Hoping to carry on from where they left off in March, Celta Vigo will mark their return to action this weekend when they welcome Villarreal to an empty Abanca-Balaídos on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, entering the enforced break with back-to-back 0-0 draws against Granada and European contenders Getafe, the mood in Celta Vigo’s camp should be at a high following their return to action. Finding a route out of the bottom-three and desperate to gain some breathing space, Head Coach Oscar saw his side previously enjoying a five-match unbeaten run, their most fruitful patch of the season so far. Snatching a point off of Real Madrid and also shocking many with a deserved 2-1 win against Sevilla back in February, Célticos will be hoping for leading marksman Iago Aspas to spearhead their charge this weekend. Finding the net in back-to-back home victories against Leganes and Los Palanganas, there is no doubt that Celta should see Saturday as a real opportunity to mark their return with what could be a crucial victory.

As for the visitors, putting in another sluggish display and hit with a 1-0 defeat at Athletic Bilbao prior to the interruption, Villarreal are a side in desperate need of a pick me up. Watching their European ambitions take what could be a lethal blow after back-to-back La Liga defeats, Javier Calleja’s men could be in for another overwhelming return to action this week. Along with showing some glaring issues on the road prior to the break, a run highlighted by a dreadful 4-2 drumming at lower league Mirandés in the Copa del Rey, Villarreal hold a worrying record against Saturday’s hosts. Hit with a 3-1 defeat when the two sides faced off earlier in the season, the Yellows have now lost each of their last three straight meetings against Célticos.
