The last round of LaLiga this season, will witness the mid-table sides Valencia playing host to their neighboring Celta Vigo at Estadio de Mestalla this Saturday.
Celta Vigo is at the 10th spot on the standing with 46 points from 37 games. They won 12 times in the league while drew on 10 and lost on 15 other occasions. The visitors score goals but they tend to concede more of the same which hints that some defensive adjustments is needed.
The team led by Eduardo Coudet comes motivated for this match after a 1-0 home win against Elche. Throughout their latest 6 matches, Celta Vigo have found the net 9 times therefore earning them the goals per game average of 1.5.
On the other hand, Valencia resides just below at the 11th position on the table with 45 points. Of the 37 matches played, they won 10 times in the league while drew on 15 and lost on 12 other occasions. Los Che have nothing to play for in this dead rubber of a match as they could neither get a European spot nor will fall into relegation at this point.
Valencia will play in this fixture coming off the back of a 1-1 LaLiga draw against Espanyol. Their sum of goals stands at just 3 against opposing sides during their previous 6 fixtures. In those meetings, Los Che have also seen the number of goals scored against them come to 8.
