Celta Vigo is hosting Levante at Municipal de Balaidos in round 37 in Spanish LaLiga.
Celta is in 16th place in the standings with 36 points, 4 points above the relegation zone, but 1 more win in their last two games and Celta will be safe in another, for Celta, hard season. After the restart, Celta started well, but they haven’t won any of their last 5 games in LaLiga which have made their season a lot more complicated. Celta’s biggest problem this season was the lack of offense and Celta has scored only 35 goals so far, while they have conceded 46 goals, which isn’t that bad. Iago Aspas has scored 13 goals for Celta so far this season, while Santi Mina added 5 goals. Denis Suarez added 5 assists. Alvarez, Junca, Suarez, and Blanco are all injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this match. In their most recent LaLiga match against Osasuna on the road, Celta has had 48% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and 71% of the correct passes. Celta has lost this match 2-1. The good news for Celta is that in the last game of the season they will play against Espanyol, a team that is already relegated, which means Celta could count on some points from that game.
Levante has had some good moments in LaLiga this season, and they are in 12th place in the standings with 43 points, far away from the relegation zone. Levante hasn’t won any of their last 4 games, and they can be lucky they had a solid first half of the season which kept them away from the relegation zone. In their latest LaLiga game against Athletic Bilbao at home, Levante has had 56% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 2 corner kicks, and 81% of the correct passes. Levante was losing 0-2 at the half-time, but they were able to score a consolation goal in the 71st minute of the game. Levante has lost this match 1-2. Offensively, Levante was decent with 43 scored goals, while their defense was not good, and Levante has conceded 51 goals this season. Roger Marti has scored 11 goals for Levante so far this season, while Mayoral added 7 goals. Jose Campana has 7 assists. Lopez is the only injured player for Levante, while Martinez is still questionable. It doesn’t matter in which place will Levante end the season, as long it’s outside the relegation zone, and that goal has been accomplished for Levante.
Celt Vigo is not a better team than Levante, but they need this win more than Levante does. Neither Celta nor Levante are in a good form, but goals have been pretty consistent when these two teams meet. I will take a stab at Celta and goals in this game.
