Barcelona Vs Celta Vigo Live Online Commentary
Barcelona took advantage of Real Madrid’s new slip up to take over the very top of La Liga table. They have a single point advantage, but they can’t allow mistakes because Los Blancos still have a match in hand (just against Celta). Barca have won six consecutive games at Camp Nou scoring massive 20 goals during this period which is exactly four per game.
Meanwhile, Celta made a huge achievment by kicking Shakhtar Donetsk out of UEFA Europa League. Head coach Eduardo Berizzo has a strong attacking potential with the striker Iago Aspas as the main man. The Spaniard, who bagged as many as 14 goals so far in this campaign, was on the scoresheet in Wednesday’s 2–2 draw with Espanyol at Balaidos. As for Celta’s team news, Facundo Roncaglia returns from a ban and should start at centre-back with Fontas suspended. Jozabed could replace Pablo Hernandez, who is carrying a knock in midfield.
