Date: Monday, 25 April, 2016
Start time: 19:30 GMT
The team of Celta will have to prove their ambitions to participate in the Europa League in the home game against Granada on Monday. The match of the 35th round of the Primera Liga is on April 25 from 19:30 at “Estadio de Balaidos” in Vigo.
The Sky Blues are on 6th place in the standings with a total of 54 points as has the fifth Athletic Bilbao. Celta behind six points from the Champions League zone, so place in most commercial European club tournament on the agenda before them, but rather this goal is unattainable, as the program team is not so easy. Besides the match against Granada, the end of the season they have matches with Athletic, Malaga, and Atletico Madrid.
Celta will defeat in their last seven games at “Estadio do Balaidos,” but many draws prevented them are ahead in the standings. In their last match at home, they failed to beat Betis (1:1) and previously made the same result against Deportivo. The victories over Real Sociedad, Levante, and Eibar indicate that the team from Vigo is in stable hosts in Primera, so their fans are hoping for three points in the upcoming match.
The elite status of Granada is questionable since the team is in 17th place with 33 points, just one more than 18th Sporting Gijon. In midweek, Granada took three precious points against Levante, beating them by 5:1 at home. It was the first win for the team of Jose Gonzalez from six matches here and it gives them a reason for optimism before the visit in Vigo. In the squad has three injured players. These are Isaac Success, Dimitri Foulquier, and Javi Marquez. All three players are very important for Granada. They have a total of 70 games this season, but in the upcoming game coach Jose Gonzalez will have to cope without them.
In the last game between the two teams ат “Estadio de Balaidos” ended up 1:1 draw. Celta hasn’t a success at home against Granada from 2013 when he won with 2:1. In the squad of Eduardo, Berizzo has not problems with injured or suspended players and expect full mobilization on their part, as have the opportunity to return to the European tournaments for the first time since the 2006/07 season.
