Villarreal hosts Celta
Villarreal hosts Celta at the Estadio de la Ceramica in a match from the 14th round of La Liga. In our La Liga predictions we will try to tell you some important things about this fixture in one of Europe’s strongest leagues.
Villarreal are eager to return to the Top 10 of La Liga. Right now they are 11th with 18 points, but just one point behind the 10th Osasuna. This means that if they manage to win on Sunday, they could enter the Top 10 again.
But the current form of the team is a problem right now. In their last three matches the Yellow Submarine won just one point. In the previous round Villarreal visited Mallorca, but got beaten with 1-3. The veteran Santi Cazorla scored from a penalty kick, but the team’s defense played pretty bad, allowing the hosts to score three times. The manager Javi Calleja was not satisfied with this performance.
Against Celta the Yellow Submarine will be without the suspended Raul Albiol and the injured Manu Morlanes, Alberto Moreno and Bruno.
For another season, Celta are struggling with their performance in La Liga. They are once again in the relegation zone of the league, being 18th with 9 points won. They don’t have much time to react, because they are 4 points behind the 17th Real Betis. They need points as quick as possible.
Celta have won just 2 of their 13 games in the league so far. The club’s current form is a pure disaster – five losses in the last five matches.
This is going to be a second game for Celta’s new manager Oscar Garcia. He had to debut against Barcelona at the Camp Nou, so nobody is mad at him for losing this one. But now he has to start delivering some results.
That’s our La Liga predictions for the game between Villarreal and Celta at the Estadio de la Ceramica. The hosts are clear favourites here, no doubt about that.
