THE PREDICTION

Celta Vigo slipped to defeat at the weekend against Villarreal as they conceded a 92nd minute goal which dealt them a hammer blow in their survival hopes. They will be targeting this match as one that they simply have to get something from. They are not helped by the absence of inspirational skipper Hugo Mallo who is out injured but they do have plenty of options to rotate and field a strong side. They left a number of key players on their bench for the Villarreal game but the likes of Smolov, Denis Suarez, Yokuslu and potentially Sisto could all come in to keep the side fresh. Valladolid will not quite have the same strength in depth to rotate which may hamper them here so the visitors can bounce back and take at least a point from this game.
