Match status: 2020/21 La Liga - Matchweek 1
Kick-off:
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar)
Probably not your ideal season curtain-raiser, these teams could still make for a pretty good watch this weekend. Celta Vigo are a very interesting side to watch, as they dazzle fans with their scintillating piece of football.

They were inches away from the drop-zone last season, managing to retain their La Liga status. As the new campaign kicks off, the Celtics will be looking to turn performances into results, when they take on Eibar in a few hours’ time.

Eibar vs Celta Vigo Team News

Even though they weren’t necessary poor last season, Eibar would have been pretty disappointed with their league finish. With a decent return of 42 points from 38 games, Los Armeros clinched 14th-place on the log.

The expectations at Eibar have increased lately, thanks to their exploits in recent times. Mendilibar’s charges claimed tenth, ninth and twelfth spots through 2017 to 2019, showing their strong credentials in the Spanish La Liga.

However, plummeting down to 14th last time out was a dip – one that the supporters did not kindly take to. With six points separating them from the relegation places last season, Eibar successfully extended their top-flight stay for yet another season. 

Now, with another season about to kickoff, Los Armeros will have their sights set on a top-half finish, perhaps even challenging for continental qualification. They will have relegation-contenders Celta Vigo to contend in their opening match of the campaign.

Eibar ended the previous season in humiliation fashion, surrendering to a heavy 4-0 defeat to Villarreal on the final day. However, they have taken part in four friendlies ever since – defeating Rayo Vallecano, drawing Osasuna and Betis, and then losing out to Leganes.

In terms of summer transfers, the Gunsmiths have recruited Damian Kadzior and Recio for the upcoming season, whilst cashing in on a number of players as well. Celta Vigo will have their work cut-out to salvage a result against Mendilibar’s charges this weekend.

The Celtics were lucky to have escaped relegation last term, staying just a point clear of the drop-zone. They won only eight games all through the season, drawing a league-high 16 games, as inconsistency was the order of the day for the Sky Blues.

Bolstering their options with the likes of Miguel Baeza, Renato Tapia and Alvaro Vadillo added to the ranks, Celta Vigo could play out a better season this time around. Unfortunately, Vigo lost Rafinha and Smolov, both players finding their way back to Barcelona and Lokmotiv Moscow respectively.

Of course, Junyent will once again be banking on Iago Aspas to come up with the goods this season. The 33-year-old is very clinical, and could be instrumental in Celta avoiding relegation from the top division.
