On May 23, Balaídos (Vigo) will host the match of the 36th round of the La Liga, in which Celta will compete with Girona. The battle will start at 19:30 CET.
The team has become more than predictable long ago. It does not aim at the European competitions any more, but it has developed a rather original recipe for survival in the Primera. In fact, its obligatory element is the replacement of a coach shortly after the start of the season – taking into account recent years, the higher mentioned event was avoided only in 2021, and as a result, Coudet had been working for two years. However, being under the pressure of new setbacks in the autumn, Eduardo was replaced. His successor, Carlos Carvalhal, ensured clear progress during the winter, and the questions about the risk of relegation to the Segunda had effectively disappeared by April. And, as it usually happens in such cases, “the Galicians” almost stopped playing. If we exclude a home 1-0 score in the battle against Elche, which is the main outsider, then there were continuous defeats, which, however, do not interfere with maintaining a sufficient distance from the top three outsiders. When the team lost to Athletic, the mood of the players, who are already waiting for the holidays, was not particularly spoiled.
The club, after debuting in the Primera, has been struggling for the right to return there for several years. It happened only through the play-offs a year ago. Still, these combat characteristics are useful for a newcomer to the La Liga. Instead of being a fighter for survival in the Spanish football, which had been expected by many, “the Girondins” became a real contender for the European competitions. Having received reinforcement in the person of Dynamo Kyiv, Tsygankov, in the second lap, Michel Sanchez’s wards began to take points with the grandees. Speaking about a 0-0 draw in the battle with Barcelona, the future champion was closer to be defeated. And then there were a 4-2 success against Real Madrid and a 2-0 victory in the confrontation with Sevilla – there is no surprise that the team managed to climb to the 7th, “European” place. Taking into account the higher mentioned result, it is more than painful to lose the home match against a direct competitor, Villarreal, in the 94th minute of the game.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Taking into account the performance of Girona after the previous promotion to the La Liga, it played well against Celta – the team beat the opponent twice and one match resulted in a defeat. Still, the newcomer was inferior in the home battle due to the only goal of Iago Aspas in August 2022.
Bookmakers consider Aspas and the company to be the favourite of the following battle, but they are unlikely to resist even at the home arena. Thus, we bet that the motivated “Girondins” will not lose (odd: 1.83).
