Celta Vigo Aim to Stretch their Unbeaten Run Against Barca
Celta Vigo will be hosting Barcelona who is looking for every day to go back to the top of the league table. Barcelona will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Athletic Club as they travel to Estadio de Balaidos. Ivan Rakitic’s goal helped the Catalan giants keep their title hopes alive, and there is every chance the Croatia international will be recalled to the starting XI.
Frankie de Jong, Sergio Roberto, and Ousmane Dembele remain in the recovery room as they are all nursing injury but Barca is still seen as favourites to win against Celta Vigo in the Saturday’s football match.
As always, Lionel Messi will be the man to watch in the away team. Celta Vigo has been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating Alaves (6-0) and Real Sociedad (1-0) in the previous two league fixtures.
The Galician outfit is eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in La Liga, but preventing the reigning champions from finding the net will be very hard for them, a man to keep an eye on will be Turkish midfielder Okay Yokuslu who just returned from suspension for the hosts, while Sergio Busquets is banned for the visitors.
