Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Celta Vigo will be aiming to extend their winning run to four games when they take on Getafe in the La Liga round 36. Os Celeste have been scoring goals for fun in La Liga of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Keep in mind, though, that both Nestor Araujo and Facundo Ferreyra are banned for the match, while important attacker Iago Aspas remains in the recovery room.
Los Azulones, on the other hand, are only four points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that they are desperate to grab something from the match. Given the number of absentees in the home team, we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. David Timor is sidelined through suspension, while all Djene Dakonam, Dario Poveda, Cucho, and Erick Cabaco miss the game with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Nolito):
Widely known as Nolito, Manuel Agudo Durán is a Spanish forward born on 15 October 1986 in Sanlucar de Barrameda, who has had an unconventional path to stardom. The highly rated footballer did not go through Barcelona’s famous La Masia youth academy, but he rather joined the B side in 2008 and went on to show a great deal of potential.
Nolito also made a couple of performances for the senior side, but ultimately left for Benfica in an attempt to secure regular playing time. That proved an excellent decision as the winger produced some scintillating showings at Estadio da Luz, and following a loan spell with Granada, he returned to La Liga to sign for Celta Vigo. During his time at Balaidos, Nolito developed into one of league’s leading footballers, usually playing on the left wing and wreaking havoc after cutting inside.
The experienced footballer scored almost 40 league goals in first 100 appearances for the Sky Blues, while also breaking into the Spain national team, and despite making his La Furia Roja debut at the age of 28, he quickly became an important player for the side.
