Sport Santander League
RAFA VALERO / PABLO VILLA
Celta and Rayo will serve the penultimate dish on Saturday in a game that will measure two teams with good ball handling and many rising players. The locals aspire to add a new positive result that will keep them away from the dangerous area against a Rayo that wants to add three by three. Carvalhal must reinvent himself on the right side, while Iraola arrives with all his available artillery.
- How does Celtic arrive?: Celta comes into the game in good shape, after having added eleven of the last eighteen points at stake. It does so with the absences, due to injury, of Marchesn and Mingueza and, due to suspension, of Tapia and Hugo Mallo. Kevin is emerging as a starter on the right side and the doubt centers on the striker who will accompany Iago Aspas, a position for which Larsen and Seferovic are fighting for another week. The rest, the regulars of the last days. The calm that the Celtics may have in the last third of the season and the points for permanence will pass through Vigo.
- How does the Lightning arrive: Those from Iraola accumulate four games without knowing the victory and need to rediscover the path of victory to remain hooked on the top of the table. To do this, they must defeat Celta for the first time at the hands of the Gipuzkoan coach. If successful, they would also put an end to a decade of drought in Vigo. Catena returns after serving a suspension, while Saveljich will be out at the last minute. Camello aims to remain as a great offensive reference ahead of Ral de Toms.
- The duel of the party: Gabri Veiga vs. Isi Palazn. Two of the names that appear on Luis de la Fuente’s pre-list for his first call as coach, two of the most unbalancing players in the League. The Galician participated in 11 goals (eight goals and three assists) for 10 by the rayista (five and five).
Sport Rubn Jimnez’s prediction
Rayo is in a major hole and, as long as they don’t see the danger up close, they may be at the mercy of hungrier teams like Celta, who are going to play at home until the end of the season to stay in the First Division.
