Celta de Vigo and Cadiz will lock horns with each other in La Liga this coming weekend. The match between Rafael Benitez’s side and Sergio González’s team will be held at the Estadio Municipal de Balaídos and is scheduled to kick off at 8 pm UK time next Monday.

Celta de Vigo

Celta de Vigo are having a bad season and could get relegated to the Segunda Division at the end of the season. Los/Os Celestes ended up as high as 13th in the La Liga table last season, but they could end up in the bottom three this campaign.

Rafael Benitez’s side are third from bottom in the La Liga table at the moment with eight points from 14 points. They are a point behind Real Mallorca in 17th.

Celta de Vigo will head into the match against Cadiz next week on the back of a goalless draw with Valencia away from home in La Liga. It came after a 4-3 defeat to Athletic Bilbao on the road in the league which followed a 1-1 draw with Sevilla in front of their own fans in La Liga. Earlier this month, Celta beat Turegano 4-0 away from home in the Copa del Rey.

Team News:

Celta de Vigo are likely to line up in a 4-4-2 formation. Vicente Guaita will be in goal for the visiting team. Kevin Vazquez, Carl Starfelt, Unai Nunez and Manu Sanchez will be the four defenders. Oscar Mingueza, Fran Beltran, Luca de la Torre and Jonathan Bamba will be the four midfielders. Iago Aspas and Jorgen Strand Larsen will be the two forwards.

Cadiz

Cadiz did well last season. They finished 14th in the La Liga table and escaped the dreaded drop to the Segunda Division. It is likely that they could face a similar situation this time around.

Sergio González’s side are 16th in the La Liga table at the moment with 10 points from 13 matches. They are only two points above the relegation zone.

Cadiz will take on Real Mallorca away from home in La Liga on Wednesday evening. This past weekend, they lost 3-0 to Real Madrid at home in the league. It came after a 1-0 loss at the hands of Getafe on the road. Earlier this month, Cadiz beat Barcelona on penalties in the Copa del Rey.

Team News:

Cadiz are likely to line up in a 5-4-1 formation. Jeremias Ledesma will be in goal for the visiting team. Joseba Zaldua, Victor Chust, Fali, Javi Hernandez and Lucas Pires will be the five defenders. Robert Navarro, Alex Fernandez, Ruben Alcaraz and Chris Ramos will be the four midfielders. Roger Marti will lead the line.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Celta de Vigo have scored 14 goals in 14 La Liga matches.
  • Celta de Vigo have conceded 24 goals in 14 La Liga matches.
  • Cadiz have scored 10 goals in 13 La Liga games.
  • Cadiz have conceded 20 goals in 13 La Liga games.
