Team News

Celta Vigo
Barcelona
  • Joseph Aidoo and Willot Swedberg are the only injury concerns for Celta Vigo; Jonathan Bamba returns after winning AFCON with Ivory Coast.
  • Renato Tapia, now doing a job in central defence, has won back to back player of the month awards for Celta - indicative of how heavily relied upon he is at the club.
  • Vitor Roque returns from his suspension and should be available against Celta on Saturday night.
  • Barcelona's injury list could shorten in their favour by the end of the week, with Raphinha, Ilkay Gundogan, Inigo Martinez, and Marc Andre Ter Stegen all to be assessed to play.
  • Despite Barca's struggles, Robert Lewandowski seems to be finding his form this season, equalling David Villa's 48 goals in almost half as many matches.

Prediction

  • Barcelona travel a few miles across town on Saturday evening to face Celta Vigo in the Derbi Barcelonì. Celta Vigo last won the derby in 2021, with Barcelona winning consecutively four times since that year. A Joao Cancelo wonder goal on his debut was the only thing separating the two last time out.
  • Although Celta have only one win in five, winning at home last at the beginning of January, an unlikely victory would see them go six points from the drop zone.
  • Assuming Atleti drop points to Las Palmas in the afternoon, Barca could solidify themselves further in third place, building on their three point gap with El Roji Blancos.

  • Lewandowski now as co-firer of Xavi will score again.

  • @koziol.mutant how is he a co-firer of Xavi when he likes Xavi and personally asked him to reconsider leaving the club? btw, Xavi wasn't fired, leaving is his decision
