It will be completed this Monday, January 29, the twenty-first round of the Spanish Championship in its 2017/2018 season. The Balaídos stadium in Vigo will be the scene of the confrontation involving Celta and Betis. The start of the duel is scheduled for 18h (Brasília time).
Celta’s recent performance
The Vigo team made two appearances in the final rounds and returned home with six more points on the leaderboard. He beat Levante 1-0, then made it 2-1 at Real Sociedad. He thus achieved the mark of 28 points (eight wins, four draws and eight losses) rising to the seventh position. He completed the day of number 20 as the first team outside the classification zone for European tournaments, which was closed by Sevilla with four more points.
With no commitments for other tournaments, since he did not reach the continental competition in the previous season and has already been eliminated from the Spanish King’s Cup 2017/2018 edition, Celta will now be able to concentrate solely on LaLiga and try to enter the squad and elite of the classification in the 17 days that will be missing after the complement of the current one.
A relief for coach Juan Carlos Unzue as he will not only have more time to train but will have a longer recovery period for his players, which is crucial for a club that has a lean team.
He may already have an experience of how the rest of the season will be during the week. Without compromise you can prepare the team to receive the Betis with almost all its players. The only one who did not participate in all the training sessions was the Chilean midfielder Pedro Hernandez (17 matches in the 2017/2018 Spanish Championship, two goals).
The absolute owner of the team, he suffered a thigh injury that took him out of the game against Real Sociedad. He will still have to pass an exam to see if he can take action on Monday. If it is released, it will most likely be listed among the incumbents.
Current form of Betis
Sevilla’s alviverde is in a similar situation to the Vigo club. It will only have commitments by LaLiga in the last months of the season 2017/2018. The pretension is also the same as the rival: achieve the classification for an international tournament.
Although it is well below the classification table, appearing as eleventh place, the difference between them is only one point. Betis have 27 (eight wins, three draws and nine losses). So if you get a win on Monday you will be able to rise to the top.
The coach Quique Seiten, however, has a greater number of bruising problems. There are three doubts to face Celta. Defender Antonio Barragan (17 matches in the Spanish 2017/2018 Championship, without a goal) is in injury recovery phase, and attackers Joel Campbell (three games, one goal) and Antonio Sanabria (12 matches, seven goals).
