VAL vs CEV Dream11 Team Prediction: Celta Vigo and Valencia look to recover from dejecting defeats as both side looks to open points.
After being on the wrong side of events in their league opener, Valencia will be looking to register their first win of the new La Liga campaign when they square off against Celta Vigo today. In what was a bemusing end to their previous encounter, the side ended up throwing away a solid lead with no one but themselves for the two points they ended up losing from the encounter.
Leading against Real Sociedad, Valencia ended up missing the chance to convert a penalty with 10 minutes lead, a narrative which saw Real Sociedad buoyed as the pushed to level things on the day. Basques ended up scoring for Real Sociedad in the 101 st minute, resorting parity in the encounter and leaving Valencia dejected from their league opener.
Elsewhere for Celta Vigo, life in the newest edition of La Liga couldn’t have been fathomed on any worse a note with the side trounced by Real Madrid. Despite playing against a 10 man Real Madrid side after Luka Modric was shown a red card, Celta Vigo ended up leaking three goals, subsequently being put down 3-1 in what traversed as a runaway win for Real Madrid.
With both these sides familiarising themselves with each other prior to the start of the season, exchanging players in the transfer window with Gomez moving to Valencia from Real Sociedad and Santi Mina going the other way, the two will be looking to come hot out f the blocks in this one. Both are in dire need of their first win to the campaign, one which prove pivotal to lay down the foundation of more fruitful things to come for the winner.

Dream 11 Picks for VAL vs CEV
Goal-keepers for VAL vs CEV Dream 11
With both these sides failing to keep a cleansheet in their opening encounter, we don’t see a cleansheet being kept today either. This is clash which will be contested with fervour, one where the attacking sojourns way outnumber the determination to keep things tight at the back. Our main reasoning picking out a goal-keeper based on this narrative was choosing the goal-keeper who’s not only a better shot stopper but bound to register more saves as well. This sees us opt for Celta Vigo’s Ruben Blanco after he put on a solid show against Real Madrid the last time around.

Defenders for VAL vs CEV Dream 11
We have picked out only the three defenders here, one coming in from Celta Vigo with us picking out their CB Nestor Araujo due to his penchant to put his body forward and pull off some well cued tackles and blocks. From Valencia we have gone ahead with the more attacking names, choosing players who’ll be cantering their way forward in a bid to provide crucial support to the forward line.
This sees us pick up the duo of Daniel Wass and Jose Gaya from the outfit.
Mid-fielders for VAL vs CEV Dream 11
With Valencia unbeaten against Celta Vigo in the side’s clashes since 2017 and all of the 6 previous fixtures here seeing both the sides score, this one promises to be a goals feast. The attacks will run this show, regaling us in a wondrous extradonaire of attacking football, seeing us pick out names who are bound to contribute to their side’s goals.
Dani Parejo is back for Valencia after seeing his suspension end and should be included in the side’s playing 11 for this one, seeing us pick him up as well. Carlos Soler comes into our Dream 11 side as well from the outfit while from Celta Vigo we have chosen the duo of Brais Mendez and Staislav Lobotka. Although Beltran scored for them in the last match, he should start this one as a substitute again, seeing us selecting these two.
Forwards for VAL vs CEV Dream 11
One of the few sides to engage in two strikers up the pitch, Valencia have tasted consummate success from their formation over the course of the last year. This sees us rope in both Kevin Gameiro and Rodrigo Moreno from the side while from the opposition we are picking out Gabriel Fernandez.
