The Celtic will try to avoid his worst league streak of this century

In the last 34 years, Celta never added six straight losses, something that the team can suffer if next Sunday they lose to Villarreal.


The beginning of 1986 was a drama for Celta. The vigueses opened it with defeat and losing gradually became routine until chaining eight consecutive losses, an unprecedented streak in Vigo, still in force today as the worst in history. Since then, almost 34 years have passed and no celestial team even approached that cave of eight consecutive deep losses. The lowest that Celta fell at that time was the five defeats in a row, a streak that was repeated several times.

Currently, the Oscar team has five consecutive games lost, although the first four correspond to the Scribe era. You don't have to go far to find another identical streak, not even a year. With Cardoso in command, Celta chained five defeats in a row between December last year and January 2019.

The case is that the threat of embarrassment looms over the current celestial template. In the last 34 years, Celta never added defeat after defeat for six weeks, something that current Celtic players can suffer if they lose to Villarreal next Sunday at the Estadio de La Cerámica. Such an assumption would push them directly to a black page of history.

Without margin. Celta is obliged to win in Vila-Real to avoid this bad run, but especially to straighten the qualifying course. And it is that the vigueses are immersed in the descent posts, in the penultimate position, to four points of salvation and only three above the Leganés colista.

The direct rivals of the Olympic team have complicated clashes next weekend. Leganés receives Barcelona in Butarque, Espanyol faces Getafe at RCDE Stadium, Betis measures Valencia at Villamarín and Mallorca visits Levante. The four matches will be held before La Cerámica, so Celta will start the match knowing what their rivals did.
