Celta Vigo vs Deportivo Alavés match preview

Can Celta de Vigo climb out of the relegation zone?

So far, since arriving in the summer, Rafa Benítez has won just once as O Celtiña boss, this a 3-2 victory against Almería on 1 September.

Thus, no one could quite believe their eyes when, with ten minutes to go on Saturday, Celta were 2-0 up against Barcelona.

Jørgen Strand Larsen breaking the deadlock in Catalonia, before Anastasios Douvikas made the points secure…. right?

Well, wrong! Barça scored thrice in the final eight minutes, thereby pulling off a remarkable comeback at Estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc.

This crushing defeat means it’s four loses out of six for os Celestes, who remain in the drop zone, desperate for all three points here.

That’s now back-to-back defeats for Luis García Plaza’s team, who’ve lost all three away matches thus far, beaten by Cádiz, Getafe and Rayo Vallecano.

Celta de Vigo will certainly hope this trend continues at Balaídos.
