Team News: Celta Vigo
Celta Vigo boss Eduardo Coudet will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns at all before this game owing to a completely healthy group ready to go.
Team News: Levante
Levante boss Paco López has some current player fitness concerns. José Campaña (Muscle Injury) and Nikola Vukcevic (Lumbago) will not be playing here.
We feel that Levante may not find it easy to breach the defence of this Celta Vigo lineup who we reckon should be able to grind out a win.
That’s why our selection here is for a good battle with a 1-0 advantage for Celta Vigo when the referee blows for full-time.
Should be interesting.
