Las Palmas and Celta want to avoid relegation in Gran Canaria


This Monday against RC Celta at the Gran Canaria Stadium (9:00 p.m.), in the last match of the eighth day of LaLiga EA Sports, UD Las Palmas seeks a victory that will allow it to leave the relegation positions, to which it could the Galician team will fall in case of defeat.

In their return to the highest category of Spanish football, the Canaries have only managed to win one of their seven games played, a week ago at home against the also needy Granada (1-0), where they also scored one of the only two goals they accumulate so far in your locker; the other dates back to the first matchday against Mallorca.

Despite their obvious difficulties in front of goal, their solvency at the back – with six goals conceded, the same as Real Madrid and one more than Atlético – has allowed them not to be left behind in the safety zone, which they score with their same five points, precisely his rival from this Monday.

And the light blue team has not started the course in the best way either; Four defeats, a win against Almería at home (2-3) and two draws, the last of them during the week against Deportivo Alavés (1-1), have left them on the brink of the abyss, and Rafa Benítez will have to redirect the situation to prevent Galicians from living with uncertainty for another year.

The dramatic match a little over a week ago in Montjuïc did not help emotionally either, when the Galicians beat FC Barcelona 0-2 in the 80th minute and a final push by the Blaugranas made them leave Barcelona without a prize (3 -2).

García Pimienta will have to deal with the absences of Sandro Ramírez, Fabio González, Alberto Moleiro, Benito Ramírez and Omenuke Mfulu, while the visiting team will have the absences of Luca de la Torre, sent off against the babazorros, and the injured Franco Cervi.
