the celtic faces the second consecutive ‘final’ for permanence after seeing their distance with the relegation places reduced to two points. The Celtics’ draw the previous day against Girona was insufficient due to the triumphs of direct rivals such as Valladolid or Getafe, so the game that awaits them this afternoon in Cádiz (7:00 p.m., Movistar LaLiga) acquires a capital importance if he does not want to risk everything on one card next Sunday against Barcelona in shots. The team coached by Carlos Carvalhal has reached this situation after wasting five consecutive days to achieve the victory of tranquility. In that section, they only took the point against the Girona team, which makes them the worst team in the category in the final part of the championship.
For the appointment against a Cádiz that is chasing the Celtics with two points less in the standings and for whom today’s game is even more transcendental, Carlos Carvalhal recovers Luca de la Torre, after serving a penalty for cards, and is confident that Iago Aspas He can return to the starting eleven while the moañés fights with his almost chronic back problems. The Portuguese coach will also have no problem including Hugo Mallo in the starting team, who suffered a fractured ulna after hitting a fence after the game against Girona. Carvalhal has taken the entire squad to the Silver Cup, including the injured Marchesín and Beltrán. The midfielder is improving his muscular problems and could reappear in the last matchday.
Carvalhal, who trusts that his team will raise the level of improvement in the game that he has appreciated in the last two days, will repeat the defensive line with Mallo, Aidoo, Unai Núñez and Galán, ahead of Iván Villar who avoided defeat against the people of Girona with a prodigious save in the final minutes. Tapia, one of those who shows the most commitment in these difficult days, will continue in the midfield, from which a controversial Óscar Rodríguez could fall if Aspas finally plays. Veiga, Carles Pérez and De la Torre would complete the core liner, in which the youth player Miguel Rodríguez could also enter on the left side as an alternative to the American. Larsen would be the companion of the moañés in attack against a Cádiz that wants to repeat the result he obtained last week against Valladolid (2-0).
The two goals from the exceltic Theo Bongonda gave life to the team coached by Sergio González, who will continue to bet on the Belgian left-footer of Congolese origin as a right inside. The people from Cádiz recover the Honduran striker ‘Choco’ Lozano, although they cannot count on the center-backs Víctor Chust and Fali, nor the midfielders Brian Ocampo and Álex Fernández, who were long-term injured, nor the attacker Chris Ramos. The yellow team has a hard time scoring. He is the one with the least hit in the category, with Elche, by adding 28 goals. The top scorer is Bongonda, with 4.
For their part, Celta is not good at Cádiz, where they won once in the First Division, and it was 35 years ago. On this occasion, the team from Vigo will be supported by several hundred fans who traveled in buses chartered by the club. Today, in Nuevo Mirandilla, he faces the penultimate opportunity to seal the permanence that he had in hand for a long time.
