After winning their first game in four games last round, Celta Vigo will be looking to keep up the good work when they host Deportivo Alaves at the Municipal de Balaidos in the 18th round of the Spanish La Liga.
The hosts have been in a really inconsistent form in recent weeks in La Liga. Celta have collected 8 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last match in La Liga was against Malaga at home where they won 3-1.
Celta are sitting in the 9th place in the league table with 24 points from 7 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses. They have scored 28 goals and conceded 32 since the start of the season.
Fabien Orellana is fit to play once again, but Eduardo Berizzo is likely to introduce the Chilean from the bench given his side’s recent strong form. Iago Aspas is on a hot streak and will continue up top, with Pablo Hernandez and Daniel Wass helping to support him.
The visitors are just two points behind the hosts in the league table. However Alaves have been in a really better form in recent weeks. The team have gone 5 league games straight without a loss. Alaves have collected 9 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Athletic Bilbao away from home where the game finished goalless.
Alaves are sitting in 12th place in the league table with 22 points from 5 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses. They have scored 15 goals and conceded 17 since the start of the season.
Theo Hernandez is back from suspension and should slot straight back in at left-back for the away side. Gaizka Toquero suffered from flu during the week, but the experienced forward could be ready to start ahead of Edgar on the right-hand side.
