Sunday take the middle motors Celta Vigo and Malaga each other. Both teams need a victory to make the leap into the top half.
Celta Vigo: The Galicians have energetically begun in 2017
Celta Vigo for the winter was certainly not inconvenient. For the first time in ten years the blue shirts playing European football again. Celta Vigo knew narrowly to hibernate in the Europa League, but those extra midweek games did go frequently at the expense of performance at home. After sixteen rounds of play, the team of coach Berizzo namely no further than right row. The chance Celta Vigo this season again managed to finish in the top six is therefore very small.
It was therefore not surprising that Celta Vigo on Tuesday in the Copa del Rey to visit Valencia (1-4 win) took office at full strength. Just like last season Berizzo taking the cup very seriously. Last season came to him regularly stand point loss in the competition, but because of the total lack of opposition from Valencia did Celta Vigo last Tuesday the accelerator pedal a little deep. There is for the Argentine coach no reason to circulate Sunday. The 1-4 at the Mestalla in any case an excellent start to 2017, something the blue shirts Sunday undoubtedly will want to follow up.
Probable lineup Celta Vigo
Ruben Blanco; Jonny, Fontas, Cabral, Mallo; Marcelo Díaz, Radoja; Bongonda, Pablo Hernandez, Wass; Iago Aspas
Malaga: The Andalusians have a new coach
Malaga had quite a turbulent Christmas. Coach Juande Ramos saw no future in the Rosaleda and yielded unexpectedly his contract in.The administration responded surprised, but it did agree to the request of the coach. The results of recent weeks and the current eleventh indeed fall somewhat disappointing, although I did not think the purified Ramos as soon would give quit.
Former Malaga player Marcelo Romero was appointed as successor and makes Sunday in Vigo so his official debut as coach of Malaga. Many experience the Uruguayan coach has not yet. In recent seasons, he worked as an assistant at Malaga, before that he worked for a while with the amateurs of Alhaurin de la Torre. However, this is of course not begin to compare with working at the highest level. So it is remains to be seen exactly what Romero is planning and how that will turn out. As he worked already as an assistant under Juande Ramos is obvious that he will change little for the time being. You may wonder whether it is advantageous for Malaga knew not win five official games in a row more and wait even still on its first away win of the season.
Probable lineup Malaga
Kameni; Juan Carlos Villanueva, Llorente, Rosales; Camacho, Fornals; Chory Castro, Juanpi Anor, Ontiveros; Sandro Ramírez
