Celta vs Alaves Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
The two sides that are yet to pick up points this season will collide at Estadio de Balaídos in Vigo, where Celta welcome Alaves. The two sides have finished the season in the middle of the table in the previous season, but this time around their goals are slightly different.
Celta Vigo had a memorable 2016/17 campaign when they reached UEFA Europa League and nearly knocked Manchester United out. However, due to European obligations they weren’t focused on the domestic league in the second half of the campaign, so this season they will only compete in Copa del Rey and La Liga. Their goal is to get back into the UEFA zone as soon as possible. However, the things aren’t looking good for Celta. In the opening two rounds, they registered two defeats. At first, Real Sociedad outplayed them at Balaidos with 2-3, followed by the 2-1 defeat from Real Betis. Celta acquired Emre Mor, the extraordinary ex-Dortmund winger and they will have the responsibility to develop the Turkish talent.
Alaves are in the similar problems as Celta Vigo. Zero points from the opening two rounds points towards the fate that experts were predicting for Alaves – fight for the survival. Alaves were bested by Leganes and Barcelona, and they are yet to score a goal this season. Inefficiency in the attack can turn out as a huge problem for Alaves as they mostly won with a one-goal margin in the previous season. Fernando Pacheco has made the most saves from long shots in La Liga this season, with 6. Christian Santos has lost the most aerial duels in La Liga this season, with 18.
The two sides collided four times in the last season. Celta triumphed 1-0 at Balaidos, with Alaves returning the favor 3-1. In Copa del Rey tie, the first match in Vigo ended without goals while Alaves sealed the appearance in the final after the 1-0 home victory.
Celta don't have lots of missing players for the match against Alaves. John Guidetti is injured and he can't play on this match. All other players are fully fit and ready to play.
On the other side Alaves have two missing players for the match. Víctor Laguardia and Héctor Hernández are injured and they will not play in Vigo. All other players are available to play and all of them will play aggressive from the first minute.
Possible starting lineups
Celta: Alvarez; Jonny, Fontas, Cabral, Mallo; Wass, Radoja, Sanchez; Sisto, Gomez, Aspas
