CEV vs OSA Dream11 Match Prediction: Ever since Celta Vigo earned the promotion to La Liga back in 2012, they had hardly been involved in the relegation battle. They are what you would say the middle team, neither close to the dreaded zone, and without the danger of the drop, nor strong enough to break into the upper tier of the table.
But since last season, due to the departure of key players, Celta find themselves fighting a relegation battle. They managed to avoid the drop last season, but the situation remains the same with them. They are in the bottom three heading into the game are in dire need of a win.
Date- Monday, January 6
Kick-Off- 01:30 AM (IST)
Sergio Alvarez and Jorge Saenz both remain on the sideline for Celta Vigo. In addition, Dennis Suarez and David Junca both failed to shake off the knock and won’t play here but Hugo Mallo is available for selection.
As for Osasuna, Fran Merida and Facundo Roncaglia both are suspended for this game, while Kike Barja and Ruben Martinez are out injured.
The visitors also have Nacho Vidal, Marc Cardona, and Raul Navas listed as questionable for this match.
CEV (Celta Vigo Expected Playing 11)- Ruben Blanco (GK), Olaza, Costas, Aidoo, Vazquez, Lobotka, Yokuslu, Rafinha, Sisto, Aspas, Mina
OSA (CA Osasuna Expected Playing 11)- Sergio Herrera (GK), Vidal, Garcia, Hernandez, Estupinan, Brasanac, Sanjurjo, Lopez, Garcia, Torres, Avila
No surprise here as once against Iago Aspas is the leading goal scorer for the team with seven goals.
Osasuna are being led by Chimy Avila. He has 8 goals to his name so far this season.
What separates Isausna from Celts is the goal threat in the side beyond Avila. The likes of Ruben Garcia and Roberto Torres can pop up with a goal or two.
Iago Aspas and Chimy Avila look the safest bet to lead the team in this game.
But don’t count the likes of Garcia and Torres out. The duo can be trusted in a team of two with the captaincy.
Celta Vigo must draw confidence from their record against CA Osasuna, especially at home, where they have managed five shut outs in the last seven games. We back the hosts to avoid a defeat here.
Goalkeeper- S Herrera
Defenders- Olaza, Costas, Estupinan, Hernandez
