Getafe vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Getafe are currently bottom in La Liga, and have suffered three losses in their last five league games. Under the management of Jose Bordalas Getafe were renowned for their defensive and disciplined style of play, but Bordalas is now at Valencia. Current boss Quique Sanches Flores is a highly experienced and well-travelled manager, and he has his task cut out for the rest of the season.
Celta Vigo, on the other hand, are currently 15th in the league. They too have lost three of their last five league games, and continue to rely on 34-year old striker Iago Aspas. The likes of Brais Mendez, Denis Suarez and Santi Mina will have to step up.
