A complete ode to offensive football will be lived on Saturday 2nd. December when FC Barcelona and RC Celta de Vigo clash in one of the estelar matches of LaLiga Santander Round 14.
Barça and Celta have scored the astonishing quantity of 24 goals in their last six meetings, which makes of this confrontation one of the Spanish and European scenery most vibrant duels.
The outstanding performances of Leo Messi, Iago Aspas, Luis Suárez, Pione Sisto and company still live in the mind of offensive play lovers and for this new league fixture between blaugranas and celtiñas it is expected another rush of adrenaline in both goals of the Les Corts field.
Even though Barcelona has beaten Celta by several goals in their last two league matches as locals (6-1 and 5-0), the level shown by Galician side, being one of the most intrepid oppositions over the blaugrana’s cathedral pitch in the recent seasons, takes us to imagine an attacking match scenario with plenty of goal scoring chances.
Furthermore, talking about a clash between two teams recognized by their technical virtuosity spectacle is guaranteed. Catalans and Galicians share characteristics while playing from the back, managing the ball with elegance in midfield and involving their forwards into creation and associative tasks, propitiating multiple situations of mark dragging and creating spaces behind opposite defenders.
On the other hand, both sides are a high pressing reference in LaLiga, which is a feature that provides spectator big emotions as keepers and defenders begin any offensive action with the ball played on the ground, so that becomes a huge loss risk in an extremely dangerous zone of the field.
If we add the interest originated by the comeback to Camp Nou of FC Barcelona’s former assistant coach Juan Carlos Unzué, now as Celta’s manager, we have a great display of attractions which not many matches in Europe would be able to offer us during that weekend. Barça’s manager Ernesto Valverde will need to be aware of the squad knowledge of Unzué, Luis Enrique’s assistant coach last season in team’s bench, therefore appreciating tactical issues will become one of the main objectives of the matchday as well.
So there is nothing missing to enjoy a wonderful spectacle at the Camp Nou, in which tactical discipline, technical details and, specially, Leo Messi’s powder will converge. The only one that is missing in order to complete this goals party is you. Let yourself be carried by Footy Legend to the action’s place and witness, from the best location, with the highest quality service and the absolute catering, of one of the most flamboyant football battles in European scene, when barcelonistas and celtiñas open fire to begin with December’s illusion.
