CEV vs ATH Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Celta Vigo vs Athletic Bilbao Laliga Live Score August 28


CEV vs ATH Dream11: It is a northern derby between the Galicians of Celta Vigo and the Basque Athletic. Eduardo Coudet’s Celta have been one of the most entertaining teams in the league since his appointment in November of 2020. An interchangeable and energetic attack that boasts Iago Aspas, Nolito, Santi Mina and Denis Suarez comes up against an Athletic side coached by Marcelino. Marcelino had been appointed as the successor to Gaizka Garitano in January 2021 in order to evolve their style of play and that has most certainly been the case with a lot more emphasis on attack; even if that attack can be a touch toothless at times. Both teams scoring seems a likely bet for this one.

Date: August 28, Saturday
Kick-Off: 8:30 PM (IST)
Venue: Abanca-Balaidos, Vigo
