Celta Vigo will welcome Villarreal to the Estadio de Belaidos this Saturday for their 28th La Liga games of the season.
The home team who are currently embroiled in a relegation will be hoping that three months enforced break will help them finish the season on a high.
They head into the game unbeaten in their last five league games. With nine points from their last six games, Celta will fancy their chances against a Villarreal side that has not won a game in three tries.
Meanwhile, the Yellow Submarines who sit in eight places will be looking to return to form following a dismal last five games in which they picked up just four points.
Sergio Alvarez is the only long-term injury doubt for the home team, while midfielder Denis Suarez is likely to miss out following a recent return from injury.
Javier Calleja has just a few injury headaches with Bruno Soriano, Ramiro Guerra, and Ramiro Funes Mori are still out with long term injuries. Ruben Pena misses the clash through suspension.
Head To Head
The last five meetings between both sides have seen Celta win three times with the two wins for Villarreal. The weekend host also ran out 3:1 winners at the Estadio de la Ceramica in the reverse fixture this season.
Celta Vigo last five games in all competition: DDWDW
Villarreal last five games in all competition: LLLWD
Celta head into this tie on the back of a six-game unbeaten run (w2, D4) at home in the league.
They will be looking to record just their second home win against their Saturday opponent since 2006/2007 season.
But with ten goals scored in 13 home games—the worst in the league—the hosts could have a lot of work in their hands going into this tie.
Villarreal meanwhile are one of the highest-scoring sides on the road this season with 18 goals in 14 away
However, they will have to sort a defense that has kept two away clean sheets in the league this season. Their woeful defense away from home means that both teams have failed to score in just 21% of their away games this season. So we can expect both teams to score this weekend.
Both teams to score/Yes @3/4
First Half Draw/Villarreal to win second half @ 11/2
Villarreal to win @ 7/4
