Celta Vigo – Almeria Predictions and Preview

  • With Celta Vigo still entrenched in a battle for their top-flight survival, supporters continue to call for boss Rafael Benítez’s resignation. Once more, they’ve fallen on deaf ears and the Spaniard has called for everybody to “work together” to stay in La Liga, yet a 2-2 draw with fellow strugglers Cádiz last time out left the Sky Blues with just one win from their last seven league outings (D2, L4), suggesting not everyone is pulling in the same direction.
  • Hopes of turning their form around at Estadio de Balaídos, where the hosts have lost four successive matches in the same season for the first time since May 2017, may be somewhat forlorn. And dissenting voices will only mount if Celta fail to end that run against rock-bottom of the table Almería, though they have at least won six of the last ten H2Hs (D2, L2).
  • That doesn’t bode well for the visitors, who having avoided the drop by only a solitary point in 2022/23, are sinking without a trace in their second season back in the top-flight. Incredibly, Gaizka Garitano’s side remain winless in the league in the current campaign (D9, L17), and although they have drawn their last three matches, sit a whopping 12 points from safety.
  • Garitano is confident performances are better than the bare results suggest, stating his team deserve more “reward” for how they are playing after an impressive 2-2 draw against Atlético Madrid last week. Supporters may carry little hope of finally finding that elusive win on the road though, given the Rojiblancos had lost eight successive away fixtures across all competitions until a 1-1 draw against relegation rivals Granada in mid-February.
  • Players to watch: Celta’s Iago Aspas, attempting to net in a third successive game for the first time since September 2022, has scored five of his last six goals before half time. He will be attempting to outgun exciting 19-year old Luka Romero, who having joined Almería on loan from AC Milan in January, marked his full debut with a brace in the draw with Atlético.
  • Hot stat: Celta have conceded a division-high 13 goals in the final ten minutes of league matches this season.
