CEV vs VLD Dream11: Celta Vigo will be looking for their first back-to-back wins of the season when they host Real Valladolid in La Liga at Balaídos, in Vigo Spain, on Friday night. Vigo are in the relegation zone, while Valladolid are 14th heading into this game.
Celta Vigo: Three wins, three draws and eight defeats – that’s how Celta Vigo have performed so far this season. It goes without saying that it has been another dismal season for Celta Vigo, and it came as no surprise when Vigo pulled the plug on Fran Escriba after the 0-1 home defeat against Getafe. For a team, which flirted with the European qualification not so long ago, the relegation scrimmage is the last thing this club would want to spend time fretting about.
Vigo are now under former Olympiacos and Saint-Etienne manager Óscar García Junyent, and have one win already in two games (1-3 at Villarreal last weekend). So it’s a positive start and a step in the right direction as the club aims to pull itself clear of the relegation zone.
Real Valladolid: The visitors have four wins, five draws and five defeats from the first 14 league games. Only five points separate them from bottom-three, but the advantage could trim down to only two points if Vigo wins this game, while other teams below them, like Real Betis, Eibar and RCD Mallorca, collect points as well. So they are very much in the relegation fight, and the danger looks even more palpable considering they have three defeats in the last four league games. They need to arrest their form, or else, the worst could happen.
