Las Palmas vs Celta Vigo Preview

Las Palmas vs Celta Vigo 

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Gran Canaria

Date: 16th October 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

This is one of the most interesting fixture in the Spanish league season as it always has lots of goal mouth action.

Celta Vigo have been very attacking in their games this season and we expect them to maintain the same approach here while Las Palmas will try to match them and avoid any form of humiliation at home.

Paco Ayestaran has been tasked with helping Las Palmas get back on their feet.

They lost one of last season’s best players in Kelvin Prince Boateng and their manager, Quique Setien left to join Real Betis.

His replacement lasted just 6 games before giving up.

They come into this game off the back of three straight losses.

Las Palmas do have some creative players and we expect them to at least take advantage of Celta’s slack defence and get at least one goal.

Celta have been impressive away from home so far in terms of goal scoring even if the results don’t always go their way.

They have averaged 1.86 goals per game this season and more impressively they have scored an average of 2 goals per game away from home so far.

They will be without Maxi Lopez who is banned from this game but the likes of Iago Aspas and Pione Sisto are accomplished scorers and should lead the line well.
