On May 14, Balaídos (Vigo) will host the match of the 34th round of the La Liga, in which Celta will compete with Valencia. The battle will start at 14:00 CET.
The club cannot consider the task for the season fully completed. Still, there are a number of competitors who have not fallen behind by a distance that cannot be regained yet. One way or another, “the Galicians” have already got 39 points, which is 5 points more than the best result of the outsiders – in fact, the threats are formal. Such a status is obviously the merit of Carlos Carvalhal, who, as it is customary in this team, came to the position in the autumn, in the midst of a new cycle. The Portuguese specialist provided a serious break-through in January-April, when he managed to lose only twice in 15 rounds. Nevertheless, as it often happens, as soon as enough points were taken, and it became clear that the threat of relegation into the Segunda was de facto levelled, the active performance declined. Taking into account 5 previous battles, only 1 match was won – moreover, that was a match against a deaf outsider, Elche. All other fights, not only with Real Madrid and Villarreal, but also with Mallorca and even Getafe, were defeated.
The team is in a desperate fight for survival. And this is obviously the “merit” of the owner, Peter Lim. The odious owner decided to part ways with Bordalás last summer – the mentor had been coaching for a year, but led “Los che” to the final of the Copa del Rey and made the team a strong middle peasant of the Primera. Then there was an unsuccessful choice of Gattuso, and there are no guarantees that the local legend, Baraja, will succeed. It goes without saying that the statistics improved under his rule. Moreover, 4 previous matches brought even a couple of victories, over Elche and Valladolid, and a draw in the battle against Villarreal; the only defeat was made by Cadiz. Still, “the Bats” have 34 points, and they are ahead of Getafe, taking the 17th place, which is formally a “saving” one.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
All 4 previous matches were victorious for Valencia. Speaking about the current season, there happened a 3-0 success.
Bookmakers consider Celta to be the favourite of the following battle. Still, Valencia is obliged to fight for survival and, therefore, to “cling” to points in Vigo. Thus, we bet on “both teams to score: yes” (odd: 1.87).
