Updated: October 2, 2014
on September 20, 2014 in Madrid, Spain.

Match Date: 05 October 2014 (local time)

Venue: Balaidos


Celta is keen on protecting its undefeated streak when they meet Villarreal at Balaidos. So far, the club has been outstanding in keeping a clean slate and the possibility of avoiding a loss remains high due to their home court advantage.


The contenders


Celta is still on a high after clinching a win against Elche. A dramatic goal from Nolito on the 90th helped the club scoop three (3) important points and avoided a possible scoreless stalemate. Indeed, it was one of the toughest encounters that Celta has encountered.


Pitted against the online betting favorite, Villarreal, the club is hoping that they can maintain their present performance or at the very least, force a stalemate.



With Mateo Mussachio sidelined for a month and a Europa League match to attend to, fatigue will be Villarreal’s greatest foe during its upcoming match against Celta. The situation becomes even worse because of the psychological impact brought by the 2-0 loss to Real Madrid.


Nevertheless, Villarreal will be taking all the positives in the upcoming match to clinch the much needed three (3) points.


Possible head turners

There is no doubt that Celta’s Nolito and Fabian Orellana will be giving Villarreal a major headache.
