Preview: Eibar-Celta

Juan Carlos Unzue is facing must-win territory when Celta Vigo take on Eibar this Sunday after a poor start to the season.

Eibar boss Jose Luis Mendilibar on the importance of winning at home: “We’re two teams that want to pick up points.

“They may have more needs than us, but for us it’s also important to win at home because that lets us approach our away games with more calmness.

“It’s taking a while for their changes to be assimilated, but they have a very good team and they’ll pull through.

“They’ve had two days less to rest, so I think they’ll make changes.”

Celta boss Unzue on his side ‘correcting their trajectory’: “It’s been a week where teams that weren’t expected to pick up points did.

“It’s true that this certainly gives us fewer options [to move up the table], but I think we’re at the point of correcting our trajectory, and I’m convinced that we will.”
