Celta Vigo v Almeria – Betting Preview

Celta Vigo Summary

Celta Vigo is experiencing a positive dynamic in recent weeks, peaking with a fine 3-1 away win over Espanyol before the international break.

Thanks to a couple of stunning 3-0 home wins in the last month against Valladolid and Rayo Vallecano, they have jumped well out of the relegation zone and start this round in 10th place.

The Galicians are in excellent form and their spirits are high. Even still, the manager insists that they will not rest until mathematically safe from relegation.

They would love to win here and try to extend the 8-point gap they have over the drop zone.

Looking at team news now which is very positive and in the outfield, they have their best side available.

Celta remains without Agustín Marchesín in goal and so Ivan Villar continues.

In very positive news, Carlos Carvalhal can recall Óscar Mingueza to the side. Squad man Solari is the only new absence.

Almeria Summary

Almería went into the international break very frustrated when they played well but was unable to beat rival Cadiz at home.

Since the season’s best 1-0 win over Barcelona, they have gone steeply backward since, losing every game until the 1-1 draw with their Andalusian rivals Cadiz.

They start the weekend sitting 2nd from bottom in la Liga 2022/23.

Rubi seems to have survived the sack having gone through the international break, a time notoriously dangerous for a manager under such heavy pressure.

This is a vital match against a once direct relegation rival in Celta Vigo. A win is the main aim, but they would take a draw considering how well Celta is playing at home.

Looking at team news now. Almeria is missing Toure in attack and there is a big doubt about Luis Suarez.

If Suarez cannot play then Ramazani will begin, and that is a big loss.
