Celta Vigo vs Elche preview: A very close and interesting matchup
While these two teams are safe and sound in the middle of the standings, we can still see an exciting duel. So, here's a closer look at both teams:
With two wins, one draw, and three losses in the last six La Liga games, Celta Vigo is not in such a great form. But the team has been pretty much stuck around the middle of the standings for a while, so they've been playing the season out basically and that certainly affected their performances. In any case, the team is pretty much where they were expected to be at the start of the season.
When it comes to team news, Hugo Mallo, Carlos Dominguez, and Nolito will all miss the next game through injuries. Otherwise, the team is in good shape.
Celta Vigo predicted lineup:
Dituro – Vazquez, N. Araujo, Aidoo, Galan – Beltran – Mendez, Suarez, Cervi – Aspas, Galhardo
After the results of last round, Elche is now officially out of any relegation worry and they will be playing in La Liga next season as well. The team has two wins, one draw, and three losses in the last six matches in the league, which was enough to keep them out of trouble and allow their fans to have a stress-free end of the season.
In addition to this, Elche has no injured or suspended players at the moment, so they'll be able to send their best team against Celta Vigo in the next game.
Elche predicted lineup:
Badia – Barragan, Mascarell, Bigas – Fernandez, Guti, Gumbau, Palacios – Perez, Carrillo, Milla
