Team News

Valencia
Celta Vigo
  • Key midfielders Pepelu and Selim Amallah are injured and will leave Valencia at somewhat of a disadvantage against Celta on Saturday.
  • Hugo Guillamon and Sergi Canos should come in to replace the injured.
  • Hugo Duro should lead the line for this one, hoping to make good on his underperforming recent xg.
  • Celta have somewhat of an injury crisis of their own since the conclusion of the international break...
  • Hugo Sotelo will be assessed; Jonathan Bamba and Carl Starfelt have both picked up illnesses on international duty and could well be unavailable for this one.

Prediction

  • Valencia, as well as being at home, have not lost to Celta Vigo since 2020, and have been strong at home under Ruben Baraja this season.
  • Celta, meanwhile, are high on confidence following their narrow but thrilling 4-3 loss to Athletic Club. Benitez faces a fresh injury debacle though with five first team players out for this one...
  • Celta have scored eight goals in their last five matches and could well cause Valencia problems on Saturday, especially after the hosts conceded five goals against Real in their last match.
  • A draw could be on the cards here, and is probably the most sensible prediction.
