Team News

  • Real Zaragoza were unsurprisingly defeated at the Camp Nou last weekend but remain relatively well-positioned and could go into the top-half with a win this evening.
  • Full-backs Abraham and Cristian Sapunaru return from suspension so Manolo Jimenez will be able to resort to his more favoured backline with Javier Paredes moving back into the middle of the back four.
  • Adam Pinter will move forward into midfield, whilst there should be a return for Helder Postiga up front after he was dropped last weekend.
  • Celta haven't won in five league games and have yet to take a point on the road this season after six straight defeats.
  • Iago Aspas has though been one of the few brights sparks for the Galicians and he will certainly start after explaining his anger towards manager Paco Herrera after being substituted in the 1-1 draw with Mallorca last weekend.
  • Aspas played in the cross for Park Chu-Young to score his second goal for Celta in that game and Herrera must decide whether to stick with the South Korean or whether there will be a return to the starting line-up for Mario Bermejo.

Prediction

  • Celta have often not got the results their performances have deserved so far this season, but they do appear to be a soft touch at times away from home and Zaragoza now have threatening offensive players in the likes of Postiga, Victor and Paco Montanes to expose that.
  • Jimenez's men have won four out of the last six games, losing only to Barcelona and Real Madrid, and will be confident of getting their fourth successive win in all competitions at La Romareda.
