‘Celta match big, but not vital’

Luis Garcia has outlined the ‘good feelings’ he says Getafe have and now must ‘confirm’ in facing Celta Vigo in a ‘big game, although not a vital one’.

The Madrid side host their Galician opponents in Thursday evening’s Week 6 fixture with four points to their name.

Despite this seeing the side loiter in the lower mid-table for now and the side having lost 4-1 at the weekend to Real Madrid, Getafe’s Coach says the mood is good.

“The Celta game is a game to confirm the good feelings that we have had in the last few games,” Garcia declared at today’s Press conference.

“This is because, after seeing the game at the Bernabeu again, we lost 4-1, but the team was good and at times we thought we could have gotten something.

“Against Osasuna before that we won 2-1 and played good football and now we must reaffirm this with a win to move up to seven points in the standings.

“A victory at this stage means a lot. I want the fans to realise that this is as important a game as Osasuna was and so the fans and team must be together for the 90 minutes.

“The late kick-off time doesn’t help so I understand if fewer fans come, it is logical. For older people and those who are parents, football should not be at that time.

“From this, I encourage fans to come because this is a big game, although not vital as this is only the sixth round.”
