Stadium: Balaídos (Vigo)
These teams tend to play each other productively. Now they both need a win. The options to bet on seem obvious as ever.
So what can be said about Celta? The team lost 4 of their last 6 matches. They kind of tried to make up for it by winning two games in a row. However, they lost to Elche in the previous round. Coudet hasn’t been fired yet, but it seems to happen any time soon. Well, at least if Celta doesn’t start winning.
Yes, we should think about winning, given that they are to play Sevilla. Last round, Celta was beaten by the bottom-seeded (as of this season) Granada. And Sevilla is not an unbeatable team at all. Celta will go forward, there’s almost no doubt about that.
Sevilla will go forward too! Because they also need a victory. Last round the team suffered an unexpected loss to Granada and they became even closer to leaving the Champions League zone. Even if they draw with Celta now, they are bound to fall out of the top 4.
Lopetegui is a pragmatic coach, but now he needs to put that pragmatism in a slightly different perspective. They need to beat Celta on the road, and there’s absolutely no doing that by parking the bus. Sevilla will not get defensive!
