Match date: 31/01/2021

Seventh-placed Granada and 11-placed Celta from Vigo will meet in the 21st round of the Spanish La Liga at 6.30pm. It is a duel between two clubs whose form in the league isn't the best lately, so they are looking for a victory in wishing to return them to the desired path of success.

Granada played in the Europa League group this season and won the knockout phase and matches with Napoli in February, while in the Spanish championship they are four points behind the sixth place, which brings the European place next season (four points in the last five rounds). In February, Granada will have three very demanding games in La Liga against the leaders Atletico Madrid, Levante and Barcelona, ??so coach Diego Martinez marked today's game against Celta as very important, one that should be won at all costs and win three points.

This will also mean a very offensive approach on the pitch, and it is important for Martinez that as many as five players who didn't play in the last round in 1:3 defeat against Osasuna return to the team. Among them is the top scorer with five goals so far Luiz Javier Suarez, as well as two very important midfielders Luis Milla and Yangel Herrera, and left back Carlos Neva. All of them will be in the starting line-up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, which means that host will practically be in the strongest line-up, and only midfielder Gonalons is missing.

Celta have won only one point in the last five rounds, in the last played 1:1 against Eibar in Vigo. Coach Eduardo Coudet had a nice series after took over the team in November, but now came in the crisis and fell on 11th place. To this should be added the relegation from the Cup against Ibiza (2:5), and the main problem was poor defense, which easily concedes goals and makes many mistakes.

Also, in the last four rounds Celta was missing the best player and scorer Iago Aspas (9 goals), which was a huge handicap in attack. Aspas has recovered and is back against Granada in the first eleven, and for this match Coudet took 20 players. Sergio Alvarez and Junca are out due to injury, Denis Suarez is out for health reasons. David Costas, Olaza, Okay and Jorge Saenz are not on the list. Of these, only Suerez is a standard player, who plays in the midfield and has three assists in 18 appearances this season. The guest coach has announced an 4-1-3-2 offensive formation, a clear sign that he wants to win at a stadium, where Celta have had a lot of success over last years, and Granada haven’t won their last 5 home matches in a row against the club from Vigo.

All of the above suggests that this should be an exciting match, both clubs want to win and play in practically the strongest teams. Also, Granada with 34 goals conceded has the worst defense in the league, while Celta has conceded 31 and is the third worst in the league. In four of the last seven games of these two clubs there were three or more goals in total (last match 3:1 for Celta on November 29, 2020), and exactly two were in two. We have a right to believe that at least three balls will end up in the goalkeepers net today.

Probable first 11

Granada: Silva - Foulquier, Duarte (1 goal), Sanchez (2 goals), Neva - Herrera (2), Montoro (1) - Machis (2), Milla (1), Kenedy (2) - Javier Suarez (5).

Celta: Blanco - Mallo (1), Araujo, Murillo, Olaza - Tapia - Mendez (4), Beltran (2), Nolito (4) - Aspas (9), Santi Mina (2).

At Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes this season, Granada have six wins, two draws, and two losses in 10 Primera matches.

Celta have played on the road 10 times in the league this season, earning eight points from 30 available (W1 D5 L4).
