  • Date: Sunday, May 5th, 2024
  • Time: 2:15 pm (GMT)
  • Venue: Estadio Municipal de Balaídos

Celta Vigo has had an unpleasant season so far with very few wins in the bag. The team has failed to be consistent and sit in 17th place five points above the drop zone. However, after a 3-0 loss to  Deportivo Alaves last weekend, they would have to give it all against the yellow submarine.

Claudio Giráldez ‘s men will be way more satisfied to end the season with top-flight football next season, but they have to grab maximum points from the remaining games to reduce the turbulence on the final days of the campaign.

On the other hand, Villarreal will aim to build on their back-to-back victories over Almeria and Rayo Vallecano. Unbeaten in their last 6 travels in La Liga with four wins and two draws, this fixture will more likely be a walk in the park for the yellow submarine.

Sitting comfortably in 9th at the top half of the table Villarreal will aim to finish the season on a high. Marcelino García’s men have 45 points from 33 games with just 4 points separating them from 7th place Real Betis. However, they will be ambitious to spread their wings and climb up the table aiming for a better season finish.
