Celta and Villarreal open this Friday the 18th day of LaLiga Santander (9:00 p.m.) after achieving disparate results in their last matches. The Galician team, on the rise after the arrival of ‘Chacho’ Coudet, saw its good run against Real Madrid stopped (2-0) and fell with a crash against Ibiza in the Copa del Rey (5-2). For its part, the ‘Yellow Submarine’ arrives after winning the regional derby against Levante (2-1) and overcoming the second round without major problems against Zamora (1-4).
Gonzalez challenges, one of the most reputable tipsters on the social network Betsfy, has been set at this meeting to make his pick. “A priori, according to the classification, it could be a duel between direct rivals for a place in Europe. However, I think that Villarreal has much more economic power and a more ambitious project than that of Celta ”, he explains to begin with.
According to the tipster, although the work of the new celestial coach, Eduardo Coudet, “has a lot of merit because the team was having a very bad time and flirting with relegation”, he does not believe he has “the necessary potential” to aspire to a European position. “His recent performance of winning practically all his games is not entirely natural and, therefore, he will soon have to go down,” he predicts.
Another factor that concerns the favoritism of Unai Emery’s team is that “they do not suffer any new casualties compared to previous games (Paco Alcácer, Iborra, Coquelin …)”, while Celta lost two of their players due to injury to this clash. most decisive players: Iago Aspas and Nolito. “I think you can suffer a lot,” he says.
Under these circumstances, Gonzalez challenges advises placing a multiple bet on Betfair: Villarreal win or draw, a card is shown in the match and at least one goal is scored between both teams. In addition, he relies on the last 10 precedents to reaffirm his prognosis: “There was at least one goal in nine of them, at least one card was taken in all of them and Villarreal won or tied six out of 10 times,” he concludes.
