Real Valladolid is welcoming Celta Vigo to Jose Zorrilla in round 3 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Valladolid is in terrible form, and they have won only 1 of their last 6 games. With only 1 point, Valladolid is in 12th place in the standings. In their latest LaLiga game against Betis on the road, Valladolid has had 44% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 76% of the correct passes. Valladolid wasn’t good in this game, on either end, and they have lost this match 2-0. Valladolid has scored only 1 goal in LaLiga so far, and Herrero was the goalscorer. Sergi Guardiola has added 1 assist. Olivas, Alcaraz, Hacem Gassama, and De Sousa are all injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this match. Valladolid has a decent last season, but their offense was terrible with only 32 scored goals. Valladolid ended the season in 13th place, far from the relegation zone. It looks like this season will not be as good, but there is still a lot of time for Valladolid to turn things around. There are plenty of teams that are weaker than Valladolid, but not always the weaker teams get relegated.
Celta has been decent as of late, and they haven’t lost any of their last 4 games. In LaLiga, Celta is still undefeated, and they are looking good on both ends. Celta is in 4th place in the standings with 4 points, 2 scored goals, and 1 conceded goal. In their most recent match in LaLiga against Valencia at home, Celta was the better team with 51% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 82% of the correct passes. With 1 goal in each half, Celta has deservedly won this match 2-1. Iago Aspas has scored both goals for Celta, while Nolito added 1 assist. The last season wasn’t great for Celta, and they can be lucky to have stayed in LaLiga, but Celta is looking good in this early season, and it looks like this season might be a bit easier for Celta Vigo. Alvarez and Blanco are both injured, but they are both goalkeepers, which means coach Oscar Garcia has his strongest lineup at his disposal, and when Celta is complete, they are a dangerous team. I like Celta, and I like the way they are playing, and I see Celta in the top half of the standings this season.
The trends are heavily on Celta’s side in this matchup, and not only they are the better team here, but Celta is also in far better form than Valladolid. When playing at home, Valladolid has not lost to Celta in their last 3 games, but I think that run stops here. Valladolid has a lot of injury problems, and that has reflected on their form. I’m sticking with Celta on the road.
