Celta Vigo v Manchester United Preview, UEFA Europa League, Semi-Final 1st Leg, 4th May 2017.

It’s not been a great month for Spanish side Celta Vigo with them losing five, drawing once and then winning just three games. Us English complain that the fixture list is so rammed that it’s a surprise to see the players staying fit throughout the season. Just look at the Spanish leagues also with Celta Viga having to play nine games in thirty days.

Celta Viga have done well to get this far in the Europa League competition with them recently knocking out Gent in the quarter finals. They will be hoping to continue that run and potentially grab a win at home against Manchester United, even though their opponents are the solid favourites to progress and eventually win the competition.

Manchester United failed to capitalize against Swansea City on Sunday where the Welsh side managed to hold United to 1 – 1 draw at Old Trafford. A win for Manchester United would of put them into fourth position above rivals Manchester City, and then also just two points behind another rival Liverpool, and also have a game in hand.

In the Premiership we do see that Manchester United have a very hard run in to the end of the season, with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs away from home still left to play. If they do not get anything against either of these two sides then we could see United saying goodbye to a potential top four finish. They also have Southampton and Crystal Palace yet to play, two more tough opponents.

Celta Vigo Team News :

Striker Giuseppe Rossi wont be able to appear against his former club due to an injury while goalkeeper Ruben Blanco has been out for some time now. Newly injured left back Carles Planas is out now with a knee injury and will not feature, yet these few injury concerns are nothing compared to Manchester United.

Manchester United Team News :

Defenders Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw are doubts for Manchester United with the pair suffering knocks against Swansea City at the weekend, although we have seen Phil Jones and Chris Smalling return to training yet I can’t see them being included just yet. Juan Mata was a sub against Swansea so has returned from his groin issue.

Celta Vigo v Manchester United Head to Head Statistics:

This will be the first time these two clubs have met so no previous head to head statistics to go on. I am looking forward to this fixture come Thursday night and we can only hope Manchester United manage to get back to winning ways against the Spanish. They are the favourites to win but need to play well to grab anything away from home here.

Celta Vigo v Manchester United Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Europa League action this weeks brings us a semi final worth watching with Spanish side Celta Vigo playing hosts to Manchester United. The game can be viewed live via BT Sports 2 and it can of course be viewed in high definition. The home side are not in the best of form coming into this game but do seem to be playing okay in this competition, their luck however will soon run out unless they improve.

Manchester United have been hit and miss all season if I am honest. Granted they haven’t lost many, yet the draws they have earned really should of been turned into wins of some sort. Maybe then they wouldn’t be struggling to finish in the top four, and instead be seriously challenging for the Premiership title once again.

Although we know it is expected of Manchester United to win here come Thursday, if they are not careful then they could be caught off guard when the Spanish side counter attack. Especially as Manchester United have a serious lack of defensive options coming into this game, regardless of the fact that Chris Smalling, Jones and Bailly have returned to training this week.

My predictions for this game is leaning more towards a draw of some sort, this is mainly because Manchester United are really struggling with injuries in the closing stages of the season. I’m going to go with both teams to score and for the game to end as a draw for my banker tip. With the other taking a correct score of Manchester United to win 2 – 0 on the night.
