Match date: 30/04/2021

Celta Vigo takes on Levante at the Balaidos Stadium tonight in a match where there is not much at stake. Normally in the end of the season I don’t like games where there is not something at stake as they are similar to friendlies, but tonight I will make an exception.

The reasons why I am backing Celta here is that Levante currently is out of form and with important absences. Levante are in 12th place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have slumped after a strong start to their season. Levante has lost 5 of their last 6 in LaLiga with the exception of a victory over bottom club Eibar.

They are coming to this match after a 1-0 defeat to one of the poorest teams at the moment in La Liga Elche and that surely won’t help them mentally. It seems that after securing their place in La Liga and after an exhausting season they have switched off, but another reason is also the missing of important players in the last matches. In recent weeks they have been without important first team players in the likes of Radoja and Vukcevic who will also be absent tonight. Beside them, Levante will miss again Jose Campana one of their most talented players who has missed the most part of this season. Mickael Malsa is suspended for Levante meaning they are missing four midfielders here with Campana, Vukcevic and Radoja out injured.

Celta Vigo on the other hand are in 10th place currently and for them has been also a season full of inconsistency and a bit disappointing as they have talented players. They come into this game following a 2-1 home win over Osasuna, but just one victory in six games prior to that ended any hopes of them challenging for Europe and shows their inconsistency too.

Nevertheless Celta Vigo have excellent players in their ranks but have been unable to justify their potential this season. The likes of Iago Aspas and Santi Mina can be lethal on their day and will want to make their mark on this match and facing Levante at this moment could be a good possibility to win and mathematically secure their place in La Liga, although I don’t think they risk at all.

Celta tonight will miss  Hugo Mallo, Emre Mor, Sergio Alvarez and Ruben Blanco due to injury. Santi Mina has recovered from his knock and will be able to feature in this game.

To sum up, both teams have been inconsistent this season and will need to win this game, but due to the poor form of Levante and their missing players, I believe that Celta are the better team at the moment and will be able to win this game.
