Las Palmas face improving Celta Vigo

October 16, 2017 Off By Sports Writer

Las Palmas will be looking to end their poor start to the season on Monday evening against Celta Vigo, a game which will complete round eight of fixtures.

The Gran Canarian side have seen poor form result in a managerial change having appointed form Valencia and Liverpool coach Paco Ayestaran as head coach.

His opening game in charge was a fairly tough one, facing league leaders Barcelona and losing 3-0 in that infamous behind closed doors game before the international break.

Having re-grouped over the break, the Canaries now look to correct their poor form against Celta, who have been improving over recent weeks and are slowly moving up the table.

The visitors have lost just one in their last five games, and come into the game on the back of a draw with Girona.

For the home side, Loic Remy, Sergi Samper and David Simon have returned to full fitness, whilst Celta have top scorer Maxi Gomez suspended and Pablo Hernandez struggling.

Hugo Mallo and Facundo Roncaglia are also missing through injury for Juan Carlos Unzue’s side.

A win for Celta would see them climb into the top ten above Athletic Bilbao, whilst Las Palmas would move up-to 12th with three points.
