Sevilla FC – RC Celta de Vigo
It’s not just in German football that the ball will be rolling again next weekend. In Spain, too, the action is going thick and fast these days. After the finalists of the Copa del Rey were determined during the week, the 28th match day will start this weekend. The season is thus slowly but surely entering its home stretch and fans can look forward to the match between Sevilla FC and Celta Vigo to kick off this round. You can find out who we think will come out on top in our Sevilla – Celta Vigo tip.
If the fans of both teams are honest, they had hoped for a little more from their team this year. Looking at the La Liga table, it quickly becomes clear that we are dealing with two teams from the midfield. Sevilla FC is currently in 13th place and only four points ahead of the relegation places. The upcoming opponents Celta Vigo have a much better starting position with 35 points and tenth place.

Sevilla Form & Balance Check
The hosts from Sevilla will be truly happy when this season is finally over. Especially the performances in the league this year are underground and the Andalusians have to see that they are not dragged into the bottom of the table. At the moment, Sevilla have only 31 points and things are gradually getting tight again at the bottom. At least on the last matchday, the hoped-for liberation against Cadiz was achieved.
In the end, Sevilla won not undeservedly with 2:0 and now they have to confirm this on Friday. However, Sevilla FC’s performances in front of their own fans this season have been anything but good. In 13 home games, the Andalusians have only picked up 18 points.
2nd coaching change of the season
Sevilla FC’s poor season naturally calls for consequences and the Andalusian officials were forced to sack the coach for the second time this season a few weeks ago. After the former successful coach Lopetegui was sacked in October, Sampaoli had to take the fall a few weeks ago.
Mendilíba is now the new strong man. When things are not going well in the league, the performances in the Europa League are usually better. Sevilla are already in the quarter-finals, where the big favourites Manchester United now await.

Celta Vigo Form & Balance Check
Things are going much better for Celta Vigo this season than they have in recent years. Vigo will have nothing to do with relegation this year either. However, with 35 points after 27 matchdays, we have to say it’s again too little for the international business. Last season, 46 points were enough and coach Carlos Carvalhal’s men should certainly surpass that in the coming weeks.
If we take a closer look at the last few games, we can see that Celta de Vigo are doing very well at the moment. They haven’t lost in six matchdays and in that time Celta Vigo have won three and drawn three.
Aspas is the life insurance
One of the reasons why Celta Vigo are doing well this season is the personnel of Iago Aspas. The now 35-year-old is and remains Vigo’s life insurance. The attacker has been active for Celta since 2015 and Aspas has been able to resist one or two attempts by teams like Real, Barça or Atletico to poach him.
His statistics this season show just how important he really is. After 27 match days, Aspas has scored a staggering twelve goals, making him by far the top scorer for his team.
Celta Vigo facts & analysis
– Currently in 10th place with 35 points.
– Last 2:2 against Almeria
– Since 6 games without defeat
Predicted line-up – last updated 5 April 2023
The hosts from Sevilla will not make any changes to their first eleven compared to the 2-0 win over Cadiz. Dimitrovic will once again be between the posts for Bono. Rakitic will play on the ten. Up front in attack, En-Nesyri should again provide the goals. Gil and Ocampos will be out on the flanks.
The visitors from Celta Vigo will also go into the game unchanged after six games in a row without defeat. Vigo will start in a 4-4-2, with Aspas and Seferovic at the heart of the defence.
