CELTA NEWS

Celta is currently playing in an excellent form. They are only 4 points behind 6th placed Villareal and with a great series of results in December and especially January they are nearing the place which leads to Europa League in the end of the season, which was their primary goal. Celta is exceptional at home - in their last 15 matches in all competitions they were defeated only once. During that period, they played against Barcelona and Real Madrid and stayed undefeated.

ALAVES NEWS

Since the beginning of November, Alaves recorded 8 draws in all competitions. Their primary goal in Primera is to stay in the league and it seems they will accomplish that - they are currently 12th on the table. However, it seems that their performance level isn't high enough to eliminate Celta in Copa del Rey semifinals. On the other hand, they will certainly do their best, since this is their chance to qualify for the Copa del Rey final.

SUMMING UP!

Celta Vigo is the favorite in the forthcoming match. The home team will probably have difficulties to break the lock of Alaves' defense and this match should be very similar to the one that Celta won by 1-0 15 days ago.
