Celta Vigo vs Sevilla
Spanish La Liga
Date: 7th April 2018, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz).
Celta Vigo welcome Sevilla in a potential 6 pointer for Europa League spots. Both teams are sitting outside the zone with Sevilla just missing out on top six on the basis of an inferior goal-difference with their Andalusian rival Real Betis. Meanwhile, Celta are 6 points adrift of their Saturday’s visitors. Neither sides have the potential to climb up to the top four.
Sevilla have European commitments in the coming week and they have a big game as they are travelling away to Munich to overturn a 2-1 defeat. This might force their head-coach to rest some key players in the weekend’s trip to Galicia. Their form card doesn’t look good with no win coming from the last three games. Yet, their last La Liga match is a morale boosting 2-2 draw against the run away leaders FC Barcelona.
Celta on the other hand are on a three match win-less run as well. But, they are quite a threat while playing at the Balaidos. They have lost just 3 of their 14 home games this season and are unbeaten in the last six.
