Celta Vigo underachieved last season. There was a point when it really looked like they’d be relegated, but coach Fran Escriba came in for the final 12 matches and, along with brilliance of the back-from-injury Iago Aspas, helped the team finish 17th. Escriba has been kept on as coach. Although the jury is still out on just how good a coach he is, he should be a net positive for Celta Vigo. In the transfer market, they’ve added Denis Suarez from Barcelona and there is major excitement about him due to the fact he is from Vigo. Santi Mina has also returned to the club, but the fact they’ve lost starting centre-forward Maxi Gomez, who had 31 goals in 75 appearances for the club, is a significant blow. It’s difficult to tell if this squad is better than it was last season. They’ve added some quality, but lost some of it too. When it comes to Celta’s strength, their main strength is clearly Aspas. He is the leader in attack and so often carries the team on his shoulders. They really missed him when he missed a couple of months with injury last season, but when he came back he scored 10 goals and provided four assists across the final nine games. Their weakness is related to their strength, as their weakness is their overreliance on Aspas. When he’s not there, they are not nearly the same, and it’ll be a worry if the 32-year-old misses time with injury again.

Target


Top-half finish. It would be a stretch to expect Celta Vigo to qualify for Europe, but they’ll hope to avoid relegation much more comfortably than they did last year.

Season Review
2018/2019

№17: Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo stayed up and they did so thanks to Iago Aspas. The fact that Aspas was injured for so much of the season between January and March meant that Celta slipped into relegation trouble. With Aspas, Celta earned 1.37 points per game, but across their 11 matches without him they were earning just 0.36 points per game. This, then, was the story of their season. Aspas scored 10 goals before his injury and Celta seemed fine. They then fell into the bottom three while he was out injured, before he returned to score 10 times in nine matches to keep his team up. Aspas, therefore, was Celta’s strength, while there were many areas of weakness, from the defence to the goalkeeping to the away form to the fact that they went through three coaches during the campaign. Not only did Celta have three coaches, but each one had a different style and this seemed to confuse the squad rather than help them. After Antonio Mohamed and Miguel Cardoso, they eventually settled on Fran Escriba for the final 12 matches. They were better under Escriba, but this was probably more so because of Aspas’ return from injury. There are many problems at Celta as they look ahead to next season. Escriba is staying as coach, but he needs to find ways to make the team better as a whole. The club also needs to improve the squad and to bring in some help for Aspas.
