Williot misses the duel against Osasuna due to injury

Injuries have hit Celta again on the eve of the trip to El Sadar. The last to join the infirmary was Williot Swedberg, with an injury to the right soleus. The Swedish striker will be out for the duel against Osasuna after suffering a grade 1 fibrillar tear (the mildest) in the soleus of his right leg in training last Monday.

The diagnostic tests carried out in recent hours on the Swedish footballer have confirmed the initial impression of the medical services. Williot will be away from the playing fields for about ten days. The attacker is definitely out for Sunday’s duel against Jagoba Arrasate’s team, but, unless some setback occurs in the next few days, he should already be recovered for the visit to Getafe at the Coliseum the following day.

“Rafa knows how to lift a locker room and I trust that he will help us get out of this slump”

Williot’s absence is added to the long-term loss of Joseph Aidoo (who is no longer expected this season) and Jonathan Bamba, who has qualified with the Ivory Coast for the quarter-finals of the African Cup, although without minutes in the last two matches of the tournament host. Bamba’s return to Vigo remains, therefore, pending the path that the Ivory Coast may have in the competition.

Rafa Benítez will be able to count on Franco Cervi for the clash against Osasuna, already recovered from the muscle injury to the right femoral biceps that occurred at the beginning of January during Betis’ visit to Balaídos. The Argentine has already entered the squad for the last league match against Girona, although he did not have any minutes.

Williot’s absence could lead to the inclusion in the squad for the El Sadar match of the youth squad Hugo Álvarez, whom Benítez returned to the reserve team last day after concluding Celta’s run in the Cup. Without Williot or Bamba, the coach has Cervi as the only specific attacker for the left wing, which could facilitate the return of the man from Ourense to the competitive dynamics of the first team.
