Celta Vigo will face Athletic Bilbao at Estadio de Balaidos on 18th round of Spanish LaLiga. This match will close the 18th round and place all teams at the table. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
Celta Vigo this year standing in the middle of the table with their ups and downs under new coach Miguel Cordoso. Miguel Cordoso had very difficult 2018 year coaching 3 teams (Rio Ave, Nantes and Celta Vigo). Hope to see his abilities suits Celtics better than any previous clubs. The Sky Blues have won less games this year than played draw and lost as a result they are in the middle with almost twice less points than 1st place. Gomez Maximiliano, Iago Aspas and Mendez Brais are players that makes results of the team. Celta Vigo losses only 2 games in half of the season once over Real Madrid and second to Alaves playing their best football now.
Athletic Bilbao now living difficult times. Club have problems in the game this year winning only 2 games in 17 Rounds of LaLiga. Los Leones trying to play defensive football and now they have 10 draws playing that tactic. Athletic Bilbao has scored 16 goals and that is second worst result after Huesca. Team have few great footballers like Iker Muniain Athletic academy player, Inaki Williams most valuable player in club, Raul Garcia is one of the most creative players of the squad, unfortunately, he will miss the match.
Celta Vigo played with Athletic Bilbao 5 times since the beginning of 2016 year. Celta won last match at home against Athletico, however before that Celta have only in 2013 while played 7 matches during these years. O Celtina has conceded at least 1 goal in every match from Los Cachorros. Athletic is very uncomfortable opponent for Celta. Last year Celta lost at home 0:3 but level of game was very different than this time.
