Celta Vigo Vs Girona Preview, Team News, and Lineup

Initial Observations

Tuesday night’s trip to an ineffective and struggling Celta Vigo team will see Girona continue their fight for a European finish in La Liga. With three games remaining, the visitors are eighth in the standings, two points behind Athletic Bilbao in seventh position, while Celta are 14th, just four points above the relegation zone. With three games remaining, the Sky Blues are only four points above the bottom three in the league and hence still need to be secure from the prospect of relegation.

Since the end of April, Celta has yet to win in Spain’s top division; they’ve dropped to the bottom of the standings after losing their past four matches against Villarreal, Getafe, Valencia, and Athletic. In contrast, Girona is actively vying for a spot in the Europa Conference League in the order playoff round in Spain’s first division. Currently ranked eighth in the table, they are only two points behind Athletic Bilbao in seventh place.

The White and Reds are attempting to break a record this season since they have never placed higher than tenth in La Liga and gained promotion to the top division through the previous year’s Segunda Division playoffs. Between April 25 and May 4, Michel’s team defeated Real Madrid, Sevilla, and Mallorca three times before tying 2-2 with Real Sociedad. However, they enter this match coming off a 2-1 setback to Villarreal.

Celta Vigo Team News

Iago Aspas and Agustin Marchesin are both scheduled to miss this match for Celta due to injuries, however, Renato Tapia is eligible after serving a ban against Athletic.

Because of an injury, Fran Beltran had to be replaced midway through Saturday’s encounter. Since the midfielder is expected to miss this match, Gabri Veiga is likely to move back to a deeper position. Haris Seferovic, who was questionable with an injury against Athletic but came off the bench for the second half, might start again on Tuesday.Also Read:Barcelona celebrates their title as Real Sociedad aims of returning to UCL.

Girona Team News

Oriol Romeu, who missed the match against Villarreal due to a ban, will be back for Girona, although Aleix Garcia, Borja Garcia, Toni Villa, and Ibrahima Kebe are still out injured. The majority of the players that entered the field at the start of that game should remain in the starting lineup today since head coach Michel will have been delighted with his team’s overall outcome against Villarreal, who earned each of the three ideas in the 94th minute. The last third of the pitch will once again be occupied by Valentin Castellanos, who has 13 league goals this year. Yan Couto and Rodrigo Riquelme will play in the wide spots.

Celta Vigo’s possible starting lineup:

Villar; Vazquez, Aidoo, Nunez, Galan; Rodriguez, Veiga; Perez, Cervi; Seferovic, Larsen

Girona’s possible starting lineup:

Gazzaniga; A Martinez, Bueno, Juanpe, Gutierrez; Romeu, D Lopez; Couto, Tsygankov, Riquelme; Castellanos
