    VAL vs CEV Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups


    There’s no escaping for Celta Vigo as their tough start to the new season see them face another top team in Valencia this weekend at Balaidos.

    Celticos fans must not be happy after the 2019-20 La Liga fixtures were announced, handing them Real Madrid, Valencia, and Sevilla as their first three opponents.

    But Vigo played fairly well but were outgunned eventually by the supreme quality of Los Blancos. We expected a repeat of that when the Los Che turn up at Balaidos this weekend.

    Match Details:

    The La Liga match will be played between Celta Vigo and Valencia at Balaídos, in Vigo, Spain. The ground has a capacity of 29,000.
    The game will start at 12:30 AM (IST), on Saturday, August 25.

    • Juan Hernandez, David Junca and Okay Yokuslu remain on the sidelines and won’t be available for selection for the Valencia match.

    Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

    • Hugo Mallo, Santi Mina, and goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez have been cleared by Vigo’s medical staff and are available for selection here.
    • Mallo could come at the right-back position, replacing Kevin Vazquez, while Santi Mina may be given the nod ahead of Gabriel Fernandez in the attacking position.
    • Though Sergio Alvarez is back fit now, we expect Ruben Blanco to start in goal here.

    Celta Vigo Probable XI:

    Blanco (GK), Olaza, Araujo, Costas, Mallo, Suarez, Beltran, Lobotka, Mendez, Aspas, Mina / Fernandez

    Valencia FC Team News:

    • Francis Coquelin will be serving a one-game suspension following his sending off in the opening La Liga game of the season.
    • While Alvaro Medran is still a doubt and will be monitored before the game.
    • No fresh injury concerns for Marcelino’s team.

    Possible ins or outs of this game:

    • Valencia are set to welcome Jose Gaya and Dani Parejo following the completion of their bans. The duo should be slotted back straight into the left-back and midfield, respectively.
    • Geoffrey Kondogbia is expected to fill in for the suspended Coquelin in the central midfield.
    • Maxi Gomez may have to wait for his full debut for Valencia and is likely to come off the bench only.

    Valencia Probable XI:

    Cillessen (GK), Wass, Garay, Paulista, Gaya, Guedes, Kondogbia, Parejo, Soler, Moreno, Gameiro

    Likely to score:

    • For Celta Vigo: Iago Aspas, Santi Mina
    • For Valencia: Rodrigo Moreno, Kevin Gameiro

    Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

    Rodrigo: Had a strong 2018-19 season as he racked up 8 goals and 6 assists throughout the season.

    The 28-year-old will be looking for another strong season again with the Los Che.

    Last Season’s Stats:

    • Games: 33
    • Goals: 08
    • Assists: 06

    Iago Aspas: The most vital cog in this team. His absence at the back end of the season almost cost Vigo their La Liga status.

    But he is fit now and will be looking for another strong start in front of the goal.

    Last Season’s Stats:

    • Games: 40
    • Goals: 20
    • Assists: 06

    Brais Mendez: The 22-year-old is one of Vigo’s prized assets. He can be a bit consistent but that’s understandable for his age. Expect a good game from him considering Valencia’s problems on the wings.

    Last Season’s Stats:

    • Games: 31
    • Goals: 06
    • Assists: 07

    Kevin Gameiro: A proven talent at the very top level. His versatility and the ability to contribute to the team’s cause makes him a very important part of this team. The former Sevilla man must be feeling good after scoring in the last game.

    Last Season’s Stats:

    • Games: 33
    • Goals: 06
    • Assists: 01

    Suggested combination:

    VAL vs CEV Dream11 potential winner:
