Barcelona lock horns with Celta Vigo in this high-voltage Spanish Liga game. The match is a very important game for Barca as they have fallen a tad short of table-toppers Atletico Madrid in the title race. They desperately need a win in this game to stand a chance of lifting the trophy. The match will begin at 10:00 PM (IST).
Barcelona attackers Ansu Fati and Philippe Coutinho have long term injuries and will be missing out on this game. Sergi Roberto has a tendon problem and will thus be missing out on this game.
For Celta, Jose Fontan has contracted Coronavirus and will not be able to participate in this game. Nestor Araujo and Facundo Ferreyra were flashed red cards in the previous game and thus will be missing out on this fixture.
The Catalan giants have registered 2 draws on the trot and that has derailed their title-winning chances. They are coming on the back of a 3-3 draw against Levante. Lionel Messi, Pedri and Ousmane Dembele had netted goals for Ronald Koeman’s men in that fixture. We can expect a dominant performance from Barcelona in this match.
Celta Vigo have been in impressive form off-late and have notched up 3 wins in 3 games. They defeated Getafe in their previous match and the score line read 1-0. Nolito scored the goal for them. Eduardo Coulet should be a happy manager because of these sensational performances from Celta Vigo.
