer and closer. Furthermore, trainer Paco Lopez saw attacker Emmanuel Boateng to leave China and defender Tono Garcia is in prison for threats, extortion and money laundering. In addition, midfielder Jason transfers to free rival Valencia at the end of the season. Lopez still just appeals to him, but the fanatical supporters are tired of him and would rather not see him in the shirt of Los Granotas anymore.
All in all, it is therefore no longer as cozy at the Ciutat de Valencia as at the beginning of the season. However, Levante will have to take points quickly, otherwise the team will face a tight closing phase of the competition. Particularly the lack of scoring ability of the last few weeks will cause Lopez to worry. At the beginning of the season Levante scored on the production line, but now the team is already dry three games in a row. Attacker Jose Luis Morales, the absolute leader of the team, managed to let the net bulge just once in just over three months.
