Celta Vigo vs Barcelona: How to watch TV

7

Barcelona travel to face Celta Vigo this weekend and want to stop their decline in the table after Ronald Koeman’s departure.

The Dutchman was fired just over a week ago after a 1-0 loss to Rayo Vallecano, while interim manager Sergi Barjuan has overseen a draw against Alaves and a narrow victory over Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League.

Barça are currently in the middle of the table, after three games without a win in La Liga, and they are behind the surprise leaders Real Sociedad with nine points.

Here is a 90 minute preview of their trip to Celta.

Jose Manuel Fontan and Kevin Vazquez are likely to be available for Celta this weekend as a boost for Eduardo Coudet.

The hosts, as it turns out, will have a whole set of players to choose from if they are available, and will enjoy their chances of getting a surprise.

Sergio Aguero will not appear for Barcelona in the next few months after suffering chest pain in the draw against Alaves.

The Argentine is on the road to recovery and has thankfully been released from hospital after undergoing heart tests. With him on the sidelines are Gerard Pique, teenage sensation Pedri, Ronald Araujo and Martin Braithwaite, who all have their own injuries.

In another blow, Ousmane Dembele is again unavailable after receiving a stretch from the hoarding.

Celta Vigo (4-1-3-2): Dituro; Mallo, Murillo, Aidoo, Galan; Tapia; Mendez, Denis Suarez, Nolito; Iago Aspas, Santi Mina

Barcelona (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Garcia, Lenglet, Alba; Busquets, de Jong, Gavi; Demir, Memphis Depay, Fati

Celta Vigo reigned supreme when these two sides met at the end of last season, with the support of Santi Mina at Camp Nou who ended Barcelona’s title jump with a 2-1 win.

Barça have had the superior head-to-head in this match since the turn of the century, but it is not the all-conquering record you think it can be. The Catalan giants have 16 wins from 36 meetings, they have also drawn and lost ten times respectively.

The uncertainty about Xavi’s immediate successor Koeman has not helped Barcelona’s performance, and the situation is now becoming critical in La Liga.

Barça simply can not afford to slip further from the pace, but injuries could prove to be their downfall against a Celta team that can boast a nasty defense despite a relatively slow start to the season.

It can be completely square when everything is said and done.

Prediction: Celta Vigo 1-1 Barcelona
