Celta Vigo vs Getafe – After suffering a devastating 4-1 loss to Real Valladolid in midweek, Celta Vigo returns to action right away against Getafe. The team from Northern Spain has been struggling recently; after 10 games, they are only two points above the relegation zone following that thrashing, which was their third straight league defeat (W3, D1, L6).

With a mixed record at the Balados this LL campaign (W2, D1, L2), it’s difficult to tell what kind of performance supporters will see next. Whether Celta avenges that loss here is anyone’s guess.

Due to Celta’s bad performance, manager Eduardo Coudet has received harsh criticism for the first time since his appointment. Despite this, the Argentine remained upbeat and said after the Valladolid loss that “luck wasn’t with them.” The fact that Celta has ten points at this point, matching their total from the previous season when they finished comfortably in mid-table, doesn’t come as a surprise.

Celta Vigo vs Getafe- Betting Analysis

Getafe is dealing with its own dropzone drama; as a result of last Tuesday’s 2-2 tie with Athletic Club, their winless streak has grown to four games (D2, L2). Getafe has just managed two victories in this LL season (D3, L5), but they won’t be paying much attention to concerns about their survival chances just yet since they didn’t have a single win after ten games previous season (D2, L8) and yet managed to avoid relegation!

The absence of Carles Aleá, a midfielder who has started every LL game for Getafe this season and who also scored in their midweek tie with Athletic, might be a setback. Aleá will now serve a suspension after receiving multiple cards. Their chances of improving on their dismal away top-flight record of just two victories from their previous 26 league away trips may be harmed by his absence, but the fact that one of those victories was a 2-0 victory here back in April should give them more confidence!

Players to keep an eye on: Iago Aspas, who scored in each of Celta’s first four league games, has scored only once in his last six LL outings, but it did come in their most recent home game. Enes Ünal may be the go-to player for the visitors in the final third considering his four goal-related contributions this season (G2, A2), including an assist last time out.
